Tom Hiddleston took some time to address the rumors about filling James Bond’s shoes on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday.


Since the actor portrays a British spy on the hit BBC show, The Night Manager, fans are waiting for the announcement that he will be playing the most famous international spy of them all on the big screen.

“I play a British spy in The Night Manager, so people I think have made the link,” Hiddleston said. “I mean, as somebody who grew up with Sean Connery and Roger Moore, when you mention it there’s a part of me that goes, ‘Really? Are you kidding?’”

The late night host also asked if the United Kingdom would accept an American James Bond and the actor suggested Larry David. Kimmel also cited that Henry Cavill who plays Superman is British and its only fair to have an American James Bond too.

“That’s the most revolting thing I could say, right?” Kimmel asked after making the comparison.

“Yeah,” Hiddleston agreed.
