Suave, so very suave (Picture: AP)Henry Golding is making a play for the role of James Bond as he rocked the Academy Awards red carpet in a suave tuxedo.
Golding, Henry Golding.
Wearing a custom Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo, Henry looked every inch the movie star as he walked the red carpet and it’s sure to keep his name at the top of the bookie’s lists for the next Bond.
Golding, Henry Golding (Picture: AP)Idris Elba’s name has cropped up a few times, so has Tom Hardy’s, and there was a lot of talk of Richard Madden nabbing the role of the famous secret agent.
Double oh-hello(Picture: AP)But Crazy Rich Asians star Henry was thrown into the mix in mid-February; and when quizzed by TMZ, the actor wasn’t giving anything away.
They caught him at LAX airport in Los Angeles and asked whether rumours he has been shortlisted for the role were true, Henry apparently ‘flashed a huge smile’ and then came over all coy.
Current Bond, Daniel Craig, still has one more movie to go and will reprise his role as James in the franchise’s next movie Bond 25.
Fans will be waiting a while to see him in action, though, as Bond 25 has been pushed back again to 8 April 2020, MGM has confirmed.
It’s the second time the movie’s release has been delayed as director Danny Boyle stepped down, paving the way for Cary Fukunaga to take over instead.
Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Lea Seydoux will all return for the 25th film.
