Sam Worthington: the next Bond?

"Actor Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans) has been tipped to become the next 007 in the wake of news that the 23rd Bond film has been placed on indefinite hold. The actor did a screen test for Casino Royale, the 21st official Bond movie, but eventually lost out to Daniel Craig," reports the BBC. "Bookmaker William Hill has made the 33-year-old 5/2 favourite to take over the role should Daniel Craig not return for his third instalment in the series. British actor Christian Bale is 7/1 to take on the highly coveted role - as is Hollywood star Will Smith. However Craig, 42, is expected to return as Bond for another film."
