Current 007 Daniel Craig is on the outs from the famous spy role and the race to replace him is starting to get a little more heated now. Elba has been up and down the market which has been pretty competitive, it has to be said.

Richard Madden is a fairly new name to be up at the head of the market. The Scottish actor, perhaps most widely known for his roles as Robb Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones and as David Budd in the award-winning BBC show Bodyguard.

Tom Hiddleston was the previous outright favourite, but he has taken a step back to 4/1 and in the Ladbrokes market there are currently now seven actors at odds of 10/1 or shorter* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 9th, 2019 at 9:25 pm).

Along with Hiddleston going on the drift, joining him have been Cillian Murphy and James Norton, both of them going out a repetition mark in the market.
