The Highlander Hero Emerges as Top Contender for the Iconic James Bond Role

Outlander star Sam Heughan has reportedly been asked to audition for the role of James Bond by producer Barbara Broccoli. The Bond team is said to be keen on casting a Scottish actor to pay homage to the character's roots, with Heughan's odds of getting the role cut from 50/1 to 20/1. Cillian Murphy is also creeping up the list, with odds cut from 8/1 to 4/1. The current frontrunners include Tom Hiddleston, Richard Madden, and James Norton. Daniel Craig will play 007 for the last time in Bond 25.
