One of the three sons of the late Roger Moore, who gave life to the secret agent James Bond in seven films between 1973 and 1985, has not hesitated to publicly share one of the few requirements that, in his opinion, the next actor must meet. to play this icon of popular culture in the United Kingdom: a position that became vacant after the premiere of ‘No time to die’ in 2021, the latest film by Daniel Craig.
Geoffrey Moore, 56 years old and also known as ‘Jaffa’, is an actor and producer who has participated in action films such as ‘Jade Target’ (1992) and ‘Fit to Kill’ (1993), with comic overtones and a very similar to the deliveries of the 007 saga that its progenitor starred in. In his talk with the Daily Express tabloid, the artist has made clear his desire that the next spy in the service of his majesty be British and, above all, that he not be American.
“It would be ridiculous,” said the second of Roger Moore’s offspring and his third wife, the Italian Luisa Mattioli, with whom he also had actress Deborah Moore and producer Christian Moore. “Let’s see, there’s a lot of talent there, but it has to be English. Even if it had an excellent accent, it wouldn’t work. It has to be British. It’s a typically English franchise,” he added without taking into account that Sean Connery, the first James Bond and the most acclaimed to date, was Scottish and pro-independence, or that Pierce Brosnan, the fifth performer to embody the character, comes from the Republic of Ireland.
Be that as it may, the truth is that the main candidates to win such a coveted role are British. Henry Cavill, star of the series ‘The Witcher’ and the last Superman, became the great favorite after Idris Elba finally ruled out his presence in this close race. The Scottish Richard Madden, known for playing Robb Stark in ‘Game of Thrones’, and the versatile Tom Hardy were also considered for such a demanding job.
However, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who became known in the irreverent ‘Kick-Ass’ (2010) and received a Golden Globe for the thriller ‘Nocturnal Animals’ (2016), is now the best positioned to don the traditional agent 007 tuxedo. “He did a camera test in September and the producers were delighted. Barbara [Broccoli] He adores him and for now it is his first asset,” a team source revealed to The Sun newspaper at the end of this year.
