Henry Cavill Says he was Almost Cast as James Bond Instead of Daniel Craig

Many of Henry Cavill’s admirers would like to see him take on the enduring role of James Bond. The Bond series needs a replacement for Daniel Craig as Bond after his retirement. 

Cavill acknowledged that he has come extremely close to landing the role in the past and would be delighted to be considered moving forward as Host of the Happy Sad Confused Podcast.

They said I was in the running for the role, said Cavill. I was told that Daniel Craig and I were the only two options when we were ultimately left, and I was the youngest. They chose Daniel, and it was a fantastic decision.

I was probably not ready at the time. Daniel has done a fantastic job in past movies, so I’m happy they made that choice. It was a fun experience at the time, and it boosted my career. This was the critical element. I was doing a lot of auditions, which went very well.

I love those guys, Barbara and Mike. I have fond memories of having a cocktail with them at Mike’s house. I had a vesper martini with Barbara, which was suitable for Casino Royale. It was a fun time. 

And it was great to be in the middle of those things. Whether I’m being considered for the role or not, I don’t know, but it would be fun to have a chance, and if it’s not there, I want to see what they’ll do because I think they’re great.

Could Henry Cavill become the Next James Bond?

Henry Cavill might be the next James Bond, but it doesn’t seem realistic. The next actor must be roughly 30 years old, as stated by veteran James Bond producer Michael G. Wilson at a celebration for the character’s 60th anniversary at the British Film Institute.

We’ve tried looking at young people in the past, But if we try to view it, we need help to get it to work. Remember, Bond is already a veteran. He has had some experience. James Bond is a person who has been through wars. He probably was in the SAS or something. He’s not a high school kid you can bring in and get started. That’s why it works for a 30-year-old
