Campbell: ‘Henry Cavill could be a future 007’

written by Luciana IX.VII

GoldenEye and Casino Royale director Martin Campbell has said that Henry Cavill could potentially play James Bond in the future.

Man of Steel star Cavill auditioned for the 007 role in 2005, eventually losing out to Daniel Craig. Campbell told The Express that Craig had the edge thanks to his turn as a gangster in Layer Cake.

“Henry did a great screen test for Bond. So did Daniel, although he arrived for his looking really tired after a night flight from America where he was finishing up a movie called The Invasion. None of us making the casting decision were 100% sure. I needed a couple of days to think about it. Over that weekend I saw Daniel’s film Layer Cake and he showed such terrific charm in that that it convinced me he should get the part.

Perhaps Henry Cavill was too young for it then, he was 22 at the time we auditioned for Casino Royale, but maybe he could still be James Bond in the future, after all, Pierce Brosnan did a great screen test only to eventually get the part years later.”
