The role for the next James Bond could be pointed one direction — right at Harry Styles.
There is still much left up in the air about the next Bond film, but most rumors claim that Christopher Nolan will take over directing duties. Christopher recently directing Harry in "Dunkirk," and the singer's acting chops were widely praised.
While at the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards, "Spectre" film editor Lee Smith championed Harry as the next Bond (after Daniel Craig takes on the role one more time.)
"Harry could do it. If they wanted a younger Bond then why not? He has got it," Lee said, according to the Daily Star. He added that Harry is "talented" and "charismatic."
If all of this were to happen, Harry wouldn't debut as Bond until closer to 2022. He would be the youngest Bond in history.
"Harry is really good and he can go all the way. He is an exceptional talent and a complete natural on camera," Lee said. "You would have thought you were dealing with a guy with many years of experience. You would never know that was his first film. I didn't know who Harry was.
He continued, "Of course my daughter explained to me that you don't get any more famous than Harry Styles. But he was really good and a genuinely charismatic fellow. If he wants to act, I cannot imagine he would not have a great future."
Whether Harry returns to the screen is unknown though. While promoting "Dunkirk" last year, the heartthrob told reporters, "I'm thinking, 'What am I doing?' I feel very lucky to be a part of 'Dunkirk.' I'd do this one again but it may be one and done – I'd do this one again. I really enjoyed this. I've peaked too soon! There's nowhere to go."
