Tom Hiddleston “Would Not Take It Lightly” If He Were Offered A Go At James Bond

I know that everyone wants Idris Elba to be the next James Bond, and it would be the coolest thing ever if he were, but let’s pause for a second to appreciate Tom Hiddleston’s extremely polite response to the suggestion that he could be the next 007:

“I simply love the theme tune, the tropes and the mythology. I love the whole thing. If it ever came knocking, it would be an extraordinary opportunity. And I’m very aware of the physicality of the job. I would not take it lightly.”

Hiddles. Oh my goodness, how demure and adorable is that? Is Tom Hiddleston actually just full of kittens on the inside? I feel like if you have Tom Hiddleston a cookie he would be thanking you for an hour. Also, “theme tune”? STAHP.

Rumors are swirling because Hiddleston has done such a bang-up job on the BBC’s adaptation of The Night Manager. So who knows? If Idris Elba is insane enough to pass up the opportunity (or anyone is insane enough not to offer it to him), we may have a Bond made of kittens soon.
