    Blame Ed Sherry' banging his geetuar through a loop pedal for the Ginger revolution, as now it seems Damian Lewis is the new hot contender.

    A familiar screen face in the US, and very familiar with the Etonian accent as needed. could tie-in with the Scottish theme. B'fair cut it recently from a whopping x51.

    BP @ x4.5 (fractional: 7/2) with Unibet, else x3.5 most other places.

    Just checked Paddy Power betting for next James Bond. Who is James Huston? I'd LOVE Rupert Frend to be 007 - think he was 100/1 a while back. 33/1 now ...

    Available at 51 in couple of places. This market is really best left alone to the high level of price flux, and sheer amount of possible contenders.

    The next movie won't be released until 2018, so who knows when they'll officially confirm who's doing it.

    Worth keeping an eye out for dramatic price movements all the same e.g. Theo James is at 67 with SBet, but also at just 11 with WH.

    In tradition they'll mos likely choose over 35yo (eliminates most contenders), and of course, a man for the job. Unless they rename the movie series 'Julie Bond'.
