“I don’t think I’m the right choice for it,” Taron told The Telegraph. “You have to be consistently statuesque to be that guy. And that’s something that I am still striving for. I’ve always struggled with my weight.”
Taron went on to explain that playing Bond “is a bit like being a brand ambassador as well as being an actor. And that could be really fun in microcosm, but I’m sure I read that [producer] Barbara Broccoli said that it’s a 15-year commitment.”
He also clarified, “It’s sort of irrelevant how I feel about it, anyway, because I can tell you there have been zero phone calls.”
Earlier this month, Idris revealed if he’s been approached to play the next James Bond.
