Move aside, Elba. Sit down, Hiddleston. There’s only one man that should play James Bond. And the name’s Eubank. Chris Eubank.
That’s according to a new petition calling for the former WBO middleweight champion with a distinctive voice to replace Daniel Craig as 007.
“Chris Eubank is not only a national treasure but also one who has seen action for most of his life, and his larger-than-life personality would be perfect as the next James Bond,” says the petition titled “Cast Chris Eubank Snr as the next James Bond”.
Why have over 600 people signed it? Well, like all James Bonds, it probably stems from Eubank’s appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox. The former boxer is enjoying a resurgence in popularity after his performance on the C4 show, which included asking his son what a Ryvita is and dancing to the Love Island theme song.
