BREAKING: We've suspended betting on Tom Hiddleston being the next James Bond after a flurry of bets! pic.twitter.com/IGMjBCgwzX— Coral (@Coral) 15 May 2016
- Coral's spokeswoman issued this statement: "There is no smoke without fire, and following the big gamble on Tom Hiddleston in the last 24 hours, we've had no choice but to pull the plug on the market. Earlier in the year there was a gamble on Idris Elba and Damian Lewis, but nothing has come close to the recent gamble on Hiddleston".
- He was spotted meeting with Bond director Sam Mendes and producer Barbara Broccoli (great name btw) in London last week, allegedly.
- Odds before betting was suspended: Tom Hiddleston from 2-1 to 1-2 overnight; Aidan Turner 3-1; Tom Hardy 4-1; Idris Elba 9-1; Damian Lewis 14-1; Michael Fassbender 14-1; Henry Cavill 20-1; none of the above 50-1.
