Tom Hiddleston is in “advanced talks” to take on the role of 007

According to the source, after watching his performance in High-Rise and The Night Manager, the prospect of him being Bond isn't bad at all. It’s also worth noting that if cast, Hiddleston would be the first Bond actor who shares an educational background with both the literary 007 and Ian Fleming himself: all three attended Eton College in their respective youths.
