We keep hearing rumors of actors in the running to replace Daniel Craig as 007, but those are some big blade concealed shoes to fill. Who can step up and pull off the perfect, “Bond, James Bond?” Here are our top five casting picks:

1.  Tom Hiddleston

Known For:  Thor, The Avengers, The Night Manager

He’s got the look and the cool factor down to rock Bond. We know he can pull off the perfect villain after playing Loki in Avengers so we know he’ll kill it as the hero spy. Tom is the favorite right now and probably will get the gig.

2.  Idris Elba

Known For:  Pacific Rim, Thor and Zootopia

He’s badass, already has the accent down and it’s about time an African-American got a shot at playing this iconic role. Idris would be amazing taking the action scenes to the next level while still keeping that cool 007 vibe.

3.  Michael Fassbender

Known For: X-Men, Steve Jobs and 12 Years a Slave

The acting from Michael is as good as it gets. Does he have the suaveness to play James Bond? We think so and based on the trailers for the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie, he’s got the action scenes on lock-down. Would he actually take the role? That’s the big question.

4.  Jamie Bell

Known For:  Billy Elliot, King Kong and Jumper

He’s young and could carry the franchise for many years to come. Does he have what it takes to pull of the action scenes? That’s the big question right now. He’s got the cool factor going for him and could be an exciting choice to play 007.

5.  Emilia Clarke

Known For: Game of Thrones, Terminator Genisys and Me Before You

GIRL POWER! Why not give Daenerys Targaryen a shot? We know she can handle three dragons so some evil super villains will be a breeze. Emilia has it all, cool, perfect Bond accent, badass and she's absolutely beautiful. Now, who should they cast as Bond Boys?
