British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been «officially offered the opportunity to play James Bond,» putting an end to months of speculation about Daniel Craig’s successor.

The 33-year-old actor has not officially accepted the role yet, but if he does, he will become the seventh actor to portray the iconic British secret agent since the franchise launched in 1962.

A recent poll showed that Idris Elba remains the number one candidate for the role, despite being 51 years old (a bit old for a Bond candidate) and having already turned it down to focus on his crime drama «Luther.»

According to a source, «Bond is Aaron’s job if he wants it.» The official offer is under consideration, and they are waiting for a response.
