Recently Tom Hiddleston spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and discussed the rumors of being the next “Bond”, and more.:

On the rumors of the next James Bond: “It is a national obsession to talk about who should be the next James Bond. Everyone has an opinion about it basically. My belief is that Daniel Craig will do many, many more. As far as I’m concerned, he is James Bond. After a pause, Hiddleston adds, “But I should just take the compliment and smile and shrug.”

On how Bond is similar to The Night Manager‘s Jonathan Pine: “I actually think that there’s a lot that divides them. Bond is a trained killer with a 00 license to kill, and Pine is at the beginning of his relationship with the Secret Service. I think in Daniel Craig’s incarnation, Bond has become much darker, more haunted by his responsibilities in a way. I think Pine has always had that.”

On doing nudity in film: “I’ve come from the tradition of European film, where nudity isn’t really something. I’ve seen many other more esteemed actors be infinitely more naked than me. I just don’t think twice about it. It was important for the scene and no more or less significant than any of the other scenes in the story.”
