James Bond – Norton Now Odds On To Be Handed Licence To Kill
James Norton has become the new favourite to become the next Bond, with William Hill offering just 1/3 that he gets the gig. Aidan Turner is 7/4 second favourite and Tom Hiddleston 11/2.
“48 hrs ago James Norton was NOT even in the betting for who will become the next Bond, he has been backed from 66/1 and is now the current 1/3 favourite. We would be astonished if he is not on the shortlist,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “His good looks and public school background make him a perfect fit for Ian Fleming’s 007.”
