Next James Bond: Colin Salmon Backed In To Contention

Jack Huston and James Norton are the 2/1 joint favourites to be named as the next James Bond, however Colin Salmon has moved into contention having been backed in from 66/1 to 10/1 over the course of the last 24 hours according to William Hill.


“There has been a lot of talk suggesting that the next Bond could be black and with that in mind, Idris Elba has been a long time favourite, although the last 24 hours have seen Colin Salmon move up towards the top of the betting and he is now the same price as Mr Elba,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Next James Bond: 2/1 Jack Huston; 2/1 James Norton; 3/1 Aidan Turner; 6/1 Tom Hiddleston; 10/1 Colin Salmon; 10/1 Idris Elba; 12/1 Tom Hardy; 14/1 Damian Lewis; 25/1 BAR
