Tom Hiddleston won't be next 007, says spy writer Forsyth
Tom Hiddleston is out of the running to be the next James Bond, according to spy thriller writer Frederick Forsyth.
The Night Manager actor had at one point been the bookmakers' favourite to succeed Daniel Craig as 007. But he has dropped to fourth in the race, behind Poldark's Aidan Turner, American Hustle's Jack Huston and Granchester's James Norton.
Now Forsyth claims that an anonymous source told him there was "no way" Hiddleston would ever be handed the role.
He told the Mail on Sunday: "I got a tip the other day which I'll share with you. I understand (Bond producer) Barbara Broccoli is absolutely no way going to pick Tom Hiddleston. No. Way."
