Since the exit of Daniel Craig, it has yet to be announced who will be the next “James Bond.” A couple of names have been mentioned, particularly Idris Elba and Tom Hardy. However, nothing has been made official as of this writing.

The search continues although there are certain factors to consider. It appears that the next 007 will not be a young actor, something that producer Michael G. Wilson explained, Deadline reported.

“We’ve tried looking at younger people in the past,” Wilson said at a Bond event at the British Film Institute. “But trying to visualize it doesn’t work.”

For reference, Craig was 38 years old when he took over as James Bond from Pierce Brosnan. He appeared in four 007 films.

“Remember, Bond’s already a veteran,” Wilson said. “He’s had some experience. He’s a person who has been through the wars, so to speak. He’s probably been in the SAS or something. He isn’t some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off. That’s why it works for a thirty-something.”

With the numbers game in consideration, this could cross out Elba and Hardy. The former is already 50 years old while the latter is 45.

The oldest one to play James Bond was Roger Moore, who was 58 years old when he appeared in “A View To A Kill.”

The late Sean Connery, another long-time James Bond actor, ended his run with “Never Say Never Again.” He was 53 years old at the time.

Brosnan was asked who he feels should be the next James Bond but quipped he didn’t care who would be the next one to portray the British spy, GQ Magazine reported.

“It’ll be interesting to see who they get, who the man shall be,” he continued. “Whoever he be, I wish him well.”

Whoever is selected to be the next James Bond, it appears producers are looking for someone in his 30s.
