After all the talk this week about Idris Elba potentially taking over the James Bond franchise, another under the radar candidate has quietly climbed the ranks as the potential new face of the franchise.
According to Variety, Irish betting site BoyleSports has been keeping track of the odds on different actors who could take over for Craig, and one candidate in particular has risen significantly in popularity. So who is this mystery man?
None other than Mad Max himself, Tom Hardy.
While Hardy's numbers have taken an impressive turn recently, rising from 6-1 odds to 4-1 odds (no doubt thanks to the success of "Fury Road"), fans of Elba shouldn't worry too much just yet. According to BoyleSports, Elba is still the frontrunner for the gig, tied with "Homeland" star Damian Lewis at 3-1 odds of becoming the new 007.
But a spokesman for betting site said that the market on »

Described by Garbarski as “a historical comedy, a comedy of life, more moving than humorous because it’s true”, Bye-Bye Germany (working title) reunites with the Cologne-based sales company after their previous collaboration on the Locarno 2013 title Vijay And I.

We Are Strong.) and Berlin-based, Turkish-born Tim Seyfi (‘Spiral’).

In June, a local news story about a New Jersey family forced to abandon their new home over chilling letters from a stalker who calls himself “The Watcher” made national headlines. It has now become an inspiration for a thriller TV drama project from former Homeland executive producer Alex Cary, producer Aaron Kaplan (Secrets & Lies, The Mysteries Of Laura) and Universal TV. Titled The Watcher, the project was bought preemptively by NBC. It marks the first sale under the o… »
Are we underestimating Damian Lewis to win an Emmy Award for the PBS limited series "Wolf Hall"? Don't forget, Lewis waged a surprise attack on awards pundits two years ago by winning the Best Drama Actor Emmy for the first season of "Homeland" over the frontrunner Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"). So, it wouldn't be a wise move to count Lewis out this time around with his bid for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor. -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions According to the rankings derived from predictions made by Gold Derby's Experts, Editors, Users and Top 24 Users (those who did the best at predicting last year's Emmys), Lewis is in third place to win the Emmy with odds of 12/1. Ahead of him are Bill Murray ("Olive Kitteridge") with leading odds of 4/7 and Finn Wittrock ("American Horror Story: Freak Show") at 5/1. The other »
Who will win the Emmy for Best Drama Guest Actor? While Gold Derby editors Marcus James Dixon and Rob Licuria are banking on frontrunner Beau Bridges ("Masters of Sex"), Riley Chow is going rogue with his prediction of Pablo Schreiber ("Orange is the New Black").

The con is on at Amazon.
The streaming service has given a series order to Sneaky Pete, a drama from EPs Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and David Shore (House) that stars Giovanni Ribisi as a man who hides from his debtors once he leaves prison — by assuming the identity of a cellmate.

Sneaky Pete was originally developed by CBS, but when the Eye network passed on it, Amazon stepped in and aired the pilot last month, »
A betting war is brewing across the pond for who will be the next James Bond. BoyleSports, an online bookmaker based in Ireland, has polled a new contender to take over the franchise, following Daniel Craig’s eventual departure.
The name is Hardy. Tom Hardy.
“The Next James Bond market has certainly come alive with all the support coming in for Tom Hardy, who is now 4/1 from 6/1 to take over from Daniel Craig,” said BoyleSports spokesman Liam Glynn in a statement.
The news is sure to leave Idris Elba fans shaken, not stirred. It follows Tuesday’s social-media outcry after 007 author Anthony Horowitz told the Daily Mail that Elba is “too street” to play the debonair English spy.
Elba is tied with former “Homeland” actor Damian Lewis as forerunner for the race with betting odds 3/1. Superman himself, “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill, also has substantial support, with BoyleSports slashing the odds at 4/1 — matching Hardy. »

With Daniel Craig indicating in an interview this week that the upcoming "Spectre" might be his final outing as James Bond, the betting over who his potential replacement might be has taken on new life.
Variety has spoken with Irish online bookmaker BoyleSports who has taken a poll regarding possible replacements and one name has moved up on the list - Tom Hardy.
Spokesman Liam Glynn says Hardy is now at 4/1 odds of taking over from Craig. That puts him equal second with current Superman Henry Cavill for the part. Cavill was in contention for the role in "Casino Royale" but was beaten by Craig, but this franchise has shown it has had a habit of hiring previously failed contenders for the role the next time around such as with Moore, Dalton and Brosnan.

“Tyrant’s” bid to win TV’s equivalent of “Most Improved Player” honors ultimately fell short, as the second season’s finishing kick slipped back into some of the quicksand that made the first disappointing. Interesting and provocative in its willingness to tackle the unsettled nature of the Middle East through the prism of a fictional country, the series completely transformed its protagonist but couldn’t effectively deal with why, after all he’s endured, he and his family wouldn’t just head home as fast as humanly possible. Nor did a cliffhanger ending do much to stoke enthusiasm for a return engagement.
The stilted dynamics of the central family were clearly the weakest part of season one, in which U.S. pediatrician Barry Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) returned to his homeland of Abbudin to attend the wedding of his nephew. Once there, all hell broke loose, as Barry’s strongman father died suddenly, »

Claire Danes has a new “Homeland” underling — and she’ll probably want to keep an eye on this one. The Showtime drama just locked recurring “Suits” actor Max Beesley for one episode. He’ll play Mike Brown, an ex-Royal Marine turned private military contractor. Brown is described as smart, but he is not entirely comfortable working under Carrie Mathison (Danes). Beesley is best known for a variety of roles on British TV including “Hotel Babylon,” “Mad Dogs,” “Ordinary Lies” and “Survivors.” Film-wise, he was a co-lead with Mariah Carey in “Glitter,” and could also be seen in “The Emperor’s Wife” and “Pawn. »
