Next Bond market is stirring!
Bookmakers William Hill have been forced to slash the price of Damian Lewis becoming the next James Bond from 33/1, just a fortnight ago, to 5/1 second favourite. "The huge success of Homeland has propelled Damian Lewis into the running to replace Daniel Craig as Britain's most famous spy. He ticks a lot of boxes and this gamble could have some real substance," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Other contenders include the favourite Sam Worthington at 3/1, Michael Fassbender at 7/1 and Christian Bale at 8/1.
