Harry Styles is the latest celebrity rumoured to be in the running for the iconic James Bond role. 

Spectre editor Lee Smith gave his opinion on the possible casting at the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards. 

"Harry could do it, if they wanted a younger Bond then why not? He has got it."

He went on to praise Harry's debut acting performance in last summer's Dunkirk.

 "You would never know that was his first film...Harry is really good.You would have thought you were dealing with a guy with many years of experience."

Lee Smith is also good friends with director Christopher Nolan who is rumoured to be joining the franchise. 

Despite angry comments following the release of Spectre, Daniel Craig will return to the Bond role one last time for the planned 2019 movie 'Bond 25'.

Idris Elba

Tom Hiddleston

James Norton

Tom Hardy
