The Live with Kelly and Ryan host teased his followers with a now-deleted, smoldering image of himself looking every inch 007.

Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page is a frontrunner and Venom's Tom Hardy is also being teased. Fans are placing bets on McMafia actor, James Norton, and Superman star, Henry Cavil, too. 

Outlander's Sam Heughan once revealed he actually auditioned for Bond. It was on an appearance on Kelly's show when he admitted: "I did audition for Bond a long time ago when they were redoing it with Daniel Craig, when he was Bond 21.

"They were going to go younger with him and it was a pretty good experience," he added. "And it’s about time we got a Scottish Bond."
