Niall Horan The Next 'James Bond' As Shawn Mendes, Cody Simpson Want Collaborations

There have been rumors that Niall Horan will quit the music business to start a golfing agency, but there are still plenty of fans in the celebrity business that want Niall Horan to reconsider.

Topping the list, Niall Horan has been named by a former James Bond actor to be his replacement. Adding to this, the list of musicians that want to collaborate with Niall Horan has been growing and now includes Shawn Mendes and Cody Simpson.

Regardless, Niall Horan is simply taking time for himself, and photographs posted by Unreality TV from his recent trip to Australia show him at ease. On the other hand, the Mirror says that Niall Horan does not look refreshed, but instead looks "10-years older" due to his new spectacles and hairdo.

Alternatively, as previously reported by The Inquisitr, the reason he appears to be relaxed is not because Niall Horan is dating Australian actress, Olympia Valance.

About hanging out with Olympia Valance at the Australian Open, the Mirror says Niall Horan attended with her, "her mother Tania Gogos-Wilson and Aussie model Elyse Taylor in a private box at the tournament, where he's been a guest of airline Emirates."

Nevertheless, Niall Horan and sports are rarely separated for very long, and there were rumors that he wanted to make golfing a bigger part of his life by opening an agency. No doubt, Niall Horan's celebrity golfing buddy, Rory McIlroy, delighted at this news, and The Sun states the following.
"[Niall] Horan and Mark McDonnell, a former TaylorMade account manager, will run Modest Golf Management. Modest is the company that currently manages One Direction. Modest Golf Management will search for British and Irish golfers as their clientele base."
About the James Bond role, Daniel Craig (and former James Bond) told an interviewer in October 2015 that Niall Horan would be a perfect replacement in the ongoing series of movies, according to a February 3 report from Marie Claire.

In addition to becoming an actor when his One Direction break is in effect, fans and other musicians also want to see collaborations in Niall Horan's future. For instance, Cody Simpson was highlighted by the Daily Mail in mid-January as possibly already having leaked a collaboration with Niall Horan.

Allegedly, on Cody Simpson's social media, he posted a video and "While Cody made no mention of One Direction's Niall Horan in his post, fans wasted no time in point out that the British pop-star's voice can be heard in the recording."

Just Jared also says that Shawn Mendes wants Niall Horan to hook up with him in the studio -- and so does Niall. When Shawn Mendes was interviewed by Capital FM, he spoke about meeting Niall Horan in America and stated the following.

"I met him in America once and then he actually reached out to me over Twitter and so I got to talk to him a little bit … He seems really cool, really genuine. [Shawn told Niall] Give me a text if you're ever interested in writing or whatever.' If we can figure out a time and place, definitely."
Unfortunately, if Niall Horan does get involved with doing more music, it may give an opportunity for other musical talent to copy his style. For example, Jedward was recently shaded by Gossie because they feel their current hairstyle is too similar to Niall Horan.

Sadly, all of this means that Niall Horan may never see his brother again. The Metro reported in mid-January that Niall Horan's brother, Greg Horan, was complaining on social media that he had not seen his own brother in an extended period of time.
