"Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."
However, Hiddleston being offered the position remains to be seen. Most memorable as Loki, Thor's fiendish brother in The Avengers movies, Tom Hiddleston may need to prove himself first in order to earn or deserve the gorgeous paycheck that Daniel Craig has turned down. It seems that Hiddleston's role in the BBC TV series, The Night Manager serves as his "passport" to becoming the new 007.
Was "Loki's" avid dancing with singer Taylor Swift during the Met Gala any help in getting Tom's foot on James Bond's door? After all, dancing is one of the skills required of a British Intelligence spy. But, it would be more traditional dances like the tango or cha-cha that would be asked for in a James Bond resume. Maybe rock and roll or modern dancing will help update the 007 screen personality to the millennials' more contemporary taste.
While on the subject, perhaps it's not a bad idea to nominate Taylor Swift as the new Bond Girl? She did show great potential in her music video "Bad Blood," don't you think? Her moves are eerily similar to Halle Berry. Plus, Taylor Swift's short role, yet luminous presence in the futuristic movie The Giver should be enough to demonstrate her acting prowess.
An added credit to Taylor would have to be her wonderful chemistry with Tom Hiddleston during the Met Gala dance marathon — and we already have the building blocks of a new James Bond casting ready to roll. Is it time to say "goodbye" to Daniel Craig, and "hello" to Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift? "Shake it Off" not stirred?
