From Kick-Ass to 007: Why Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the Ideal James Bond

Aaron Taylor-Johnson as James Bond 007

Are you ready for the ultimate pitch on why Aaron Taylor-Johnson should be the next James Bond? Buckle up, because we're about to make a case for the actor who has proven time and time again that he has the charm, wit, and rugged good looks to embody the iconic 007.

First of all, you can't talk Bond without talking about sex appeal. When it comes to 007, women want him and men want to be him. I think you get that with Aaron. Let's talk about the physical requirements of Bond. The man needs to be able to throw a punch and look good doing it. Taylor-Johnson has already proven his action star chops in films like "Kick-Ass" and "Nocturnal Animals," so we know he can handle the physical demands of the role. Plus, have you seen those biceps? They're practically begging for a tailored tuxedo jacket to drape over them.

But Bond isn't just about brawn, he also needs to have charm and charisma to spare. Taylor-Johnson has that in spades. Just watch any of his interviews or red carpet appearances and try not to fall for his boyish good looks and quick wit. Plus, he's proven that he can pull off suave and sophisticated when the role calls for it, as seen in his portrayal of John Lennon in "Nowhere Boy."

And let's not forget about the all-important Bond sense of humor. Taylor-Johnson has a knack for delivering quips with just the right amount of dry wit, as evidenced by his turn as Quicksilver in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plus, we could all use a little more levity in the world of Bond, and Taylor-Johnson seems like just the man to bring it. We saw him bring this forward in Bullet Train as well.

The role I really look towards though is that of George in the 2020 film "Tenet," directed by Christopher Nolan. In the film, Taylor-Johnson's character is a member of a secret organization that uses time-bending technology to prevent World War III.

As George, Taylor-Johnson brings a sense of calm and coolness to the role, expertly navigating the complex plot and action sequences. His character is a reliable ally to the protagonist, played by John David Washington, and the two have a strong chemistry on screen showing he can both share the screen and command it at the same time.

Overall, Taylor-Johnson's performance in "Tenet" showcases his range as an actor and solidifies him as a versatile leading man. It's just one more reason why he would make a great James Bond.

In conclusion, Aaron Taylor-Johnson has all the makings of a fantastic James Bond. He's got the action star skills, the charm and charisma, and a killer sense of humor. Plus, just imagine how great he would look in a tuxedo. Can we make it happen, Hollywood?
