Tom Hardy is reportedly being lined up to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

The Dark Knight Rises star is at the top of the list to take over from the Skyfall actor once his time as the fictional British spy comes to an end after his next two films.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Although Craig is signed up for the next two Bond films the search for his replacement is already on.

"Tom is right at the top of the wish list. He's been approached to gauge his interest and he's keen."

The 35-year-old actor has been described as "perfect Bond material" and he comes with a great reputation.

The source said: "He's a respected actor with a great catalog of films but most importantly he's the type of guy that all men want to be like and all women want to be with.

"He's perfect Bond material."

Hardy has previously expressed a keen interest to play the big screen secret agent, and the saga's bosses are determined to make the right decision by casting the right man in the iconic role.

The insider added: "The Bond franchise is getting more popular than ever.

"Getting the next Bond right is crucial to guarantee continued success and Hardy is seen as the man to do that."
