Since starting acting professionally over a decade ago, Miles Teller has had outstanding performances in films including Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash, the boxing biography Vinny Pazienza Bleed for This and Thank You for Your Service. After mediocre franchise forays in The Divergent Series and the Fantastic Four reboot from 2015.
Recently, Miles Teller appeared in the highly anticipated Top Gun sequel, which is now the second highest-grossing film of the pandemic period. And now, as the hunt for Daniel Craig’s successor continues, his grandmother feels the Top Gun: Maverick star should be considered for the position of the next James Bond.
Miles Teller should be the next James Bond – Leona Flowers
Miles Teller’s grandmother wants him to take on the role of the next James Bond! In a recent Twitter campaign, Leona Flowers urged the 35-year-old actor to succeed Daniel Craig as the new 007.
“They are looking for an actor to replace Daniel Craig for future 007 films,” she tweeted on Wednesday. “I think my grandson, Miles Teller, has proved that he has everything they look for – talent, looks, strength, global appeal and oh, so cool. He could be that guy!! Wouldn’t he be great?”
Many people on Twitter seem to agree with Flowers’ assessment as her tweet has nearly 5,000+ likes so far. Most comments support the idea. However, some people tweeted that Teller, 35, couldn’t play the part because the… “Top Gun: Maverick” star is American and not British, but Flowers kept a strong hold on this matter.
“He Might Make You Think He Was” [from Great Britain]† she wrote, adding, “And many Europeans have played Americans. He studied acting which includes accents. He would be great.”
Fans support the idea
While Miles Teller himself may have doubts about his talents and achievements, his grandmother and fans seem to have just enough confidence in him. Shortly after Leona Flowers tweeted her urge to see her grandson as the next James Bond, the internet was flooded with mostly positive reactions.
She has an understanding that you wouldn’t. bless your soul!
