Who will be the next James Bond? We’ve been having this conversation for years now, but it really does feel like an answer is imminent.

Daniel Craig definitively ended his run as 007 last fall in No Time To Die, and has since moved on to play a well-dressed sleuth in another franchise, in addition to a recently announced very gay role that we’re pretty thrilled about.

And that leaves us with a tux to fill—who will take up the mantle from here?

Names bandied about include everyone from jack-of-all-trades Idris Elba to Bridgerton heartthrob Jonathan Bailey to Henry Cavill, who, now that you mention it, certainly has the time for it. Basically every handsome British actor you can think of is in the running.

But if there’s one name that’s got us here at Queerty most excited, it’s hunky gay actor Luke Evans.
