Recently this B list actor threw his name out to take over a long running movie franchise.

That won’t happen.

He had some success on television, but everything he has touched movie wise has been box office poison.

Then of course there is his girlfriend and her mafia family he would be asked about in every interview.

Charlie Hunnam Says He Is ‘100 Percent’ Open to Playing James Bond: I Would Be ‘Flattered’

The name’s Hunnam. Charlie Hunnam.

While speaking to PEOPLE ahead of the release of his new film Jungleland, the 40-year-old actor opened up about future roles that he is interested in taking on and whether or not James Bond happens to be one of them.

Asked if he would ever be open to donning Bond’s tuxedo someday in the future, the Sons of Anarchy star says, “100 percent.”

“I would be so flattered and honored to be considered to play James Bond as an Englishman,” he adds. “But my intuition tells me that I shouldn’t be waiting for that phone call to come. I think there are many people ahead of me on that list.”

The actor characterized any rumors of him portraying the ever-popular spy as “external chatter,” adding it is sweet that fans want to see him take on the role that several other actors before him have — including the late Sean Connery.

“It’s very flattering sort of fan dialogue,” he says, before noting that there’s no truth to the rumors. “Nobody’s ever, on a professional level from within the industry, brought that up to me,” he explains. – Source:

Charlie Hunnam denies his dad was a ‘gangster’ – but says he had a ‘big reputation’ in Newcastle

Geordie actor Charlie Hunnam has revealed how his dad was one of Newcastle ’s hard men.

The Sons of Anarchy star, whose first job was in Byker Grove, has admitted his father Billy had a reputation as a tough character in the North East.

Charlie’s father died four years ago but the actor, who attended Newcastle’s Heaton Manor School, says he was respected in the villain community.

Charlie, who stars as a jungle explorer in the new Hollywood film The Lost City of Z, was commenting on the description of his father as a gangster on some internet sites.

He said in an interview with the Metro newspaper: “My father was a scrap metal merchant.

“They are tough old school men – very flashy guys, real characters – and there’s an aesthetic that goes with that.

“My father wore a diamond-encrusted Rolex, a massive diamond pinkie ring, and beautiful tailor-made suits, and he drove a Rolls Royce.

“So there is a perception they have that gangster aura about them.”

Charlie also spoke about the amount of money that changes hands in the scrap metal business.

“There’s also an element of having to self-police in the business because a lot of money changes hands and the very valuable commodity they are trading changes its integrity very quickly,” he said.

“My father had a big reputation in his home town Newcastle.

“He was well respected among the community of tough guys but certainly was never involved in any illegal business.”

Charlie’s big break in Byker Grove happened when he spotted drunkenly fooling about in a shoe shop with his brother. – Source:
