AceShowbiz - Harris Dickinson is 'always ready' for playing James Bond. The "Triangle of Sadness" actor has been reported as a potential replacement for Daniel Craig as 007 and revealed that he is open to playing the famous spy on the big screen.
"One of my friends called me the other day and was like, 'Mate, are you Bond?' I'm always ready," Harris told the i newspaper. "I would welcome the opportunity. I think it can be a wonderful role and I love what Daniel Craig did with it."
The 26-year-old actor said, "When I'm embarking on bigger (blockbuster) films, I used to think there was a way to make those films just as intimately. But there isn't. You have to be prepared for something much larger and much less personal."
"Triangle of Sadness" is the latest comedic film that Harris has featured in and the star feels at home in the genre. He said, "I find comedy natural. I'm not saying I'm funny - I'm saying I'm silly. I started in comedy when I was a kid, doing impressions for family members. Comedy was the way to engage people."
Ruben Ostlund's movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and Dickinson found it surreal to be on the red carpet. He explained, "I have this thing with red carpet premieres, where I go into shock. I seem very calm, but I'm not. I think my way of coping is like, 'None of this is real, or this is just a simulation, what I'm going through right now.' Otherwise, I feel like I would be out of control."
