HOLLYWOOD – Ghostbusters and SNL star Leslie Jones could be the next 007, James Bond.
The name’s Jones, Leslie Jones! Yes, comedian and actor Leslie Jones could be the next James Bond. According to sources close to the franchise, producers are looking to update and diversify the British secret agent. Daniel Craig told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
I’ve been trying to get out of it for ages, and so I told them, why not ask Leslie Jones. At first they expressed bafflement but I convinced them. She’s funny, she’s tough and she put up with so much bullshit on twitter for Ghostbusters, she’s ready for anything.
However, Jones herself has remained silent about the possibility. Craig, however, sees that as positive.
She’s smart. She won’t tell anyone until it’s announced. The producers know this as well. They get so much free publicity by not saying who the new Bond is, they’ll string it along. I wouldn’t be surprised if no publication except for the Studio Exec prints this story.
