Ryan Reynolds Says He'd Be The Next James Bond If People Would Let A Canadian Play The Role

Ryan Reynolds says he would be the next 007 if people will let a Canadian play James Bond instead of a Brit.

In an article by The Times on November 19, the Canadian actor talked about parenthood, anxiety, relaxation and even possibly taking on the role of the iconic British secret agent.

"I hear they're looking for a new Bond," Reynolds said. "Could you accept a Canadian sipping gin and tonic instead of a martini? If so, I'm interested."

In October, Reynolds revealed that he's taking a sabbatical from making movies but didn't mention when he'd go back to films.

He also explained why he is going on a little break, and it's not so he can travel, study or finish up a side project. He's taking time off to parent his three kids.

So, it might be a while before we could possibly see the Canadian actor sipping on a gin and tonic as James Bond.

Ryan Reynolds never shies away from supporting his "home of B.C.", and all the people within it. Sometimes this means trolling his hometown to no end, but other times it's just straight-up sweet.

In November, he tweeted a message of support, calling for people to donate to help the province recover from the extreme weather and flooding it has been facing.
