There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the next “James Bond” movie. Who will play the role? Well, Sam Heughan is definitely up for it and he’s really very vocal about it!

Heughan, the star of Starz’s “Outlander.” took to Twitter to express how he would like to play the role of James Bond in the next movie. He tweeted, “Excited for new #JamesBond Film #SPECTRE Grown up with him. I know this Bond. #ImReadyToTakeOverWhenYouAreDaniel.”

Of course, his Twitter followers went wild upon seeing his tweet! Fans have expressed their support saying that they would love to see Heughan as James Bond. In fact, another fan even created an edited posted of James Bond with Heughan’s face on it. There are others who are actually already rooting for him to play the role!

With the influx of support from his fans, he took to his Twitter account again to share his favorite Bond, “I loved Connery. But Dalton was also a fav. #SPECTRE.”

Even Diana Gabaldon, the author of the book series where “Outlander” is based from jumped in to show support.

Some fans didn’t miss the chance to remind him of his current responsibility with “Outlander,” though.

Can he be Bond and be Jamie Fraser in “Outlander” at the same time? Well, this hunk actor is busy with the production of “Outlander” Season 2. He is currently in Scotland, filming.

Can you picture Sam Heughan as James Bond? Or would you rather seem him as Jamie Fraser? Well, either way, I think he would do great in both! Let us know by posting your comments below!
