Robert Pattinson has been tipped to play the next James Bond — by the one and only Daniel Craig.
According to a new report, Daniel — who’s played the suave British spy for three movies, the most recent being Skyfall — apparently told Twilight star Rob that he’d like him to be his replacement.
“Daniel told Rob he’d make a brilliant Bond and would like to see a young talented British actor take on the role,” a source said.
”Daniel’s signed on for two more Bond movies but is convinced he’ll do no more — for one thing, he hopes to start a family with Rachel soon and wants to focus on that.
“Rob’s a monumental fan of Daniel’s and told him so, but he was completely taken aback when the compliments were returned.
“Daniel really admires how Robert has handled the intense scrutiny of his personal life — he and Rachel are obsessively private.
“He really felt for Rob when Kristen Stewart’s cheating played out in the media. To go through that, but also maintain a level of professionalism and carry on working, shows amazing strength of character.”
