It’s time for Aaron Taylor-Johnson to get off the Bullet Train and take a seat in an Aston Martin now — he is rumoured to be the new successor to Daniel Craig’s James Bond, marking a major step up for him. The British actor is likely to play the coveted role and a casting announcement may arrive soon. The 33-year-old has been in Hollywood for a while and the 007 casting will not only change his career trajectory forever but also give his net worth a major boost.

Playing the MI6 spy is a dream role for many, and the list of potential candidates has been long since Daniel Craig stepped down. Craig was last seen playing the iconic role in No Time To Die (2021). The actor gained international fame by playing the fictional secret agent in five films. It was Irish actor Pierce Brosnan who passed on the baton of the historic role to Craig, who will now do the same. The top contenders who were rumoured to take on the role of the British spy included Henry Cavill, Idris Elba and James Norton.

As we await an official casting announcement, here’s a look at Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Hollywood journey so far. The actor has made a decent fortune with notable roles in big-budget projects. His personal life has also been the talk of the town, especially his marriage to director Sam Taylor-Johnson and their 24-year age gap.

Movies and TV shows starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Born in Buckinghamshire, the actor was fond of performing on stage and passionate about drama since his younger years. If you wondered how he pulled off the jaw-dropping air kicks in Kick-Ass (2010), you must know that at age six Johnson enrolled to study drama, tap, jazz dance, acrobatics and singing.

His film career took off with small roles in movies like The Apocalypse (2000), Tom and Thomas (2002), Shanghai Knights (2003), Dead Cool (2004) and more. He also played the iconic role of Robbie in Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging (2008), making him a teen heartthrob at the time of its release.

The actor’s breakout performance in Nowhere Boy (2009) directed by his now-wife Sam Taylor-Johnson eventually became a game changer for his career. It was a biopic on the life of The Beatles’ singer John Lennon.

In 2010, the actor starred in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass and showed off his impressive action-comedy skills. With 2012’s Anna Karenina, he showed more versatility as he took on the role of Count Alexei Vronsky. While the actor’s enigmatic portrayal of Vronsky received praise, it was his haunting performance in Nocturnal Animals (2016) that won him a Golden Globe.

Shifting his focus to mainstream roles, he then made his Marvel debut as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Other big-budget projects in his filmography are also Godzilla (2014) and Tenet (2020). In his most recent release — Bullet Train (2022), the actor hilariously played Tangerine, who is one-half of an assassin duo known as The Twins.

Taylor-Johnson seems like a good fit for 007. Despite Tangerine and James Bond being dissimilar in character, his expertise in action scenes sets him apart as a strong candidate. Given the actor’s commitment to following a rigorous workout and diet routine, he does fit perfectly for a role as demanding as Bond’s.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s acting credits also include UK television shows Talk to Me and Nearly Famous. He recently also starred in the Apple TV series Calls alongside Aubrey Plaza.

All about the next James Bond movie

Aaron Taylor-Johnson may become the third youngest actor to play the role of James Bond after George Lazenby and Sean Connery. Given the recent talks about Taylor-Johnson’s possibility of signing the offer this week, it’s safe to say that Bond 26 is currently in development. In September 2022, producer Barbara Broccoli told Variety that the next film is “going to be a couple of years off”, pointing to a 2025 release.

It is also yet to be confirmed whether actors Ralph Fiennes (M), Ben Whishaw (Q), and Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) will reprise their roles as Bond’s co-workers. Another major speculation doing the rounds has been the possibility of director Christopher Nolan coming on board. Fresh off the success of Oppenheimer, rumours suggested that he was in discussions to direct two Bond films in period settings.

After dodging the Bond casting questions last year, Aaron once again had a similar response in his recent interview with Rolling Stone UK. The actor simply responded saying, ” I can only really talk about the things I’m going to show and tell.”

Sparks flew between Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife Sam during the filming of  Nowhere Boy. The couple’s relationship instantly made the headlines due to their significant 24-year age gap. Aaron was eighteen when he was linked to the filmmaker who was fresh out of her divorce from Jay Jopling. The couple started dating after wrapping up the film when Aaron was 19 and Sam was 42. Turning a blind eye to the gossip around their relationship, the couple continued to stay strong.

In July 2010, after nearly a year of dating, they welcomed their first child, Wylda Rae. Two years later, the duo became parents to another daughter, Romy Hero Johnson. Nearly six months after welcoming their second daughter, Aaron and Sam tied the knot in a small ceremony in Somerset. Their blended family also includes Sam’s two daughters Jessie Phoenix Jopling and Angelica Mara Jopling whom she shares with her ex-husband.

The couple has addressed facing criticism for their age gap in several interviews and while talking to The Sunday Independent, Aaron described how their relationship works saying, “I’m an old soul and she’s a young soul.” On the professional front, Aaron and his wife also collaborated on REM’s Uberlin music video.

Brand endorsements and Calvin Klein ad

Earlier this year, the actor was announced as the new brand ambassador for Armani Beauty’s Acqua di Giò fragrance. French singer-songwriter Woodkid shot Taylor-Johnson’s impressive monochromatic campaign for the brand.

Last year, he also stripped down to flaunt his washboard abs in a Calvin Klein campaign that went viral as netizens thirsted over his ripped look. His brooding looks and strong physicality in these campaigns certainly make a good case for a potential Bond casting.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s net worth

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s net worth is reported to be USD 20 million and a majority of it comes from his movies. With upcoming projects like Marvel’s Kraven the Hunter, The Fall Guy and Nosferatu, it is expected to receive a major boost.

As for his James Bond role, if Aaron Taylor-Johnson does bag the project, it will come with a huge pay rise. Craig reportedly made USD 25 million for his final Bond film, No Time to Die. The actor’s salary for his debut James Bond film, Casino Royale, was reportedly USD 3.2 million.
