Skyfall singer Adele backs Jonathan Majors to be next James Bond

It seems that the transfer window for James Bond is still open as yet another name is being linked to the iconic 007 role.

The one and only Adele, who landed an Oscar for 'Best Original Song for a Motion Picture' for 2012's Skyfall, has weighed in on the topic, offering her opinion on who should take over as the iconic spy.

In a previous interview with Vogue, Adele spoke about her role in the film: "Well I was heavily pregnant actually when I did the vocals for Skyfall. And it’s the song that I recorded while I was pregnant with him. So my voice was a lot lower and he also hated when I was singing the high notes. He’d sort of kick around inside of me."

When asked who her pick for the next James Bond would be, the singer replied: "I mean it’s a tough one. There’s been lots of different choices and stuff. But I would like Jonathan Majors to be the next Bond. But I don’t know if that’s allowed because he’s American."

Majors' impressive role as Atticus Freeman in HBO’s Lovecraft Country has certainly been well received.

The show is about is about a young Black man who travels across the segregated United States in the 1950s in search of his missing father.

Freeman is a Korean war vet who always wears his heart on his sleeve despite the many injustices that come his way.

And it seems Adele isn't the only one calling for Majors to play 007.

"I hope Jonathan Majors is in conversation to play James Bond honestly," one person tweeted.

Someone else thought: "I’ve already decided the next James bond HAS to be idris. I will also accept Jonathan majors."

"Jonathan Majors can play James Bond. Argue amongst yourselves," a third person said.

Another added: "If James Bond were to go younger, Jonathan Majors would make a good one."

It seems Bond boss Michael J Wilson has had also his say, telling Deadline: "Remember, Bond's already a veteran, he's had some experience.

"He's a person who has been through the wars, so to speak.

"He's probably been in the SAS or something, he isn't some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off - that's why it works for a 30-something."
