Billie Eilish Thinks Michael B. Jordan Should Play James Bond
After a year that has seen her scoop basically all of the Grammys, write the new Bond film theme, and bag a BRIT Award, all by February, it's probably a good idea to start listening to what Billie Eilish thinks. Well, that's if you aren't already.
Anyway, on this occasion, she reckons that she knows who should be the next person to slip into James Bond's famous tuxedo and heavily accessorised car, and that person is Michael B. Jordan.
As many of you will be aware, current Bond Daniel Craig is to step down after this next film, leaving the franchise needing a new face to fill the poster space.
Asked who her pick would be, Eilish responded: "I would say, honestly, Michael B. Jordan would kill that s***."
She also said that she'd love to hear the Californian attempt to take on a British accent along the way.
Hell, Pierce Brosnan is Irish and Sean Connery is Scottish, so why on earth not?
As for the Bond song Eilish recorded with her brother Finneas O'Connell, it has now been revealed the pair composed the track while in their bunks on a tour bus travelling the world.

Speaking to GQ magazine, Finneas explained: "We wrote 'No Time To Die' on a tour bus. Specifically, in the bunks of our tour bus.
"We were given the first 20 pages of the script. I guess that's up to the point when the song comes in during the movie, right? That's how all the Bond films open up.
"So we were able to read the first 20 pages, which was obviously incredible. It gave us such a good steer and such insight into where the song would fall, and the tone.
"It makes it easier than having to write the whole song based on the entire movie; or in fact none of the movie.
"So Billie and I wrote the song, recorded the demo, sent it to them and then we finished it in London with Hans Zimmer doing the orchestral arrangements and also Johnny Marr from The Smiths.
"I mean, James Bond? Hans Zimmer? Johnny Marr? Mind blowing."
Finneas also said the siblings have already started work on a new album together. He continued: "Put it this way: We have broken ground. We have the shovel. We have hit soil. And we've started digging. But it's only a very shallow grave at the moment."
Make of that what you will.
