Gruffudd Leads Bond Race

Welsh actor IOAN GRUFFUDD is leading the way to play the next JAMES BOND - ahead of EWAN McGREGOR and HUGH JACKMAN.

The KING ARTHUR star is said to possess "all the credentials" to take over from PIERCE BROSNAN as the next 007 in the secret spy films.

A source says, "Ioan is the only actor being considered as the next Bond at the moment. He has all the credentials to play Bond and, unlike most of the other candidates mentioned, he's relatively unknown.

"The producers know Ioan is going to be a big star with or without Bond. It's just a matter of whether he wants to take on such a huge role and the early indications are that he does."
