Paddy Power have slashed the price on Ryan Gosling being the next James Bond after his success in La La Land – unless the we’ve have opened the wrong envelope.
Yep, we went there…
After his much-lauded role in the Hollywood musical of the year, Gosling has emerged as a 9/1 front-runner to be the next Bond, leapfrogging contenders such as Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill and Damian Lewis.
Just weeks ago, he was seen as a 33/1 long-shot, but now has tap-danced his way into contention.
Asked about the update to the Bond market spokesman Paddy Power said: “So the Gos is that Ryan’s in the Drive-r’s seat to be the next Bond.
“I’m not sure how you go from musical to muscle, but Gosling’s definitely got the track-record when it comes to one crucial Bond element – the suave sex appeal. At least that’s what Mrs P says. Honest.”
