Jude Law is reported to be a strong contender to play James Bond after saying he was keen on the role.
Bookmakers immediately slashed the odds on the Oscar-nominated actor succeeding Pierce Brosnan as 007.
Cold Mountain star Jude said: "I know my kids would love it. Who knows?"
Odds on Jude landing the part were cut from 25/1 to 7/1. But Australian actor Hugh Jackman is still favourite, with odds of 2/1 with William Hill.
Colin Farrell is priced at 7/2 and Orlando Bloom is 5/1, says The Sun.
