Jamie Bell 'joins race to be next James Bond'
He joins Tom Hiddleston, Aidan Turner, Idris Elba and Damian Lewis among the names in the frame to play 007.
Jamie, 30, has held informal chats with producers about replacing Daniel Craig when he steps down from the role, The Sun reported.
He shot to fame as the ballet dancing schoolboy in Billy Elliot and is in pre-production on Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool, the latest project of Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.
In the film he plays British actor Peter Turner, opposite Annette Bening and Julie Walters.

“Everyone remembers Jamie as the little boy in Billy Elliot, but he’s now bulked up and got some serious roles under his belt.
