Miles Teller Finally Weighs in After His Grandmother Tweeted That He Should Be the Next James Bond

Miles Teller has had quite the successful year, with the release of Top Gun: Maverick, which dominated at the box office, as well as Spiderhead, which flew up the Netflix charts when it premiered last month. But recently, his grandmother advocated for him to take on another major role: James Bond.

A little over a week ago, Teller's grandma, Leona Flowers, made a tweet, where she said, “They’re looking for an actor to replace Daniel Craig for future 007 movies. I think my grandson, Miles Teller, has proven that he has everything they’re looking for—talent, looks, strength, worldwide appeal & oh, so cool. He can be that guy!! Wouldn’t he be great?”

Now, Teller has finally responded to his grandmother's tweet.

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Teller revealed that he wouldn't be opposed to taking on the role of 007.

When asked by Kevin Frazier if he would be interested in playing Bond, he said, “Yeah. I mean, yeah perfect.” He added, “I think we're actors, you know, so maybe you can mix it up a little bit.”

This is the first time Teller has spoken out on the news following his grandmother's tweet. After Flowers's original statement, some fans questioned if Teller should fill the role because he isn't British. But Flowers responded, “He studied acting which includes accents. He’d be great.” In a follow-up, she said, “I think our English friends would welcome him as 007. The folks in London loved him when he was just there with the premiere of Top Gun Maverick. He even charmed William & Kate.”

We'll be anxiously waiting to see who gets named as the next Bond.
