It looks like Aidan Turner should be getting ready for a new role. The "Poldark" Season 3 actor has reportedly been meeting with James Bond producers on the possibility of replacing Daniel Craig as 007. Does this mean that Craig has ultimately decided to leave the iconic role behind? Will Turner star as the British spy in "James Bond 25"?

Aidan Turner has long been a fan favorite to take on the role of 007 in case Daniel Craig decided to leave the franchise. After all, the "Poldark" Season 3 star has repeatedly proven that he has the charm and acting chops to play the sexy British spy. But is it possible that "James Bond 25" producers have listened to what thousands of fans have been saying for a long time? Has Turner been called in for a meeting to become James Bond?

According to Newsweek, Aidan Turner flew out to Los Angeles for a meeting with long-time James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Although it was unclear whether the "Poldark" Season 3 star was called in to discuss the possibility of being the next 007, fans have been supporting Turner in hopes he will replace Daniel Craig in "James Bond 25". The "Hobbit" actor's odds have steadily been getting better in the past week.

Aidan Turner is hardly the only actor up for the role of James Bond in the future films. After all, Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and even Tom Hiddleston are just a few names that are being raised by bookies. Hardy might be the current top choice following his recent heroism in Richmond, London (via CeleBeat) but the "Poldark" Season 3 star is still a close second. There is a possibility that Turner's odds will get even better when "Poldark" Series 3 finally premieres on BBC this June.
