Since he began acting professionally more than ten years ago, Miles Teller has delivered outstanding performances in films including Whiplash by Damien Chazelle, the Vinny Pazienza boxing biographical Bleed for This, and Thank You for Your Service. Following lackluster franchise outings in The Divergent Series and 2015’s Fantastic Four reboot.
Recently, Miles Teller made an appearance in the eagerly anticipated Top Gun sequel, which is now the second-highest-grossing movie of the pandemic period. And now, as the hunt for Daniel Craig’s successor goes on, his grandmother believes the Top Gun: Maverick star should be taken into consideration for the position of the next James Bond.
Miles Teller should be the next James Bond – Leona Flowers
Miles Teller’s grandmother wants him to take over as the next James Bond! In a recent Twitter campaign, Leona Flowers urged the 35-year-old actor to succeed Daniel Craig as the new 007.
“They’re looking for an actor to replace Daniel Craig for future 007 movies,” she tweeted Wednesday. “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?”
Plenty of folks on Twitter seem to agree with Flowers’ assessment, as her tweet has almost 5,000+ likes so far. Most of the comments have been supportive of the idea. However, some people tweeted that Teller, 35, could not play the part because the “Top Gun: Maverick” star is American and not British, but Flowers held strong on the matter.
“He could make you think he was [from Great Britain]” she wrote, adding, “And lots of Europeans have played Americans. He studied acting which includes accents. He’d be great.”
Fans do support the notion
Even though Miles Teller himself might be doubtful of his talents and achievements, his grandma and fans appear to have just the right amount of confidence in him. Soon after Leona Flowers tweeted her urge to see her grandson as the next James Bond, the internet flooded with mostly positive responses.
She has insight that you wouldn’t. bless your soul !

No doubt there are numerous stars who can take forward this legendary role in an iconic manner but Miles Teller wouldn’t be a wrong choice either. Keeping in mind his last performances we cannot deny the fact that he truly is a legitimate candidate to fight for the role.
