Film Fans Want ‘Transporter’ Star To Be New Bond

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Jason Statham has made a big splash in The Transporter movies and now film fans want to see how he’d fare as James Bond.

According to a new survey by Fandango.com movie ticketing website, 33 percent of film buffs say Statham is their No. 1 choice to play 007 in the next Bond film, Casino Royale.

Statham’s only real competition is Closer star Clive Owen, who gets 23 percent of the vote, while 22 percent want Hugh Jackman to be Bond.

  • 11 percent think Jude Law would be the best Bond.

  • 10 percent say Ewan McGregor is their top choice.

  • Finally, Daniel Craig, who is reportedly the frontrunner with producers, isn’t much of an audience favorite: He only gets one percent of the vote.
