Former One Direction singer Harry has been building his acting career slowly over the past few years. His big break came in 2018 hit Dunkirk which was directed by Christopher Nolan. Since then, the 27-year-old has been cast in a collection of films, including upcoming movies Don’t Worry Darling and My Policeman. He may be going up against fellow 1D star Liam in an upcoming race to become the next James Bond, however.

At the end of this year Daniel Craig will be stepping down from the 007 role after his fifth movie, No Time To Die.

After 15 years, Craig’s exit will leave the legendary spy role open for a new actor.

The latest odds from Ladbrokes suggest the 1D boys are in the running to become Bond.

This news isn’t surprising considering Liam previously announced he has been looking for more acting work in recent years.

With that in mind, Ladbrokes have given Liam 500/1 to take over from Craig.

Harry has similarly high odds but is in a much better position than his former bandmate.

The Watermelon Sugar star has an impressive 50/1 to take over as Bond later this year.

The bookies’ Alex Apati commented: “If Bond chiefs are after a musician to replace Daniel Craig as 007, the latest odds suggest they’ll only be looking in one direction: Harry Styles’, with Liam Payne being a massive 500/1 shot.”

Liam then referenced his 1D pal Harry, saying: “I mean, hats off to anybody who does it because it’s a long process.

“I seem to get through to like the final five or final three people for every role and then not quite get it. Which is frustrating but, you know, that’s how it goes.”

He then revealed: “I’ve had a fair few auditions and I was lucky enough to get into the final five again for one audition that I got to meet Steven Spielberg [a couple of years ago] on my 25th birthday which was quite amazing. But it’s been fairly slow through the pandemic obviously.”

Liam’s 25th birthday was on August 29, 2018, so the director would have been looking for an actor to appear in his upcoming remake of Westside Story.

Unfortunately, he didn’t get the part. However, meeting Steven was a great honour for Liam, as he previously revealed he was inspired by one of the director’s movies growing up.

Speaking in another interview, Liam said: “I feel like when I was growing up I wanted to be an archaeologist at one point. I thought it was going to be a bit like Indiana Jones.

“But, it’s probably not like that every day is it? Like using a toothbrush to dig up old bones.”

Kendall Jenner Cheers On Sister Kylie As She Goes Head-To-Head With BF Devin Booker For Pop-A-Shot

Kendall Jenner proved her allegiance to her sister Kylie when she took on NBA star Devin Booker in an arcade basketball game.

Kylie Jenner[1], 23, certainly has a competitive streak, and she went head to head with her sister Kendall Jenner[2]‘s boyfriend Devin Booker[3] in an arcade basketball game. The trio hit the town for a night out[4] on April 8, and Kendall cheered on her little sis as she took on Devin in a game of pop-a-shot. The 25-year-old took to her IG story to share a clip of the pair throwing mini basketballs into the hoops, with Devin staying about 20 points ahead of Kylie.

The cosmetics mogul[7] rocked a cream tank top and beige sweatpants with white sneakers, while Kendall’s BF cut an equally casual figure in a white tee, black shorts, and beige slides. “Come on Ky,” Kendall captioned the video. Earlier in the evening, the trio hit up LA hot spot The Nice Guy, where Kylie nearly had a run in with her ex-boyfriend Tyga[8], 31! The “Taste” rapper was photographed outside the West Hollywood restaurant with his new girlfriend Camaryn Swanson, while the KarJenner sisters arrived separatley. Kylie and Tyga split back in 2017 after an on-again, off-again romance that spanned several years.

Meanwhile, things are heating up between Kendall and Devin[9]! The Phoenix Suns star recently left a flirty comment on an Instagram post, in which Kendall rocked a pink Rodarte dress[10] with a red floral pattern. “Very beautiful.. course,” he wrote. The pair were first linked in April 2020, and have kept their romance on the down-low, only being photographed together[11] on rare occasions, often for date nights at hotspots like Soho House, Nobu Malibu and the celebrity packed[12] Santa Monica Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi. They finally made their relationship Instagram official on Valentine’s Day[13], when they tagged one another in cute PDA photos[14] together.

Despite dating for nearly a year, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star isn’t putting a “label” on things, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY[15]. “Kendall and Devin are still not super serious,” the source said. “She travels a bunch for work but when she has time, she enjoys seeing him[16]. She has a lot fun with Devin and he makes her laugh! It just won’t be some big relationship that makes a baby.”
