He had one of the biggest movie roles of 2018, and he might be landing another one in 2020.
While movie bosses are working on the currently untitled Bond 25 starring Daniel Craig, Variety claims that Rami is first on the list.
Insiders have said that Rami was already sparking interest from the casting crew for his work on TV drama Mr Robot, but his schedule for the last season "made it unlikely" he would get the gig. We can only keep our fingers crossed that they make it work.
Rami is tipped to receive an Oscar nomination for playing Freddie Mercury, and is already up for a Golden Globe.
The next Bond movie starts shooting in the spring, and hits cinemas on February 14, 2020.
