Daniel Craig Says 1D's Niall Horan Would Be 'Fabulous' As James Bond

Regardless of the fact that he's the fourth (former fifth) most badass member of One Direction, Niall Horan's name was recently tossed into the old “Who will be the next James Bond?” conversation.

In an interview with Capital FM, current Bond, Daniel Craig, was asked if the boy bander would be a good fit as his successor. The actor replied he believes Horan is a “good man” who would be “absolutely fabulous” as the sexy British spy of legend.

Once One Direction begins their hiatus, Niall will have lots of downtime to film an action movie, but perhaps he would be better suited to play something a bit closer to his own persona, like the lead in a Kenny Loggins biopic.

Of course, One Direction fans on Twitter are going crazy for the concept with #NiallForBond.

Not to stir up controversy among the #NFB crowd, but my vote still goes to Idris Elba.
