Jimmy Buffett Cast as Next James Bond

April 1st, 2023

With Daniel Craig finishing his role as 007 in 2021’s No Time to Die, much speculation has been swirling as to who will portray the suave MI6 agent James Bond in future films.

The wait is over. Eon Productions announced this morning that singer Jimmy Buffett will take over the role beginning in 2025 with The Spy Who Got Drunk and Screwed Me.

The choice of Buffett is a dramatic departure for Eon and the James Bond Franchise, especially considering the fact that Buffett is an American, born in Pascagoula, Mississippi.

Producer Barbara Broccoli said of the choice: “after the massive success of Daniel Craig as Bond, we felt that choosing another young, handsome Brit to play everyone’s favorite secret agent would be too cliche. Jimmy Buffett is the perfect choice to disrupt the James Bond universe.”

While known primarily for his 50+ year career as a singer, Buffett is no stranger to the screen. He’s made multiple appearances on the television show Hawaii Five-O as well as a recent guest slot on Blue Bloods. Cameo appearances were also made in the 1995 film Congo and in 2015’s Jurassic World where he’s seen saving margaritas in the midst of a dinosaur attack.

The 76-year-old singer is expected to do many of his own stunts, from piloting airplanes to surfing and snowboarding.

Not everyone is on board with choice of Buffett. One person confused by the selection is British actor Idris Elba, who was seen as a leading candidate to take over the role. When reached for comment, Elba said “really?”

Buffett is expected to portray Bond in at least three films. Titles being discussed include From Margaritaville with Love, Goldfins, The Fruitcake is Not Enough, License to Chill and Octogenarianpussy.
