Cillian Murphy is an Irish actor who has an impressive resume despite being pretty unknown. You might know Murphy from Inception, Batman Begins or the bingeable Netflix show Peaky Blinders. He was also nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in Breakfast on Pluto.
Now Murphy is rumored to be the next James Bond. Murphy is up against some serious competition with Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy and Richard Madden all in talks to play the next 007 after Daniel Craig.
Murphy is no stranger to playing a leading man and could be successful as the new Bond. He would be the second Irish actor to play the British secret agent. Pierce Bronson, who played Bond for 11-years and many say is the best Bond, is Irish.
Before Murphy became an actor he was a musician. He sang and played guitar in many bands before turning his focus to acting.
Murphy is pretty quiet about his personal life and doesn’t like the fame that comes along with his acting career. He doesn’t have any social media handles and rarely does TV interviews. He doesn’t live in Hollywood and still lives in Ireland even after all these years in the movie business.
