‘Peaky Blinders’ Movie May Fulfill Cillian Murphy’s Dream Role

Key Points: 

  • Cillian Murphy’s role as Tommy Shelby in the Peaky Blinders movie could be his closest experience to playing James Bond
  • The movie allows Murphy to portray an action star with a complex character, similar to the 007 experience
  • Although he likely won’t play Bond, Murphy could still join the franchise in a recurring role like M or a villain

With the confirmation of a Peaky Blinders movie and Cillian Murphy reprising his iconic role as Tommy Shelby, the actor may finally get his chance to experience a dream role akin to James Bond. Despite speculation about Murphy potentially taking on the mantle of 007, his portrayal of the cunning and action-packed Tommy Shelby could be the closest he gets to the spy thriller experience.

While Cillian Murphy may never officially portray the iconic British spy, the Peaky Blinders movie offers him a similar opportunity. Writer Steven Knight has compared the film’s scale and tone to a James Bond movie, suggesting parallels between the two characters.

Murphy’s role as Tommy Shelby allows him to embody an action-star protagonist with a complex and layered character, much like 007. The movie’s cinematic format promises explosive stunts and high-stakes adventures, mirroring the Bond experience.

Despite many fans calling for Murphy to be the next James Bond, the odds of him actually landing the role seem slim. With Daniel Craig’s 15-year tenure as 007 coming to an end, reports suggest Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the frontrunner for the coveted role.

At 47 years old, Murphy’s window for playing Bond may have already closed. However, his past performances and charm have convinced audiences that he would have been an excellent choice for the iconic spy.

While Murphy is unlikely to play James Bond himself, the Peaky Blinders movie may not be the only opportunity for him to be involved in the spy franchise. The Bond films feature numerous recurring characters, such as Q, M, and various villains, all of which could be recast for future installments.

Murphy’s acting talents could make him an ideal fit for roles like a mentor figure (M), a tech-savvy ally (Q), or even a compelling antagonist to challenge the new 007. While not the lead, these roles would allow Murphy to leave his mark on the iconic franchise.

The Peaky Blinders movie does not have an official release date yet.
