Outlander’s Sam Heughan Entertains Those James Bond Rumors


-Now, you are —
You’re from Scotland. Are you planning on spending
the holidays in Scotland? -I am, yeah. I’m going back
for Christmas and New Year. And we have a lot of
very Scottish traditions. We have Hogmanay, which I don’t
know if you know it. It’s New Year’s Eve. And basically,
it’s kind of a bigger — bigger celebration
than Christmas. -New Year’s Eve is?
-Yeah, yeah. We drink a lot of whiskey and —
Of course. -Yeah, of course. Yeah. -And invite ourselves
to other people’s houses. [ Laughter ] -You do?
-Yeah. -Like, what do you mean by that? -It’s called First Footing,
and it’s a tradition. But you basically
will go to someone’s house on New Year’s Day
and take some coal with you. I’m not sure why. I guess we’re, you know,
generous like that. -You give people coal?
-Yeah, yeah. It’s an ancient tradition.
-That’s the opposite of America. -Yeah.
-Yeah. Oh, I guess back in the day,
coal — -I guess it would have
been a gift. But now it seems really meager. -Yeah.
-Yeah. -It means, like, your — In America it means
that you’ve been bad. Yeah, but now this — it used to
be — yeah, warm, I guess. -I don’t see you guys
picking up our tradition. [ Laughter ] -So, First Footing?
I would do that. -Yeah.
-That’s fun. We used to go bang pots and pans
every New Year’s and walk over to my neighbor’s
house and walk in there. So I guess I probably did
First Footing in America. -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] -I drank a lot of whiskey,
as well. -They did, yes.
[ Laughter ] That’s always the regular thing
that we do. -Just always do —
Yeah, a little. I’ve got to say
because there is this thing that’s going around
the Internet. I’m sure you’ve heard it. But everyone’s looking at who’s
going to be the new James Bond because Daniel Craig is stepping
down after this movie. And your name’s on the top of
a lot of people’s lists. [ Cheers and applause ] -Including William Shatner. [ Laughter ] Who said,
“I’m hoping Sam Heughan is gonna be the new James Bond. Been saying it for years. Now people are
actually thinking it. Ahead of my time, hashtag.” -He would be the great villain.
Wouldn’t he? -Oh, he’d be a great
“James Bond” villain. Yeah.
-I can see that happening. -Do you know William Shatner? -Actually, no, I do. We’ve hung out a couple of times
in Los Angeles. -Really?
-Yeah, he’s quite a character. -He’s the best.
-He is. We had sushi. And he sent me some bourbon
one time. Yeah. -Really?
-He’s amazing, yeah. -But he’s rooting for you.
But is there any truth to it? Can you tell us anything? -I can reveal right now
that I am not James Bond. No. [ Laughter ] I’ve never heard —
I’m waiting for the call. Still waiting for the call. -Oh, but you haven’t been told
you’re not James Bond? -Well, I haven’t been told
I’m not. But — -That’s something.
Dude, me and you both. Yeah, I haven’t heard —
[ Laughter ] They haven’t told me.
I’m waiting. I mean, no one ever brings it up
as much. Yeah. I’m not on any of the lists yet. -I actually — I do — -You would be the first Scottish
since Connery. -Since Connery, yeah.
-Since Sean Connery. That’s right. -Ian Fleming, you know, he had
a lot of Scottish ties. And I think it would
be definitely time for another Scottish Bond. -Yes.
-Actually shot — [ Cheers and applause ] I shot a movie this year
based on Andy McNab’s novels. And it’s a lot like Bond,
a lot like Bourne. -Is that the Vin Diesel movie? -No, it’s another movie. -Wow, you’re crushing it.
What’s the Vin Diesel one I saw? -I did a movie called
“Bloodshot.” It’s out in February.
-Yeah. -And it’s with Vin Diesel.
And it’s comic book movie. I think people are
really going to love it. -Congrats on all the stuff. I mean, what years
you’re having. I mean, this is, like, giant.
“Outlander” is — -I know. I haven’t got time for
this actually. -No, yeah, you got to go.
Yeah, yeah. Understood. I’ll just plug your stuff
while you’re walking out. But “Outlander.” Explain this. ‘Cause you have your fan base
when you started. But now — since it went to
Netflix, it’s a whole — It’s international.
Everyone loves you. Like, you just got voted —
I saw some poll — sexiest TV period drama
star of all time. Hey. [ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you, man. My mom is obviously voting
a lot for that. -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] -So I got to thank her for that.
-But you have giant fans. -We’ve got amazing fans.
You know, the books — [ Cheers and applause ] I think they’re all here,
in fact. [ Laughter ] -Yeah. Yeah.
This is Outlander Con. -That’s it. That’s it.
-This is Outlander Con. We’re doing it here tonight.
Yeah. -Just rename your show.
-Yeah, we should. I would totally do that, yeah. But I mean, is it —
I don’t know. It’s got to feel amazing. Everywhere you go people
know you. -The show has been going,
you know, six years now. Season five
is coming out in February. And it’s been
an amazing journey. You know, I never thought
when I first got the job that we would still be here. But it’s a great show. And this season, I think, is probably stronger
than last season. -What’s happening this season? -Well, my character, he’s been
pitted against his godfather. He’s now on the side of
the Redcoats, the British. We’re in America, of course,
and the war is coming. And, yeah, I think it’s a really, really strong
ending as well. The finale is going to be
pretty tough to watch but some really great TV. -Yes, that’s what
I’m talking about. I want to show a clip. Here’s Sam Heughan in the new
season of “Outlander.” Take a look. -That’s not called
a cutthroat razor for nothing. Any of you looking like you’ve
been to the war and back. Not today anyway. Nervous? -About what? The day he has in store for me or that you have
a blade to my throat? -Sam Heughan, everybody!

  1. I need to know if we will get to see more of his booty on the next Outlander season? Cause we need more of it! Just sayin..🤷🏼‍♀️😂

  2. Love Sam!!! Hope he's the next James Bond!! He would crush it… i recently discovered Outlander thanks to Netflex and binge watched all 3 seasons. I'm ready for S4/S5 !

  3. I would like to visit USA one day. Everyone seems lovely over thee haha. Plus the weather seems a lot better too. I have spoken to an American lass before when I was like 18 years old on Omegle and she thought I was irish haha. She was like omg you have an Irish accent and I was like “nah lass I’m Scottish” haha. But aye she was a sweet lassie

  4. Truth is open to human only in his reason, given by God to understand God's will, and implanting distrust toward the Reason carries in itself the desire to deceive and is the greatest blasphemy. Tolstoy Christian Teaching

  5. Instead of yielding to their lusts, breeding like rabbits, producing chemical foods to feed their increasing generation, why not be chaste, battling against lusts, living in loving communion? Tolstoy On the Importance of the Upcoming Moral Revolution

  6. Omg, i'm so anxious for the next season of Outlander!!!! Can't wait!!!! Sam, always sexy with his accent, i love himmmmm ♥️

  7. I love that he says, “i think this season is stronger than last season.”

    Basically saying what we all felt: IT SUCKED.

    Hopes:
    Brianna leaves Roger
    Roger dies
    Roger goes back to his time
    Roger falls in love with someone else

    Basically my hope is that Roger leaves the show! And yes I’m aware this will not happen but let a girl dream.

  8. To: my giantess albino white girlfriend Princess JImena Fancifulnesses

  9. Don’t know who this guy is, 🤷‍♀️sorry. I watched this last night, all I kept thinking, was why couldn’t this guy afford a suit that fit him? It looks like he stole it from a 12 yr old, it’s so tight, I got a wedgie just looking at him. 😂

  10. If he ever takes the Bond role, I will personally kill him. This guy is far too talented to throw even one year away for an action franchise, no matter how much of a dream it is for every boy on the planet…

  11. Jimmy: You have giant fans!!
    Large Fans in his House: (start blowing harder)
    Alexa: Screw you guys!
    His Nest Thermostat: (Turns down for what)

  12. I’m looking at this guy and the only thing I’m thinking he would be a solid fucking pick to play Eric Draven in The Crow. One day…

  13. Hace años que no veo una pelicula de james bond (la verdad no me atraen) pero por Sam heughan me vería cualquier cosa. Así de lindo es.

  14. The ENDING will be hard to watch?! All the hard shit is in the middle (of the book) although I did hear they were gonna start condensing the content of the books and merging them for the sake of storytelling- and fiery cross is by far the longest of the 8 books

  15. He has this thing he does where his mouth goes wide, and he takes in a deep, quick breath… Maybe like a nervous tick? A dang sexy nervous tick though.

  16. Outlander is a masterpiece. Golden Globes, get a clue! Sam is one of the greatest actors I've ever had the pleasure of resting my eyes on. He and Cait (and the ensemble) are pure magic! Thank you, Diana Gabaldon!

  17. This was a weak interview Jimmy! You can tell there was no true interest! 😑 Watch outlander for Christ's sake and then you'd be more enthusiastic!!!

  18. The outlander series by Diana Gabaldon are the best. They got me through many a cold dark night. Wonderful writer. I had an idea in my mind what Jamie looked like and Sam isn’t quite it. But he’s close enough!!

  19. Forget about James Bond. He will be playing Paul Newman in the upcoming new Paul Newman bio pic. A nice choice tbh. Sam kind of looks like Mr. Newman. Sam is an incredibly brilliant actor. It's about time he gets the recognition he so much deserves.
