Jason Statham Thinks He'd Make 'a Decent Bond'

No stranger to movie franchises, Jason Statham already has "The Transporter," "Crank," "The Expendables" and "Fast and the Furious" among his long list of credits. However, he wouldn't mind adding another: James Bond.

With Daniel Craig approaching the end of his 007 contract, The Guardian asked Statham whether he'd be interested in taking the role. “Could I do it? Abso-fucking-lutely,” the action star replied. “Would I do it? Abso-fucking-lutely. Is Daniel Craig a great Bond? Abso-fucking-lutely.”

“Yeah, I’d make a decent Bond,” continued Statham, who plays a secret agent in the new Paul Feig action comedy "Spy." “But it’d be very, very different if I did it.”

However, the actor, who took a turn as antagonist in "Furious 7," would decline an offer to portray a Bond villain. “I don’t know if I wanna to do that," Statham said. "That’s not my thing. I’d rather play the other guy.”

"Spy," which also stars Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne and Jude Law, opens Friday.
