Nicholas Hoult wants to be James Bond

British actor NICHOLAS HOULT wants to take over the lead role in the JAMES BOND franchise.

The X-Men: First Class star admits that at 23, he is too young for the role of 007, currently played by Daniel Craig, but hopes he will eventually be considered for the coveted part.

He tells the London Evening Standard, "Give me 15 years. Let's start the campaign now. I'm going to start walking round Pinewood (studios, where the Bond films are made) in a tuxedo."
