Nicholas Hoult wants to be James Bond

Los Angeles - Nicholas Hoult wants to play James Bond.

The heartthrob is a huge 007 fan and would relish the chance to portray the suave spy on the big screen.
However, he thinks he'd be too young to take over from current Bond Daniel Craig - who will next be seen in the role in Spectre - when his tenure is up.

Hoult, 25, told Time Out London magazine: "I think I'm too young! He's (Daniel's) got this film and then one more to go, hasn't he? So that's another five years? I'll only be 30, and I think I'd need another few years behind me to play Bond. Maybe a little further down the road, who knows? I mean, I grew up loving James Bond."

Just as Hoult is a big admirer of Craig he is also a big fan of Tom Hardy - who he stars opposite in Mad Max: Fury Road.

The young actor was idolised Hardy before they shot the action flick together and afterwards he had even more respect for him as a performer.

Speaking about his admiration for Hardy, Hoult said: "I've been a big fan of him for a while now. When you get to work with actors you look up to, the first thing you want to do is figure out how they do what they do. He's as dynamic in the scene as he is on screen. You're not quite sure where he's going to go next. He keeps it fresh, it's a lot of fun to do scenes with him."
