Los Angeles - Daniel Craig doesn't care if a black actor is cast as the new James Bond.

The Spectre star, 47, has admitted he's not bothered who takes on the role of the lead character when he steps away from the franchise because he's confident "the right person" will be chosen to portray the British spy.

He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "The right person should do the job, and I don't give a fuck what colour their skin is. It shouldn't be an issue."

However, the handsome actor isn't so sure a female should play the secret service agent, but hasn't ruled it out.

He added: "A female to play James Bond? That's another story. But why not? Jasmine Bond?"

Meanwhile, although Craig previously hinted he was ready to quit the franchise after the upcoming movie, he has now insisted that he will make at least one more.

He said previously: "It's getting harder. But such is life. I'll keep going as long as I'm physically able. I'm contracted for one more - but I'm not going to make predictions.

"These movies don't get made very often. It's just the fourth time for me, a spit in the ocean. If you don't get excited about making a movie of this size with this cast, with Sam Mendes... then go home."

Meanwhile, Luther star Idris Elba is the hot favourite to take on the lead role following Craig's departure.
