Black 007: Will’s hereMay 8th, 2009 - 2:54 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
For a while there have been talks about a Black James Bond and actor Will Smith is the latest to add his name to the list of stars who want to be the first black Bond.
He strongly maintains that he’ll the best choice for producers.
According to contactmusic.com, the other hopefuls are
Rapper Diddy and actor Jamie Foxx and they wish to be possible replacements for current Bond, Daniel Craig.
Jennifer Lopez’s ex- boyfriend went so far as to shoot a 007-themed TV ad for his fragrance line in an effort to show producers what he would look like as a black Bond.
But Smith insists he’s the best choice and says: “Diddy probably lives the most like James Bond and Jamie Foxx got the swagger for James Bond. He can sing too, so he can add a new element to Bond, wooing the ladies. But I think I can guarantee the box office”
Well said, Smith. This man sure a star, knows himself well enough and is likely to shine forth in any role.
