I’m the best black James Bond: Will SmithMay 7th, 2009 - 1:03 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 7 (IANS) Hollywood actor Will Smith, who is the latest to add his name to the list of stars who want to be the first black James Bond, said he will be the best choice for producers.
Rapper Diddy and actor Jamie Foxx have both put their names forward as a possible replacement for current Bond, Daniel Craig, reported contactmusic.com.
Diddy 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: “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!”
