Will Smith Washington, May 7 (ANI): Will Smith has joined the likes of stars vying to become the first black James Bond, and has claimed that he’s the best choice for the iconic spy-role.

Rap mogul Diddy and Jamie Foxx have already forwarded their names as a possible replacement for the current 007, Daniel Craig.

And recently, ‘Obsessed’ star Idris Elba had claimed that he would be a better choice because he was British.

In fact, Diddy went to the extent of shooting a 007-themed TV ad for his fragrance line, just to show producers how he’d look as a black Bond.

However, the ‘I am Legend’ star, considered to be the most bankable star in showbiz, has said that he can be the best choice for producers.

“Puff 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,” Contactmusic quoted Smith as saying.

He added: “But I think I can guarantee the box office!” (ANI)
