Michael Fassbender has ruled himself out of playing the role of James Bond.

“To be honest, no,” he replied when asked would he like to star as the 007 agent.

Michael praised current James Bond star, Daniel Craig, but suggested alternatives such either a female Jane Bond or a younger James Bond.

“As an acting role, I think Daniel has done such a cracking job in this age group. I think the franchise needs something new,” he told British GQ.

“I just love Bond. Doesn’t everyone? I grew up with him. It’s always a fun conversation to have.

“But Bond should be someone in their early 20s. I always thought Bond should be British, but let’s get an American in o r maybe someone like Jack O’Connell would be good?

“Or even better, how about Jane Bond? A woman. One thing is for sure, it won’t be anyone on the bookies’ lists. It never is.”
