Matt Smith has revealed that he would like to play a James Bond villain.

The Doctor Who star said that he doesn't believe he is "handsome enough" to portray 007 himself, but suggested he would make a good adversary for the cinematic superspy.

"I'm not handsome enough to be James Bond," The Sun quotes him as saying. "Maybe a villain though. Start campaigning now. I don't think I could be James Bond though."

On the type of Bond baddie he would like, Smith referenced Daniel Craig's latest record-breaking instalment in the franchise.

"I'd edge on the camp dangerous side I think," he commented. "Javier Bardem was amazing. I thought Skyfall was a sumptuous film."

Smith also called the forthcoming Doctor Who series opener 'The Bells of Saint John' "a modern-day conspiracy thriller [that's] like Doctor Who meets Bourne meets Bond".

'The Bells of Saint John' will air on Saturday, March 30 at 6.10pm on BBC One. »
