London, Sep 26: William Boyd has revealed Daniel Day-Lewis is his choice for the role of the super-spy for his new Bond novel 'Solo'.

The acclaimed author of 'A Good Man in Africa' said that Day-Lewis truly resembles the Bond that Ian Fleming describes in his James Bond series of spy novels, and has picked him to play the role when his new novel which is set in 1969, is adapted for the big screen, the Independent revealed.

He added that Fleming described Bond in three novels as looking like Hoagy Carmichael, a singer-songwriter famous around the Second World War, and in his opinion, the 56-year old 'Lincoln' actor fits. »
