"It's very difficult to follow someone's footsteps and Daniel Craig is an absolute phenomenal actor and I think he's brought the Bond to a real state of credibility, I mean, it got goofy at times, but he is fantastic... If they ever ask me, I mean I grew up on James Bond so it's part of my culture and I do a lot of action movies, so it doesn't seem too far out of my reach to be able to do something like that, if it ever came." Movie hardman Jason Statham would welcome the chance to take over the role of 007 if fellow Brit DANIEL CRAIG decides to retire as the suave superspy.
