“Hateful Eight” star Samuel L Jackson has revealed he would’ve loved to have played James Bond. The 66-year-old Samuel L Jackson, who has been linked to the role numerous times, has now admitted he would definitely have taken it on if he were offered it when he was younger and insisted he doesn’t know any actors who would turn it down, reported GQ magazine.

Asked if he would’ve played Bond, he said, “Sure yeah, why not? I love Bond movies, I’ve loved them since I was a kid. Everyone wants to be a double-oh spy.”

However, since the actor has now ruled himself out, he’s instead revealed who he would like to see replace Daniel Craig as the next 007.

“Hmm. Tom Hiddleston? Actually, after we saw him kicking all that ass in ‘Kingsman’, I think Colin Firth would be a fine Bond.”
