British actor Mark Strong is eying his next villainous role - he's eager to play a Bond baddie opposite his pal Daniel Craig. The "Sherlock Holmes" star is famed for portraying sinister characters, and kick-started his career on U.K. TV drama "Our Friends in the North" opposite Craig - who is the godfather of his eldest son.

And Strong would like to reteam with the hunk for a James Bond movie - playing a villain opposite Craig's 007. He tells Britain's The Sun, "I would like to be a Bond villain if it was interesting. I choose every part according to whether I respond to the character. I love the fact that playing the villain is such an honorable profession and it's been elevated to a particular title in those movies - there's the Bond girl and the Bond villain."

Most recently, it was reported that Daniel Craig has delayed "Bond 23" filming to concentrate on another movie project.
