AceShowbiz - Joe Cole wants his "Gangs of London" co-star Lucian Msamati to appear in a new James Bond movie.
The "Peaky Blinders" star has been tipped as a potential replacement for Daniel Craig in the iconic spy franchise, alongside the likes of Tom Hardy and James Norton, but he thinks Lucian is a far better bet.
Speaking to British music site NME, Cole said: "I think it would be Lucian Msamati... All day long. I'd love to see Lucian rocking the 007 tux."
Co-star Sope Dirisu added: "We've already seen him in a tux. Watch the series and you'll see Lucian in a tux with a pistol and a silencer."
"He could play a bad guy, probably," Cole replied. "Lucian for the villain in the next Bond movie."
The new James Bond movie, "No Time to Die", has been pushed back to November from its initial April release date, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
