London, November 15 : Gay actor John Barrowman, 41, has expressed his desire to become Daniel Craig's successor as James Bond.
The Torchwood star has even revealed that he had auditioned for the suave spy's role before Pierce Brosnan, but the producers told him that he looked too young to play the character.
"They really liked me but said to come back in 20 years," the Sun quoted him as saying.
"Maybe in a few years time...who knows?" he added.
When asked during a radio programme whether he would like to portray 007, Barrowman said: "Bring it on baby."
However, some Bond fans believe that Barrowman, who married his gay lover two years ago, is "not macho enough".
