Michael Fassbender has ruled himself out of taking on the role of James Bond when Daniel Craig decides to hang up his Walter PPK.

Speaking to GQ magazine, the Irish actor revealed that while he loves the franchise he was simply too old for the role now.

Bond! Is this rumour still going round?” he said. “To be honest, no. As an acting role, I think Daniel has done such a cracking job in this age group.

Fassbender did however throw two names into the mix – Ryan Gosling and Jack O’Connell.

While Gosling is a fine actor I think it is up-and-coming English star O’Connell who could be an interesting choice. Check him out in ’71 for example.

All this is conjecture ofcourse until Craig announces that he is done with the role.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
