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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
