Yes, Henry Cavill Still Wants To Play James Bond One Day

When it comes to sexy movie characters, few can compete with the timeless allure and glamour of James Bond.

Actors that have played the iconic secret agent include hotties like Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

Now, Henry Cavill is confirming again that yes, he would like to give fans his version of 007 and I, for one, am ALL FOR IT!

If you can believe it, Henry Cavill once auditioned for the role but was turned down!

The 37-year-old Superman star has previously spoken about how he auditioned for the role back when Casino Royale was being developed, but was turned down because his weight.

"I probably could have prepared better," Cavill said in an interview last year.

"I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, 'Looking a little chubby there, Henry,' I didn't know how to train or diet. And I'm glad Martin said something because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better."

Now, 15 years later, Henry told *British GQ* he would still LOVE the chance to play James Bond.

"If Barbara and Mike were interested in that, I would absolutely jump at the opportunity," Henry explained.

Of course, he's referring to Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and co-producer Michael G. Wilson!

"At this stage, it's all up in the air. We'll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond, it would be very, very exciting."

I think fans would also be very, very excited at a Cavill Bond film!

Do you want Henry to be the next 007?! Let us know in the comments below!
