Actor Jason Statham confessed he would like to be the next James Bond, arguing his latest role in "The Transporter", due in UK cinemas on November 18, is very similar with a XXI-th century Bond.

According to the New York Post the "Snatch" star said: "He's (Bond) been around for so many years.

"I'm a massive fan of James Bond, and I've seen every one of the movies. If I was to do that most prestigious role, then I think I'd add a new, modern feel to it, definitely."

He added: "He's the James Bond that drinks a Heineken, not a martini."

Jason Statham born 1972, is a British actor, known best for his work in the Guy Ritchie crime caper films "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch", though he has also appeared as a supporting character in several Hollywood productions such as "The One" and the American remake of "The Italian Job".
