Musician Sam Smith thinks that superstar soccer player David Beckham would be an ”interesting” James Bond.
The 23-year-old singer has recorded the theme for the next installment of the ever-popular spy franchise, Spectre, and believes the retired soccer star would make a very handsome leading man, following speculation linking him to the role.
He said: ”That would be interesting, that’s all I’ll say – that would be very interesting. He’d look fit for sure! He looks amazing in a suit.”
Sam was offered the Bond theme over a year ago, and has also said that he would like to see Ellie Goulding follow in his footsteps and record the next iconic song for the film series, having previously tipped her to get the Spectre theme in a bid to play down the circulating rumours that he was recording the track.
He told OK!: ”I felt really bad and I have to apologise because I never said that Ellie was doing it. I just heard rumours so when I was asked, ‘Who do you think should do it?’ I was like, ‘Well I heard Ellie Goulding was doing it’. I never meant to put her in it.”
”She would 100 per cent be the best person for it, so hopefully next time she’ll do it.”
