Hugh Jackman said that he wants to play the role of James Bond but clarified that he has not been approached for the role. "I'd certainly give it a thought. I don't think there's an actor on the planet who wouldn't at least say, 'Oh, let me have a think about that'," he said

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman said that he is interested in playing the iconic British spy, James Bond, reported E! Online.

The 46-year-old actor also clarified that he has not been approached for the role, but he is open to play Agent 007. "I'd certainly give it a thought. I don't think there's an actor on the planet who wouldn't at least say, 'Oh, let me have a think about that.'"

Mr Jackman had earlier said that he was once offered the role, but decided against it because he was getting ready to film X-Men 2.(Also Read: Hugh Jackman's Last Time as Wolverine, a Preview on Twitter)

"I'd seriously consider it. Just before Daniel (Craig) took over, at that time I was just about to do X-Men 2 and I was like 'I don't think it's the right time'. But it was not an easy one for me to give up," he added.
