Lara Croft Tomb Raider villain Iain Glen has been tipped to become the next James Bond, following in the footsteps of Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery and Roger Moore who each tenured the role of Ian Fleming’s Secret Service agent 007.

"I haven't had a direct offer" Glen told Variety Magazine, "and I know there are several names being mentioned as possible Bonds. The Bond formula has had such a good life that I'd have to make sure I wasn't getting on board when it had seen its best days."

Asked whether the Scottish born actor could stomach a Vodka Martini, Bonds favourite tipple, Glen countered, "yeah, I don't mind them. The thing is, I think I'm pretty good at knowing when I'll fall flat on my face and when I won't, and I definitely don't want to be seen as the George Lazenby of the 21st century."

Other contenders include singer Robbie Williams, football star turned actor Vinnie Jones, Jude Law and Rupert Everett.
