Thor star Chris Hemsworth has said that he would love to play James Bond.

Hemsworth admits there was a buzz about him playing 007 several years ago when he was filming racing car drama Rush.

Now, as fans await news of who will replace Daniel Craig as the superspy following the Brit’s final outing as Bond, Hemsworth admits he’d love to be considered.

“When we were shooting Rush… I thought, ‘Cool, if this is my audition tape, then great’,” Hemsworth told BalanceĀ magazine. “I don’t think you’ll ever meet anyone who doesn’t want to have a crack at James Bond. I’d love to do it.

“But that’s up to so many elements and is way beyond myself; it’s not one you can pitch yourself on to either. It’s something that the community of Bond fans, (producer) Barbara Broccoli and the whole crew there agree on, and it has to be a very organic decision from them. There have been a lot of names thrown out there and a lot of brilliant people can tackle that one.”

The favourite appears to be Idris Elba but there has also been a buzz around Sam Heughan, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, Rami Malek and James Norton.
