Actor Colin Farrell has said he is not interested in becoming the next James Bond, despite being tipped for the role by previous Bond star Pierce Brosnan.
Farrell joked he would play Bond with an Irish accent
"I would not like to do it," Farrell said. "They should find someone the audience has no history with."
The 28-year-old Irish actor joked that if he got the part, he would use an Irish accent to confuse fans of the suave British secret agent.
Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor and Jude Law have also been tipped for the role.
Last week Brosnan, who appeared in four Bond blockbusters, confirmed he would not reprise the 007 role.
Pierce Brosnan starred in four James Bond films from 1995-2002
He said he agreed to film a fifth Bond movie but was "gutted" when producers changed their minds.
Brosnan, 51, added that Phone Booth star Farrell should take the role in favour of other actors because "he'll eat the head off them all".
The James Bond character has taken nearly $4bn (£2.15bn) at the box office since Dr No was released 42 years ago.
Sean Connery first played Bond, followed by George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton before Brosnan took over. The next Bond film is due to be released in 2006.
