Steve Carell wants to be the next Bond villain

Despicable Me star Steve Carell has said that he is keen to shed his good guy image to play a James Bond villain.

The 50-year-old actor, who has starred in rom-coms The 40 Year Old Virgin, Date Night and Crazy, Stupid, Love explained that he wants fans to see him in a new light.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Carell said: "My dream is to be a Bond villain. Everyone wants to be in a Bond film. There's an interesting way that people depict Bond villains that they're charismatic and almost likeable, almost redeemable and human.

"Not a caricature or a villain but a human being who does bad things. I think it's most actors' dream to play a Bond villain."
