Hugh Grant has said that he wishes he could have played James Bond, and joked that the role of The Hulk always appealed to him.

Speaking in a Reddit.com Q&A with his fans, Grant said: "I was never offered James Bond, sadly. Which is a shame, because I think I would look nice in a white tuxedo. And I do love to kill."

The star also joked that the role of The Incredible Hulk is another lost opportunity, "I've always cherished the role of The Hulk, and am furious no one has offered it to me."

And on Batman he commented, "When I was seven, I had a utility belt, a Bat-cape, Bat handkerchiefs, and I still do, to this day, sometimes like to wear my underpants outside my tights."
