The `GI Joe: Retaliation` star said he is a big fan of James Bond actor Daniel Craig and loved the latest instalment in the 007 franchise `Skyfall`, reported Contactmusic.
"Skyfall`s one of the greatest action movies of all time. It`s amazing. Love Daniel Craig. I would love to be in Bond. Maybe a Bond baddie," he said.
