London: Actor Nicholas Hoult wants to take over the lead role in the James Bond franchise.

The `X-Men: First Class` star says that at 23, he is too young for the role of 007, currently played by Daniel Craig, but hopes he will eventually be considered for the coveted part, reported Daily Star.

"Give me 15 years. Let`s start the campaign now. I`m going to start walking round Pinewood (studios, where the Bond films are made) in a tuxedo," Hoult said.

The actor recently ended his relationship with Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence after dating her for a year.
