In a new interview with the BBC News, Bloom discussed what he could bring to the mahogany poker table.

Are you listening, Barbara Broccoli?

"I think a bit of that very English, but like that sort of twinkle, with a bit of muscular dynamic."

"I grew up loving those [Bond] films. Who didn't? I'm sure they'll probably do more with Daniel, and who knows where they'll go with that?

"Again, that franchise is a part of the fabric of our society, isn't it? It's something that people really relate, and laugh and enjoy… That little wink and twinkling behind the eyes is what I always saw in Sean Connery and Roger Moore.

"I love what Daniel Craig did — muscular, dynamic. I think there's a combination of all of that that's really interesting."

Look out, Dan

So are you listening, Barbara? There's a perfectly good Orlando Bloom out there, and he's ready to twinkle!
