Nicholas Hoult would love to play James Bond.

The 'Warm Bodies' actor admitted he felt like the suave secret agent after receiving complimentary tuxedos from his 'A Single Man' director, American fashion designer Tom Ford, and would love to wear a real 007 costume on screen.

In an interview with ShortList magazine, he said: ''I've wangled a few free suits from [Tom Ford]. His are the best you can get. My advice to any man is just to own one. You slip into a Tom Ford suit and feel like James Bond.

''I grew up watching James Bond films and loved them, so if that opportunity ever came up in five or 10 years, I'd love it.''

Nicholas isn't the only star hoping to succeed 'Skyfall' actor Daniel Craig, however.

'Luther' actor Idris Elba has long been linked to the role and recently admitted he has been told to keep quiet about it for fear of ''turning off'' producers.

He said: ''It's a rumour. And, I have to tell you, if the producers of Bond thought that I was self-campaigning, it would be such a turn-off. I'm flattered, obviously, but I've been advised to just pipe down about it.''
