LONDON, April 22. /TASS/. One of the most famous and controversial British politicians Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), has said he could be the next James Bond, local media reported on Tuesday.
Answering a journalist’s question on who should be the next 007 agent, Farage said he would "give it a go." "You've got to be faithful to Ian Fleming, and the original writer. It has to be male, it has to be a rogue of some description," the politician noted. "I'm not handsome enough, but I'm certainly a rogue," Farage said.
British media are actively discussing who will fill the spot as the next James Bond. Labor leader Ed Miliband earlier suggested Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike could give it a try, while most speculation surrounds Idris Elba, who could become the first black 007.
In 2014, The Times named Farage "Briton of the year" after UKIP gained ground in the British politics. The party, which supports tougher immigration policies and Britain’s exit from EU, won two seats in the national parliament and stormed the European elections last year.
