Denzel Washington Would Love To Be Bond, James Bond

The Oscar winner asks the internet to help him scratch MI6 off his bucket list.

Daniel Craig had better watch his rearview, because Denzel Washington is gunning for his license to kill.

In a Reddit AMA to promote his new movie, "The Equalizer," Denzel was asked whether he'd like to be the next actor in line to play James Bond -- and his response was wildly enthusiastic.

"The next James Bond? They better hurry up!" Washington wrote. "Yes I would! Who's doing James Bond now... Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio! We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond!"

Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for the #DenzelIsJamesBond hashtag to explode on Twitter. Whether the powers that be will respond by offering Denzel the 007 mantle remains to be seen -- right now, they're still trying to round out the cast of the next Bond movie starring Daniel Craig -- but he should probably start practicing his English accent, just in case.

What do you think? Should Denzel Washington be the next James Bond?
