I'm no action hero, says Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe has admitted that he'll never play James Bond - but he'd make a good baddie in the 007 films.

The ex-Harry Potter star said that he doesn't have the right physique to play the famous spy, or any action hero.

"I am never going to be cast to play a Bruce Willis character in Die Hard," The Sun quotes Daniel as saying.

"I would make a much better villain than Bond - I am not nearly strapping enough to play Bond."

Matt Smith recently announced he was stepping down from Doctor Who, but Daniel said that he wasn't interested in taking on the lead role in the sci-fi series.

"I've done one iconic character, that might be enough," he said.

Daniel has finished filming Horns with Juno Temple and comedy The F Word with Rafe Spall.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
