was recently quoted saying "My dream is to be a Bond villain."
In March of 2012, Hollywood action hero Bruce Willis
admitted "I always thought it would be more fun to play bad guys. I tried it a couple of times but it really wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be, so I'll stay good unless there's a James Bond villain offer."

is also eager for the role, revealing his grandfather was a Bond Nemesis "I would love to be in Bond. Maybe a Bond baddie. You know, my grandfather (wrestler High Chief Peter Maivia) was in You Only Live Twice
