David Beckham as New Bond?

You read that right. If Daniel Craig were to hang up his 007 badge, have no fear because David Beckham is waiting in the wings to take over.

According to his wife, Victoria Beckham, that is.

During a joint interview with a Chinese news station, the star couple fielded questions regarding David’s recent retirement and potential acting career.

"I have some friends who are actors, Tom Cruise is a very good friend of ours,” David said. “But I don't think I have any plans to become an actor. I'm not sure I'd be very good at it."

Where David played it coy with the “I don’t think”-s and the “I’m not sure” *wink* *wink*, Victoria was more assertive. “I think you would be really good at acting,” she said, then turned to the reporter to gain some third-party support.

"Don't you think he'd be good at acting? I think you'd be great!" she added. "I think he should be James Bond! He'd be a good James Bond!"

It's still way too early to make assumptions that David's in talks to be the next Bond when Daniel's still got that gig for the next installment or two. On a more general note, he does have the look to portray a small character in a hypothetical Guy Ritchie heist-caper movie where a British cartel smuggles drugs in through soccer balls, don't you think?
