Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking is not only interested in an onscreen presence but also has a dream role in his mind -- that of a villain in a James Bond movie.
"My ideal role would be a baddie in James Bond. I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part," he said.
Rumours suggest he would be battling Christoph Waltz for the main antagonist role in the next 007, but the thought of Hawking on screens is not quite so far-fetched, with him having famously appeared in episodes of Star Trek and The Simpsons.
Earlier this year, he also popped up in a special video recorded for the Monty Python Live (Mostly) shows in London, singing the Galaxy Song.
