The Doctor is cooler than Bond, but Matt Smith would love to play a villain

19-Mar-2011 • Bond News

Between series of "Dr Who", actor Matt Smith say says, he can do whatever he likes, although he doubts that he would have the time to take on a play - reports The Telegraph. Could he see himself trying to bag any other iconic British roles in the future, James Bond perhaps? ‘Oh God, I don’t think I’m handsome enough, I think I’m more of a Bond villain. It’d be nice to be the actor that played them both though, wouldn’t it?

‘The Doctor’s cooler, though,’ he adds. 'He can time travel, he’s cleverer… Bond’s all right, but he’s not the Doc.’

So how long does he intend to play the Doctor for? ‘Well, I’m going back this year. I guess get another one out the way, see what everyone thinks of that. I love doing it, I don’t want to give it up anytime soon, put it that way.’
