Former JAMES BOND star ROGER MOORE wants CUBA GOODING JR. to take over from PIERCE BROSNAN as the smooth-talking spy.
The veteran actor would love to see the black actor, who won an OSCAR for JERRY MAGUIRE (1996), play the ladies' favourite secret agent.
Roger says he thinks its about time there was a black 007 and that Cuba would be perfect to fill Pierce's shoes after he films his last Bond outing next year (02). (ES/WNWCPO/KW)
