P Diddy wants to be Bond

P Diddy is making a bid to be the first black James Bond.

The rapper, who also runs his own record label and clothing range, modestly believes he is perfect for the 007 role reports the Evening Standard.

The man formerly known as Puff Daddy said: "The world is ready for a black James Bond."

Producers behind the James Bond franchise are said to be undecided who will step into the role vacated by Pierce Brosnan.

Colin Farrell, Hugh Jackman, Clive Owen and Jude Law have all been linked to the role.
