Outlander star Sam Heughan is one step closer to becoming the next James Bond – at least in his mind. Heughan believes his role in the upcoming film, The Spy Who Dumped Me, is fully preparing him to step into the shoes of 007, including gifting him with a sweet car and tux.
Heughan opened up about playing the iconic spy while promoting The Spy Who Dumped Me on Facebook. After fans asked the Outlander star if he was considering auditioning for the role, Heughan admitted that it wouldn’t be difficult for him to play James Bond.
After all, he already has a car and tuxedo from his new movie and producers wouldn’t have to pay him much for starring in the film.
“So, really actually they don’t need to pay me that much because I can bring everything with me,” Heughan added.
Of course, Heughan still has to wait for Daniel Craig to walk away from the James Bond franchise before he can be considered for the part. When that happens, it’s pretty clear that Outlander fans across the globe will be pulling for Heughan to get the role.
According to The Scottish Sun, Heughan also chatted about his celebrity crush during the Facebook interview. The Outlander actor, who just finished filming Season 4 of the hit series, revealed that he has a huge crush on Mila Kunis, who happened to work with him on his latest movie.
In fact, Heughan admitted that he has always had a crush on Kunis and said it was great working with her and SNL star Kate McKinnon. While Heughan likes Kunis, he claims that her husband, Ashton Kutcher, never “threatened to beat” him up, which is definitely a good thing.
Heughan has been making the rounds to promote his latest movie. Apart from the Facebook interview, Heughan recently talked about The Spy Who Dumped Me during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
In the interview, Heughan revealed that he has lied in order to land acting gigs in the past, including telling people he could ride a horse and do various accents. In one audition, the Outlander star tried to act like he was from the United States and Canada.
Fans can watch Sam Heughan in action when the new season of Outlander premieres on Starz this November.
