Diddy wants to play James Bond

Diddy never ceases to amaze me.

Now that he’s landed a small role on CSI: Miami, the Mount Vernon raised mogul makes the case to the world why he should succeed Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

“This is my audition tape,”  he said. “…I feel like I am suited to be the next James Bond. We’ve had a black president, now it’s time for a black Bond.”

About 1:45 into the video, Diddy presents a short film he produced for his new fragrance I Am King and cites it as evidence he has what it takes to play the famous role of 007.
