Clint Eastwood wants to be James Bond.

The 80-year-old actor-turned-director previously claimed 2008's 'Gran Torino' would be his last movie role, but he admits he could be tempted to come out from behind the camera if he was offered the right project.

He said: "I would act if the right role came along. But I'm not looking doe it because there are not that many great roles that would be something different for me to play, to conquer.

"I don't know, I never say never, like James Bond or something."

Clint also admitted working on his latest movie 'Hereafter' made him more conscious of his own mortality.

He added: "I've thought about it, certainly doing the project. I don't think dwell upon it in everyday life but, when I was doing the project, you start thinking about it.

"I guess I'm at the stage in life where I like stories I've never done before."

The screen legend also revealed he has considered retiring, but has no plans to do so.

He added: "I've thought about it a few times, but I think because I'm learning something new in the process, I enjoy what I do."
