William Boyd believes Daniel Day-Lewis would make ideal 007.

London, Sept 26 ( ANI ): William Boyd has revealed Daniel Day-Lewis is his choice for the role of the super-spy for his new Bond novel 'Solo'.

The acclaimed author of 'A Good Man in Africa' said that Day-Lewis truly resembles the Bond that Ian Fleming describes in his James Bond series of spy novels, and has picked him to play the role when his new novel which is set in 1969, is adapted for the big screen, the Independent revealed.

He added that Fleming described Bond in three novels as looking like Hoagy Carmichael, a singer-songwriter famous around the Second World War, and in his opinion, the 56-year old 'Lincoln' actor fits the bill.

The British novelist, who has written screenplays for work starring three Bond actors, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, said that the "current Bond is fantastically interesting even though the current films are all contemporary".

His novel 'Solo' was recently published by Jonathan Cape, Fleming's original publisher and comes 60 years since the first original Bond novel 'Casino Royale' was released. ( ANI )
