Angelina Jolie is convinced BEYOND BORDERS co-star CLIVE OWEN should be the next James Bond.

The couple play lovers in the new movie, and Jolie couldn't help but fall in love with the British actor while they were working together.

She thinks Owen will bring a fresh, fatherly feel to the 007 franchise should he take over from Pierce Brosnan, as has been reported.

She says, "I don't think we've had a really great strong leading man like this in a long time.

"He's a great guy, great family man, two kids, a wife. He's lovely."

Meanwhile, Jolie is also thrilled with the prospect of working with new dad Colin Farrell on Oliver Stone's ALEXANDER THE GREAT epic.

She adds, "I just saw him for rehearsals and it was a few days after his son was born, and all he could talk about was being a dad. He's just a crazy, happy dad."
