Bond regular John Cleese has cast his vote for who should replace PIERCE BROSNAN as the world's favourite super spy - British TALENTED MR RIPLEY actor Jack Davenport.

Cleese - who plays gadget man Q in the legendary franchise - is good friends with Davenport's father and is convinced that he, and not hot favourite Clive Owen, should take on the coveted part.

He says, " I wouldn't mind seeing Jack Davenport playing Bond. He's a kid I worked with in the past and the son of a good friend of mine. Good little actor. He co-starred in Pirates Of The Caribbean last summer. He's got my vote."
