Cleese Champions Davenport For Bond Role

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."
