Robbie Williams Tells Soccer AM He Wants To Play James Bond
Who could forget his memorable audition during the video for 'Millennium', right?
Appearing via video link to chat to host John 'Fenners' Fendley, Williams performed a bizarre rendition of Technotronic's 1989 dance hit 'Pump Up The Jam' in the style of an army commander to prove that he's got what it takes to make it in Hollywood.
Fair play to him, he's out there giving it a shot, but it's not likely to happen. I've never retracted my offer to become the supreme ruler of the Universe, but I'm not expecting the phone to ring any time soon.
It's a bit like auditioning to become the President of the United States by appearing on some sort of hammed-up reality TV show, but something like that would never happen, would it?
Anyway, Fenners questioned Robbie about his ambitions, and asked him if he was actually serious about it, and it seems that he almost certainly isn't, but would like to pretend that he is.
He said: "I tell you what, I'll throw my hat into the ring right now to be James Bond because people think that I'm just like a cheeky chappy, but I've got range.
"People don't know that about me. So, for example, I'm about to lead the troops over the hill into battle - are you ready?"
"Imagine me on a horse, and there's 10,000 men on horses in front of me..."

That's when he launched headfirst into his version of 'Pump Up The Jam' in the style of an old-time warrior king.
Not sure exactly what that's got to do with James Bond, but you can't fault the guy for trying.
This isn't the first time that he's tried to convince the 007 team to consider him for the role that Daniel Craig is to vacate after No Time To Die.
Speaking back in May, Williams said: "I want to throw my hat into the ring and be the next James Bond... but people don't know what type of range I have got.
"I have range as an actor, this cheeky thing is all an act.
"I am earnest and I seldom crack a smile in real life. I think very deeply.
"So yeah, I would like to throw my hat into the ring for the role of James Bond.
"People don't take me seriously and they should."
Can't imagine why that might be, Rob.
