Daniel Craig lacks the panache to be James Bond, says Dick Van Dyke

London, Sept 2 : Screen legend Dick Van Dyke has revealed that he doesn't think Daniel Craig is right for the role of James Bond.


The 'Bye Bye Birdie' star said that he considered Craig to be a 'wonderful actor' with 'great physicality', but he was missing a certain something required for the acclaimed part, Metro.co.uk reported.

The 87-year-old actor also revealed that he was considered to play the spy.

He said that when Sean Connery had talked about dropping out of Bond flick, Cubby Broccoli approached him and asked if he was interested in the role.

Van Dyke however turned down the offer, saying that he didn't have a proper British accent.
