(Newser) – He’s already king of rap and has his own fashion line, record label, movie production company, and restaurant—but that’s not enough for Diddy: He wants to be the black version of James Bond, reports the New York Post. Sean Combs tells Britain’s Observer that in the next 007 flick, he should play the British icon’s “counterpart in the United States.”

“I think that James Bond from London should be sent on a mission to come to New York and he should meet me, black Bond,” Diddy said. “He should get kidnapped, and I should have to save his ass.”
