Rami Malek has teased he could be the next Bond villain as he revealed hes keeping tight-lipped about the whole thing.

Weve been expecting you, Mr Malek.

The Bohemian Rhapsody star raised suspicions that he might be following in the footsteps of Javier Bardem, Robert Davi and Robert Carlyle, when he was asked if hed consider playing the role.

Well have to see about that – it would be nice to play a villain, that would be another dream role for me, he replied.

Ive got to play so many great ones so far so who knows.

The 37-year-old added to ET: Im keeping tight-lipped.

Its not the first weve heard of it, as Variety reported he was sparking Bond bosses interest back in December.

According to the site, show bosses were keen on getting the Mr Robot star on board in the forthcoming Bond 25 alongside Daniel Craig, in his next outing as 007.

The website has noted insider sources who claimed he was sparking interest from the casting crew, however his schedule for the last season of his TV show made it unlikely he would get the gig.

Rami, you had our curiosity, but now you have our attention.

Its not the only thing Ramis keeping tight-lipped about, as he also teased the very, very climatic ending to Mr Robot.

My mouth was agape after he told me how the season ended. So, its going to be a very, very, climatic ending to what I think has been four great seasons of television.

Its just been an honour to work with Christian and Sam, and play this character, he added.

Were sure a bit of Bond would solve his woes about Mr Robot ending.
