Zac Efron wants to play a villain in a 'James Bond' movie.

The ‘Me and Orson Welles’ actor – who is best known for his role as clean-cut student Troy Bolton in the ‘High School Musical’ franchise – loves the series of films about the iconic British spy and wants a role in the next addition in the franchise, which currently stars Daniel Craig as the lead character.

He said: “I’m a huge James Bond fan. I’d love to be a Bond baddie. I’ve seen pretty much every Bond film. Sean Connery is my favourite and I really like ‘Goldeneye’ with Pierce Brosnan.”

As well as playing a villain, 22-year-old Zac also wants to be seduced by an older woman on the big screen, revealing his ideal part would be to star in a remake of ‘The Graduate’.

Asked about his dream movie roles, he told Absolute Radio host Christian O’Connell: “I’m still waiting for that script and that director. I like a lot of movies from the 70s. A movie I just saw again and one of my favourites is ‘The Graduate’.”
