With the news of the latest James Bond book "Solo" arriving on shelves this week, author William Boyd already has a good idea as to who will take over the role of the famed spy.

The Huffington Post reported that Boyd, who wrote the latest book in the popular series created by Ian Fleming, said in an interview that, "If there was going to be an actor to play my James Bond, I'd choose another actor who's been in a film of mine and who is also called Daniel. Daniel Day-Lewis actually resembles the Bond that Fleming describes."

Boyd was referring to Daniel Craig, who currently portays James Bond on the big screen and worked with Day-Lewis on the 1988 film, "Stars and Bars."

Day-Lewis has not expressed any interest in the role thus far.

After his award-winning portrayal of President Abraham Lincoln in the 2012 film "Lincoln," he announced that he wanted to take a break from acting for a few years.

However, things can always change and we may see Daniel Day-Lewis return to the silver screen as the new 007.
