"We can both do it," John jokingly said.

He suggested Idris could be James Bond and he could play James Bond Jr.

Not going to lie, we love that suggestion.

However, on a more serious note John admitted he's probably too young to be considered for the role of 007 right now.

"For me, at 25-years-old, James Bond, I'm a bit too young for it now," he admitted.

The star also noted Daniel Craig is still the one playing 007.

"But Daniel Craig is not done yet," he said. "We still get to enjoy him in at least one more film, I hope."

For now, John is 'cool' starring in films like Star Wars and his upcoming flick Pacific Rim Uprising which is out in Australia on March 22, 2018.
