Daniel Craig would only do a gay scene in the new James Bond movie if he was guaranteed an Oscar, says his 'Layer Cake' co-star.
Tamer Hassan - who appeared alongside Daniel in Matthew Vaughn's 2004 British gangster film - believes Daniel would get frisky with another man in upcoming 007 adventure 'Quantum of Solace' if it fulfilled his Academy Award dream.
He told BANG Showbiz: "That's Daniel dying for an Oscar. Ever since 'Brokeback Mountain' everyone wants to have a gay scene to win an Oscar.
"You couldn't get me doing that though - my son would never forgive me! I've got a 16-year-old son, so can you imagine? He would get ridiculed for it. And he's at a professional soccer club too - can you imagine the dressing room banter?! So, no, they couldn't get me doing that. They can keep the Oscar and I'll keep my virginity!"
Tamer - who can soon be seen in Hammer Films' first movie for 30 years, 'Beyond The Rave' which is to be broadcast on myspace.tv - also said he is keen to play Bond when the producers look beyond Daniel.
The 'Eastern Promises' star, whose parents are of Turkish-Cypriot descent, added: "I would love to be Bond. But I don't think they are ready to put a Turkish man in a 007 suit yet. If they do change their minds I'm sure I will be one of the first ones in the hat."
