Bond villains are the most famous in the world and now an already famous physicist wants to join their team.

FOX News Radio's Michelle Pollino reports.

Stephen Hawking wants to play a Bond villain.

(Hawking) "The universe can spontaneously create itself out of nothing."

The 72-year-old physicist told Wired magazine the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part.

Rumors, however, suggest he's facing off against another baddie-- Christoph Waltz, for the main antagonist role in the next Bond film.

But, Hawking onscreen isn't quite so far-fetched. He's already appeared in episodes of Star Trek and The Simpsons.
