Responding to an online survey by auction site Preloved -- in which Dizzee was named the most popular choice to be the first black James Bond -- the rapper agreed at the London film premiere for the Infidel that he'd be perfect for the role.
Dizzee, who won 67 percent of the vote to beat Hollywood actor Will Smith into second place, said, "Why not, man? I can rock a tuxedo. The whole nation's seen that. I've just got to get my lines right, that's all."
The 'Bonkers' star, who was speaking to the News of the World, also said, "That one needs to be done. First black James Bond, it needs to be done. And who better to do it?"
The Brit Award winner also joked that he may get Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt to help him get the role, saying, "I actually saw him a few weeks ago at Claudia Schiffer's house -- so I might get that James Bond role after all -- pull a few strings and that."
Other people who made the list in the black Bond online survey included Barack Obama, Jay-Z and Formula One racing champion Lewis Hamilton.
Dizzee Rascal is set to appear at several UK festivals this summer including the 40th anniversary Glastonbury bash and this year's Bestival.
