Martin Freeman has declared his appearance in Wild Target is his "Bond moment".

The British actor plays dastardly hitman Dixon, and gets to shoot guns opposite Bill Nighy, who plays his arch-nemesis in the killing world.

"People always think of me as an assassin or a butch gun guy," he joked. "I treat this film as my showreel for Bond, this is my Bond moment."

The actor added: "It was good fun. I would do it again, I'm only going to do it again."

Martin also joked about Bill working so much.

"He's very cheap. That's why he's so universally loathed," he quipped.

Their outing in the British comedy is their fifth time on screen together, and the Nativity star is looking forward to many more.

"It'll be nice to do longer scenes with Bill. I wanted to do this because I found out Bill is in it, and I know he's got good taste," he said.

:: Wild Target is in cinemas now.
