Move over Matt Damon, James Marsden wants to be the next spy hero.

"I'd love to. Jason Bourne, James Bond, Transporter, any of those great spy thrillers," he revealed at the Hollywood premiere of his new movie Cats And Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore.

James confessed he wants to update some spy classics.

"Actually there are a lot of movies from the 70s that I would love to be a part of if they remake them, like Three Days Of The Condor, Marathon Man, just great spy thrillers," he said.

He added: "I'd love to do something like that."

In his new family film the actor voices Diggs, a dog who is enlisted by a secret canine spy agency to go on a special mission, and said he had fun voicing an animal secret agent.

"It's as if the cats and the dogs and all of our pets at home are putting on tuxedos and going to save the world. I just thought it was a really funny, interesting concept that our pets can speak when we're not looking," he explained.
