From 1D to 007? Harry Styles admits in a new radio interview that he'd love to play James Bond on the big screen. “Yeah, I mean, who wouldn’t?" the former boy bander said when asked about taking on the iconic spy role. "I grew up watching those [films>. You know, I loved him when I was a kid. So I think it’s kind of everyone’s dream a little bit, right?” He also explained that he turned down the role of Prince Eric in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid due to scheduling concerns. “They shoot for so long, and I wanna tour next year," he said, before quickly clarifying that a 2020 tour isn't set in stone. "Don't know--that's potentially. Maybe not. I haven’t announced that yet, but maybe," he added. "It just didn’t quite line up.”
