Hollywood hunk Paul Walker has denied he will be the next James Bond when Pierce Brosnan quits - because 007 can't say 'dude'.

2 FAST 2 FURIOUS star Paul - who's a blonde surfing freak in real life - is being amused by reports he's next in line for the role of the famous spy, although he would like to drive some of Bond's fancy automobiles.

Paul, 29, says, "I have heard the stories and it cracks me up. It sounds good in principle, but what happens when I open my mouth? We can't have James Bond calling everyone 'Dude'!

"So Pierce can sleep easy tonight and IAN FLEMING can stop spinning in his grave. But can I have some of Bond's cars?"
