"I would act if the right role came along. But I'm not looking to do it because there are not that many great roles that would be something different for me to play, to conquer. I don't know, I never say never, like James Bond or something."

Clint Eastwood will next direct Leonardo DiCaprio and Judi Dench in the biopic J. Edgar. At this time, there is no word that he will be appearing in the film.
