Some Tall Guy Wants to be James Bond

With the future of 007 now coming into view, lots of production questions are on the table, the obvious one being: who will fill Daniel Craigs shoes? Something that is becoming certain is the fact that Craig will not return for the next Bond because he is committed to David Fincher for the millennium trilogy, so where does that leave 007?
In the dog house, if this future becomes a reality.
Some guy named David Haye wants to be Bond. He's some heavyweight champion or something like that, but the bottom line is this- he's 6'3.
Here's a picture of the bastard.

I don't want to sound judgmental, but seriously folks. Is it really, honestly realistic to have a Bond that's over 6'2? He thinks he can just stroll right in and dwarf all the other Bonds, and make everybody look like an idiot?
Conveniently, there's an image on google that illustrates my concern.

Do you see what I mean? Maybe I'm overreacting. I just can't help but think about how much this would change the image of James Bond. SIX THREE, FOR CREPES CRIPES SAKE. Bond drives an aston martin, not some range rover with no roof so his head has some room to breathe. 
For now, this is only rumor, but this giant has gone on the record saying that he wants to put his hat in the ring for the next double O. Everybody probably shat their pants when this Goliath petitioned himself to be in the next movie. 'Sure,' some higher up probably said, 'Come on in, of course we'd like to discuss it with you!' At that point he probably attempted to lighten the mood. 'How's the weather up there?' He was never heard from again. That man was Amelia Earheart.
Hopefully Craig will chip off a few months to devote to being Bond again, as he is technically contractually obligated to three more movies. But with MGM in rehab, I don't know how the contract department is keeping track of obligations and that kind of stuff. I'm no lawyer.
Is it just me, or is this a little unrealistic? I had to share.
