Frankie Muniz

Frankie Muniz on "Agent Cody Banks 2" DVD release -- The actor discusses the DVD's extras, James Bond movies, and his martial-arts training

On Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, you and your costars pop up during the movie for a visual cast commentary. Never seen that before!

We're the first to do it. The interactive thing makes you feel more with the commentator. I think it's definitely better for kids, and for everyone. Hopefully, people will copy our idea.

Which James Bond movie is your favorite?

I guess the latest one -- ''Die Another Day,'' with Halle Berry. Just because of the cars. I haven't seen all the James Bond movies, but I'm really into cars.

With all the martial-arts training you did for this sucker, is your body still a lethal weapon?

It's really funny -- I've lost 25 pounds of muscle since I stopped training. I can barely lift my leg above my hips anymore. You gotta keep it up.

So when will you complete the Cody Banks trilogy?

I'm not sure there's gonna be a third. But it was fun. Maybe in the future I can play James Bond!
