Daniel Craig has been effective and controversial in his role as James Bond. He is the first blonde Bond, which really bothered some people (who conveniently forgot Sean Connery wore a toupee in all of his Bond films), and expertly brought out the dark, brooding, and broken side of 007. He is also getting grey around the temples, causing some to wonder if he is too old to play the part. Apparently, he isn’t.
After all the coy answers and speculation, Daniel Craig finally confirmed what we all expected.
I like Craig as Bond. He’s a no nonsense agent with a broken heart. He’s a fighter, though not invincible, and can pull of one liners without winking at the camera like Roger Moore. Craig says this will be his last outing as Bond but promises to go out on a high note. Rumors suggest the next Bond could be Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, or some other gritty Brit.
After filming “Spectre” Craig was noted to say, “I would rather slash my wrists than play James Bond again.” He has since changed his mind. The actor and his version of Bond are not known for grace as much as brute force, but, hey, he at least refused to compare the role to childbirth.
He went on to talk about his role in “Logan Lucky” and revealed how he got a cameo as a stormtrooper in “The Force Awakens.” Daniel Craig, y’all. He’s full of surprises.
