Daniel Craig Says He'll Play James Bond as Long as He Can!
Daniel Craig is my favorite James Bond aside from Sean Connery, so I am happy for this news. The BBC is reporting that Craig stated that he would "keep going until they tell [him] to stop." Skyfall has been getting a lot of buzz, especially because it is opening in celebration of Bond's 50th anniversary this year.
Craig stated that they are "going to put on a good show," and added that although he wants to "leave his mark" on the franchise, he knows that he will have to give up the role in the future.
"I know there'll be someone after me, and hopefully someone after them - I'm just trying to keep [the series] going."
As a Bond fan, I have been super excited for Skyfall, which will be Craig's third outing as Bond. The film was delayed because of MGM's financial troubles, but that does not mean that production fully stopped. Craig stated that action was still going on behind the scenes:
"We haven't been resting on our laurels, we've been plotting what to do with this film," he said.
"The first one was a whirr - it was a new experience and flew by - the second one was the tricky second album, but this one we've really planned and got a great script.
"It's going to be different from the last one, but it will still be a great Bond movie."
Sam Mendes directs the film that also stars Javier Bardem, Albert Finney, and Ralph Fiennes, and has Dame Judi Dench reprising her the role as M. Are you happy to hear that Craig is not going to be leaving the franchise anytime soon?
