Looks like today’s a busy day for "Casino Royale," what with its first review hitting the ‘net, plus there’s a new music video, a DVD release date, and some now-confirmed gossip about what Scottish actor turned DOWN the role of 007.
From Dark Horizons: "An early review of "Casino Royale" has gone up at The Sun and proclaims Daniel Craig "the best Bond since Connery… Craig makes Brosnan look a bit girlie in comparison". The paper also singles out the action sequences (notably the free running sequence), assorted performances and director Martin Campbell.
Also it’s officially been confirmed by UK newspaper The Mirror & Director Martin Campbell that Ewan McGregor was the first choice for the role of James Bond but he turned the producers down."
