It's Official: Daniel Craig is 007

by | October 14, 2005 | Comments shares with us the long-in-coming announcement, and it’s one that shouldn’t stun any of the astute movie geeks: British actor Daniel Craig has been signed to play everyone’s favorite superspy, James Bond. The next 007 adventure, "Casino Royale," goes before the cameras early next year.

Mr. Craig is probably best known for his excellent performance in Matthew Vaughn‘s "Layer Cake," but the guy’s been doing great character work for years.

After making his cinematic debut in John Avildsen‘s "The Power of One" (1992), Craig appeared in such films as "Elizabeth" (1998), "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001), "Road to Perdition" (2002), "Sylvia" (2003), "Enduring Love" (2004), and "The Jacket" (2005). The actor just finished work on Steven Spielberg‘s "Munich" and is now filming Oliver Hirschbiegel‘s thriller "The Visiting."

Let the Bond discussions begin in full swing, but we think Mr. Craig is a fine choice. Now all the producers have to do is replace their screenwriters and we just might get a Bond adventure that’s worthy of the legendary character.
