Thanks for chatting with me! Craig didn't do so well with us LSB blogggers..lets hope he surprises us and we like him! But I will have to wait for the video to find out!




I have to admit I was never a Pierce Bronson fan as BOND though my mother who turned 63 today turns into a teenager again when she sees him. Hearing his departure from the role all kinds of sexy actos game to mind for the role. I thought YES! 007 will become interesting again. I will WANT to see the next movie...

Then they made the announcement... DANIEL CRAIG?!!!! What the -?
I am so disappointed. I will not go to see that movie.

What about you? Vote for

Here is the press release....

Daniel Craig is Officially James Bond!
Source: Columbia Pictures, MGM October 14, 2005



It was announced today by producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. and Sony Pictures Entertainment, that Daniel Craig has been cast in the role of the legendary British secret agent, James Bond, in the highly anticipated 007 adventure thriller Casino Royale.

Casino Royale reunites Wilson and Broccoli with Martin Campbell, who directed the 1995 Bond blockbuster GoldenEye. His most recent film, The Legend of Zorro, will be released on October 28, 2005.

Casino Royale will be the 21st James Bond film produced by the franchise holders, EON Productions. The MGM/Columbia Pictures production begins shooting in January and is due for release worldwide on November 17, 2006. It will be filmed in the Czech Republic, the Bahamas, Italy and the UK.

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade wrote the screenplay based on famed author Ian Fleming's first novel. The script is currently being polished by Academy Award®-nominated writer, Paul Haggis (Million Dollar Baby).

Born in 1968, Daniel Craig was raised on the Wirral nr. Liverpool. He moved to London to join the National Youth Theatre at the age 17 and continued his training at the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Craig has since become regarded as one of Britain's finest actors securing a variety of roles in television, theatre and film.

He is currently filming a thriller alongside Nicole Kidman, The Visiting, and has two films in post-production; Steven Spielberg's Munich and Douglas McGrath's Every Word Is True, co-starring Sandra Bullock and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Recent film credits include Sam Mendes' The Road to Perdition, The Mother, Sylvia, and last year he received much critical acclaim for Matthew Vaughn's Layer Cake as well as Roger Michell's Enduring Love.

Wilson and Broccoli said "It has been a long time ambition for us to film the first book in the series, 'Casino Royale', which defined the complex character of James Bond. We are thrilled Daniel Craig will play the character of 007. Daniel is a superb actor who has all the qualities needed to bring a contemporary edge to the role. 'Casino Royale' will have all the action, suspense and espionage that our audiences have come to expect from us but nevertheless takes the franchise in a new and exciting direction."

"James Bond is a character without peer in motion picture history," said Pascal. "He is a household name recognized in virtually every corner of the globe and because of this renown, the casting of the new 007 takes on a special importance. We believe that in Daniel Craig we have found the ideal 21st century Bond and we couldn't be more privileged to be working with Barbara and Michael, who are tireless champions and guardians of the James Bond legacy."

Director Martin Campbell said, "The thing about James Bond is that each actor who has filled the role has brought his own style and imprint. With Daniel as our new Bond, I am thrilled to be returning to shepherd the new 007 in the new Bond adventure."

Dan Taylor, President of Metro Goldwyn Mayer Inc, said: "All of us here at MGM are delighted that Daniel Craig, an actor of such high-calibre, has been chosen to be the next Bond. We are also very excited to be working closely with Barbara and Michael again and with Columbia Pictures on 'Casino Royale', which we predict to be the biggest, best Bond ever."

I say NO! Pierce Bronson, Roger Moore and most definitely Sean Connery were great James Bonds. They were sexy and mysterious. Just looking into their eyes made you forget what problems were plaguing you in life. But this guy Daniel. No way! He isn't sexy, I mean he isn't a dog, but he doesn't have the air about him the other actors for the James Bond role did. I predict the movie may just flop.

CRAIG NO

It may be interesting to see how he portrays Bond, but he just doesn't seem very Bond-like. Sean Connery is my fave Bond.

Okay I know I already voted but NO lol! I so don't like him..Do you know they passed on ADRIAN PAUL! HELLO...now THAT is what SEX is all about!

I've never seen this Daniel Craig guy act, so I can't say either way, but I will admit he doesn't really look like a Bond.
I wonder if the producers wanted to go with a fairly unknown actor rather than any of the big names who were up for the part because of typecasting (both from before or as a result after...) I mean, Sean Connery, no matter what he does, will always be "Bond, James Bond"...
(and let's face it, will Pierce Brosnon ever get rid of Remington Steele? :) )

Daniel Craig who? Fergetit!

It's hard to say never having seen any of Daniel's acting. He doesn't look like Bond but his acting could make the difference. I guess I'll go with No for now.

Since I don't really know this Daniel actor, I'll withhold judgment at this time... However, I do believe that there will only be one TRUE Bond in my heart--Sean Connery. When you watch the original films, you about melt into your seat... He is truly one sexy Brit!! :)

(But I loved Pierce Brosnan as Remmington Steele. He just never was a great Bond IMO. He was slightly better than Timothy Dalton, though. George Lazenby I think did a good job with a not so hot script, but Roger Moore seemed asleep at the wheel in his later films.)

Craig-NO I am old enough to remember Sean Connery and Craig just doesn't measure up.

A definite no. He just doesn't appeal.

CRAIG NO

He is not my picture of James Bond! He's not sexy and doesn't have that classy feel to him. But, I will reserve final judgment though until I see the movie.

Not for the contest since I have all your LSB books, Lisa, but I said no to Craig when I first heard that - though to be fair I guess we can't really judge until we see him in it. I was sooo hoping it would have been Adrian Paul, too.

I agree, Sean Connery will always be Bond. I like Pierce, but he will always be Remington Steele. Didn't care for Roger Moore as Bond, couldn't stop thinking about him as The Saint.

Pam you have all my books AND you love Adrian Paul. LOL...I am loving you!! GRIN

I say NO to Craig. YES YES to Pierce Bronson.

I love Pierce. Always have and always will. He should have gotten it after Moore left-- Timothy Dalton never did it for me. But Pierce had that same sense of naughty humor that both Connery and Moore had. Sigh. I love a naughty man in -- well, just finish that sentence however you want.

So "no" to Craig.

However I will go -- I go to all the Bond movies.

He's not my idea of BOND, either. However...he may be after I see the movie. I'm pretty stuck on Sean Connery, at any age.

When hubby and I first heard the announcement we were very disappointed so you get a no vote from me. The guy just does not seem very Bondlike.

Rae, I do like Pierce. I don't usually care for too many movie remakes, but he was pretty good in The Thomas Crowne Affair.

You know I used to travel a lot and I heard and saw so may things. You fly 4 and 5 days a week and you see crazy things. But one day in the seat in front of me the ladies were talking about which stars by generation they would have a hot night with lol...Sean Connery got everyone's vote!

I want Sean. Now.
He's like Harrison Ford...the older they get, the better they look!

*Sigh* I'm just a Bond-a-holic.

I have a fear that Daniel Craig is going to be more Timothy Dalton-ish though so that will suck.

But, I'll still go see it in the theater. As long as Madonna doesn't do the theme song again - yuck!

Daniel as James Bond? No way he just doesnt have it going on. I much prefer Sean Connery. Now there was James Bond material. He was to die for. I loved his accent. Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Dalton all made great James Bond characters but I definetely prefered Sean. Oh baby he was hot!! I wont be seeing this new movie when it comes out. I used to love watching the James Bond movies.

No if he's blonde like in Tomb Raider - yes maybe if he darkens his hair like the pic you've shown above.

I don't know. None of them have lived up to Sean Connery anyway so it doesn't really bother me.

No not nix nien yuck! /what is the deal with Hollywood they can't seem to keep a Bond or a Batman! Quite frankly I am getting fed up with all the recasting.

6:01 PM  
Blogger Lisa Renee Jones said...

I heard they told Pierce he was too old and he was really not expecting to get booted. Now BATMAN.. I LOVE the new Batman! See the new Batman had me drooling and suddenly I want MORE! I was hoping Bond would be like that!

I always thought way before they made Pierce Bronson, James Bond that he would be perfect for the role. Roger Moore, and Sean Connery were both great for the part too. I just can't see Daniel Craig as James Bond though. Doesn't fit the picture that goes along with the role.

6:38 PM  
Blogger Deb F. said...

I say no to Daniel Craig. He does not look sexy and just doesn't have that James Bond appeal.

6:49 PM  
Blogger Lisa T said...

God NO! What were the producers thinking? He is not sexy. I will not be going to this movie.

6:50 PM  
Blogger KimW said...

hmmm...my first thought would be NO. But...he does look a little mysterious and I tend to think that how one behaves either makes them better looking or worse. Maybe he'll be so smooth in the movie that he'll grow on us. haha!

I kinda like Daniel Craig. In any case, I'm going to keep an open mind and see the movie anyway because I'm a fan of the Bond franchise in general. I was disappointed when the let Brosnan go, and more so when they didn't choose another dark, smoldering actor to replace him, but I'm perfectly willing to wait and see how Craig does.

7:43 PM  
Blogger Cynthya said...

NO. But I also am trying to keep an open mind. I like Sean Connery best, although I'm also fond of Pierce Brosnan.

absolutely not. Sean Connery set the bar high and I don't think anyone has managed to top him yet

I've never seen Daniel Craig act before, but he is not want I picture James Band to look like. Give me Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan any day or night. Adrian Paul would have made an awesome Bond. He's enough to make you turn into a puddle as well.

10:36 PM

No! I haven't seen any movie that he has played in. I liked Pierce Brosnan for the role, but I don't think Craig fits the role.

Did you know I never watched a James Bond movie, LOL But I heard a bit about this and saw Pierce Bronson talking about this and because he's cute, I think he is, LOL.

Daniel Craig as Bond? No Way! When I saw a picture of him, I thought he was very unappealing looking! I could hardly believe that he was chosen as the new James Bond. He just is not what I think James Bond should look like. Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan just had that "sexy something" that made them so appealing to me. I think that if they had to replace Pierce Brosnan they could have chosen someone better. So no, I don't think I will want to see this film.
