Actor Daniel Craig is probably leaving his producers and studio shaken and stirred with his latest comments on his future as James Bond.

Weeks before the Nov. 6 release of his Bond flick, "Spectre," the British actor told Time Out London that if he did renew his onscreen license to kill, "it would only be for the money."

"Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists," he told the magazine about the speculation about the next Bond film. "No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."

"Spectre" marks Craig's fourth tour of duty as 007, tying him with Pierce Brosnan as the third longest-tenured bond behind Roger Moore (seven films) and Sean Connery (six films).

He is still under contract for a fifth movie, but it is not likely producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson would not stand in his way if he wanted to leave. Part of the issue for Craig is that he feels there are just so many times he can be expected to save the world.

"'Every idea I've had for a Bond movie, I've stuck into this one," said the 47-year-old actor. "It's gone in. The Bond bank is dry. If you're asking me what would I do with another Bond movie? I haven't a clue. Go into space? Let's do it! They already did it. Let's do it again." Both Tom Hardy and Hugh Jackman expressed interest in the part.

Craig himself doesn't seem to be willing to provide an endorsement.

"Literally I'd say two things. Firstly, it's your decision," Craig told Time Out London. " Don't listen to anybody else. Well, do listen to everybody, but you have to make the choice at the end of the day. It's your bed to lie on.

"And don't be s---! Don't be s---. You've got to step up. People do not make movies like this anymore. This is really rare now. So don't be s---."

I wonder if he is bipolar. One minute he's going to be Bond for a million years, the next...well, this.

Perhaps it's the stress of just completing a film, but if Craig is that tired of being Bond, then let him leave already. The last thing we need is an aging Craig who's bored out of his skull, he's already dull enough as it is.

Unlike Roger Moore, I can't see Craig being enthusiastic about Bond years from now. After 30 years, Moore still fondly talks about the Bond series and appreciates being part of it. He doesn't swear when being interviewed, and he enjoys answering questions from the fans even if they do get a bit repetitive.

I really do believe there is something wrong with Craig. This interview gives us a real Freudian view in to his psyche.



"Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists," he told the magazine about the speculation about the next Bond film. "No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."

First he's ready to commit suicide rather than make another Bond, then in the same breath reaffirms that's how he feels at the moment, meaning there is room for a change of heart.


He is still under contract for a fifth movie, but it is not likely producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson would not stand in his way if he wanted to leave. Part of the issue for Craig is that he feels there are just so many times he can be expected to save the world.

Poor Craig they really pulled the bait and switch on him, how was he to know playing James Bond would require him to "save the world" each film.

"'Every idea I've had for a Bond movie, I've stuck into this one," said the 47-year-old actor. "It's gone in. The Bond bank is dry. If you're asking me what would I do with another Bond movie? I haven't a clue.

So it's Craig's franchise now?

Daniel Craig's EON Productions Present
Daniel Craig as
Daniel Craig's interpretation of
Ian Fleming's James Bond in
Daniel Craig's Crap Du Jour



Go into space? Let's do it! They already did it. Let's do it again."
This comes off as the ranting's of a man at the end of his rope. Just screaming "You want to do it?! Let's do it! Come on do it! DO IT!!!!"


"Literally I'd say two things. Firstly, it's your decision," Craig told Time Out London. " Don't listen to anybody else. Well, do listen to everybody, but you have to make the choice at the end of the day. It's your bed to lie on.
This statement tells me Craig didn't want Bond but was talked in to it by someone else, and that's why he's so resentful of the character.

"And don't be s---! Don't be s---. You've got to step up. People do not make movies like this anymore.(You mean cheap knock offs of other franchises?) This is really rare now. So don't be s---."
Too bad he didn't take his own advise.

Yes Saint, that's because Rodger is a class act, and Craig is, well to put it mildly, not.

Money talks (sadly), atleast Eccleston after he thought he didn't fit in doc who left after one series, Craig will more likely be bond till....I don't know but it's depressing thinking about it.. :evil:

Daniel Craig has gone completely emo. Actually, it's gone way past emo, at this point. Everyone in his life should be seriously concerned about him if he is truly serious with what he's saying.

I have visions of Daniel Craig going postal, and let me tell you that is not a pleasant prospect.

maybe he was sarcastic saying I've only done four movies as in that for him is a lot , he hasn't made but two movies in what 5 years

But he does sound bipolar . If pierce had said that promoting dad I would be happy if he left, dalton never said crap like that the worst he said he was afraid it might be the last bond, Craig come out and talk like this and as a fan of bond I be happy if he was fired tomorrow , we'd probably get idris or captain winters but that is better than this

Does anyone think this finishes him as bond? Does it only endear him more to his loyal fans ?

I can't see Barbara ditching him but then again I don't think the standard best dress awards eon usually pays for are flooding him this outing .

What they could do is give the part to an actor who would genuinely appreciate the role and afford it the respect it deserves.

Tweet from Angry Salmond (an Alex Salmond parody account): "It's good to know Daniel Craig feels the same way about playing James Bond as I do about watching him as James Bond."
