Daniel Craig Returning as James Bond in 4 More Films!
We already know Daniel Craig will be returning as James Bond in the 22nd film that's currently shooting and due out next November, but that's not his last one. MGM president Harry Sloan has confirmed that they're bringing back Daniel Craig for four more James Bond films, making him the star in at least five total. How does he shape up to the other Bond actors over the years?
So far I'm quite impressed with Craig as Bond, but he still doesn't beat Roger Moore or even Sean Connery. He has a very new and different style that's much more rugged and much more muscular. Here are all the other films each Bond actors has done.
Sean Connery - 6
Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever
George Lazenby - 1
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Roger Moore - 7
Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill
Timothy Dalton - 2
The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill
Pierce Brosnan - 4
GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day
Daniel Craig - 5+
Casino Royale, Bond 22 - 25
This definitely looks positive and I'm glad to see the Bond franchise continue to grow with Craig in the lead. I know he'll bring us some great Bonds films, especially considering Casino Royale was one of the most successful Bond films ever. Craig is really building quite a career for himself starring in a number of other non-Bond movies as well, including the upcoming Golden Compass. This is quite impressive considering Roger Moore couldn't carry another major film role while he was doing his Bond's and never went on to anything else afterward. Craig also has likely starring roles in upcoming Fame, Death Wish and Thomas Crown Affair franchise films.
Who do you think is the greatest James Bond? Does Daniel Craig top the list?
