Daniel Craig dropped some foul-mouthed advice for the next James Bond star
Today, March 2, 2023, Daniel Craig turns 55. And while the star is best known for playing James Bond, he had his 007 tux dry-cleaned in 2021 after the release of No Time To Die. Since then, he has tried to avoid talking about his successor. But he has offered them some advice, whoever he is.
Craig spoke with Sun about the next Bond star during the release window of No Time To Die. He opened up about the advice he would give: “There are a couple of things I would say. One is: don’t be shit.”
He continued: “I would say you have to grab it and make it your own. I hope I put it in a good place and I hope the next person can make it fly.”
The British star could not help but praise that series that he starred in for 15 years over five films: “It’s an incredible franchise. I still think there are many stories to tell.”
Most recently, he was once again asked who will replace him, and he gave some surprising insight into the selection process.
On his last day of shooting, Craig emotionally told the cast and crew of No Time To Die: “A lot of people here worked on five movies with me, and I know a lot has been said about what I think about these movies or all of those movies. , whatever. I’ve loved every second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve gotten up every morning and had the opportunity to work with you.”
Wiping a tear from his face, Craig added that “it’s been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
Meanwhile, Bond’s odds have gotten busier as many new stars join the fray.
At the moment, Aaron Taylor-Johnson is at the top of the leaderboard with a staggering 13/8 in donning the tuxedo.
His popularity follows rumors that Taylor-Johnson has already been screen tested as the hero.
A source at the time said: “Aaron has impressed the bosses so much that he filmed one of the franchise’s famous gun barrel teaser scenes, something all actors do. That move takes him one step closer to signing a deal. Bosses at the brand were genuinely impressed with his unique blend of acting intensity and his impressive catalog of action films.”
