Blond Bond

This just in from London: Danny Craig is officially the new James Bond. The 37 year old actor will be the 6th actor to to play the British superspy. The next Bond film is "Casino Royale," due in theaters in November 2006.

"I had a couple of martinis when I found out," Craig said.

Craig's name, the subject of speculation for weeks, was revealed as he was whisked down the River Thames aboard a military speedboat to a waterside news conference.

Producer Michael G. Wilson said 200 actors had been considered, but Craig was the only one who had been offered the role.

"I am looking most forward to actually starting getting on with it, and feeling intimidated about pretty much everything," Craig said. "It is a sort of responsibility, but it is also a huge adventure."

Back to 007...

I've read that some "die-hard" Bond purists are very upset at an 'ugly' actor being cast as Bond. I guess they've never actually read any of the oriiginal novels which describe Bond being scarred on his face...

and I've had it explained to me by a Special Operations Captain that the facial scarring is in fact the reason why all the villains recognise him.
Three cheers for the 'ugly' Bond ... lets hope he's a bastard on screen too!

Keep your fantasies to yourself, overseer :-)
