It’s official: Daniel Craig is the new James Bond. The first blonde 007, and…the shortest. Sorry but I had to throw that in. I’ve stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Connery, Moore, Brosnan and Craig and I know whereof I speak. But this is easily maskable on-screen. Craig told journos at this morning’s London press conference that the Casino Royale script (I presume he means the revised one by Paul Haggis) is “incredible” and “once I’d read that, I realized that I didn’t have a choice. I had to go for it.” I still say a film can only be as good as the most clueless powerful person on the above-the-line team, and not even a good script can entirely overcome the influence of…well, I’m repeating myself.
