Daniel Craig interview online

DanielCraig.jpgThere's an interview with Craig Daniels online, I was going to be heading off to see him on screen yesterday but that got waylaid until today...and once again it's been waylaid, so I think perhaps tomorrow. Anyway, Bond is out and there's a cracking interview with Mr Craig, Mr Daniel Craig (it doesn't matter what colour his hair is) online.

Thanks to Michael at MoviesOnline for giving us the heads up to the interview he scored, here are a few quotes before you head over and read the full thing. First up Craig talks about how he just couldn't say no to Bond...

The script was great. I got it and I read it and I thought, ‘I’d be a fool not to have a go at this.’ Hindsight is a very easy thing to say, but I was going, ‘If I don’t do this, you’re going to regret not having a go at this,’ because he is one of the biggest, iconographic [characters] in movie history...this came along and Barbara Broccoli is very persuasive. She made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

I'm sure she did. Then comes an interesting quote, he says he's signed for three films and it doesn't sound like he's talking a simple retention clause, this sounds like solid stone three films. I think they might persuade him for maybe two more after that if all goes well.

He talks about the film, the process, and the work involved, some His Dark Materials, and a few other things. He even discusses how he felt when people were slagging him off on the Internet for being Bond, but give him his dues he said he got it, he understood the passion, and that only the film could speak for him. Right now I believe it's shouting. There are sold out performances at my usual multiplex for it, and I haven't seen three sold out shows in a row for a very long time.

He talks about the new weaknesses showing in Bond and how he doesn't want to see an indestructible character, something Bond very much was for a long time...until Dalton and the later Brosnan.

If I play any character I want to see a weakness within them, because I want to see how they cope with that, how they dealt with it. I don’t want to watch two-dimensional characters when I go to the cinema. I want to watch rounded people make decisions, and I can’t believe that they’d make a decision that they’re Teflon-coated. That doesn’t interest me.

Oh, and he says Connery is the main man for him as Bond. I think he's being modest, I think he may have just blown all the competition out of the water, but we have to see what happens with the next few, don't we?



What have I been doing in November that I have missed so many of these news???

still hello.

if this is an interview than here is my quetion do you like playing bond?

if this is a chat board then hello.
who is wierd.
sorry that was random.
i must tell you one thing i am no angel and i am no devil either i am a bit of both i suppose. and if this is a chat board than you should add more things on it. well if it isn't i understand.
You must know this people if this is a chat board then you must know this. i am a very random person one minute i will be basically play fighting or kicking anything i see that i can kick and then the next minute i will be running around like a headless chicken. that is not good. it is very annoying if someone is trying to play a game and then someone else comes along and pulles you half way across the floor. which is not fun but the good thing is you don't mind well you have to have patience to be like that. i used to be scared of a football people but i am not anymore cause i have changed. one of my friends doesn't like it cause i am too rough with her apparently. and she says you shouldn't be watching films that have violence in it you should be watching daisy the cow goes for a walk down by the lake and that is so not me.
if this is a chat board than it should make you laugh if not than well you will just have to laugh anyway. mr and my friend were dressing up as people cause we were interviewing each other. well we got called for dinner and the most silliest person that would be me got a ribbon stuck around her neck and couldn't get it off and my friend says go to dinner like that no way i would look totally silly my friend was dressing up as a mad woman and i was dressing up as james bond and i was hopping round the room trying to get my ribbon off my neck and at last it came off. trust me people never put a ribbon around your neck and tie it in a bow because you can never get it off. anyway i hope that was a chat borad cause i am sorry if it wasn't i gotta go read casino royale so laters
