BREAKING NEWS!!!... New Bond Named!!!

British actor Daniel Craig picked as new James Bond

Wed Apr 6, 7:49 AM ET Entertainment - AFP



LONDON (AFP) - The producers of the hugely successful James Bond film franchise have chosen British actor Daniel Craig to take over the role of the suave super-spy, a report said.





The 37-year-old has been offered a three-film deal by Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and is expected to sign up formally in the next few weeks, The Sun newspaper reported Wednesday.


Craig, a tough-looking character actor who has mixed up appearances in many art-house titles with roles in blockbusters such as "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider", just beat fellow Briton Clive Owen for the role, the report said.


Craig would be the sixth Bond in the official series of films based on the novels by Ian Fleming, following Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and most recent incumbent Pierce Brosnan.


According to The Sun, Owen -- nominated for an Oscar this year for film "Closer" -- had told casting agents he did not want the job, although Broccoli was already favouring Craig.


While Craig remains relatively unknown outside Britain, he is well respected as an actor and also has the necessary reputation for being something of a Bond-esque ladies man, having recently dated supermodel Kate Moss.


Citing an unnamed "movie source", The Sun said that staff working at Eon Productions, which makes the Bond movies, had been told Craig would star in the next films.


"Daniel is the new 007. He is going through the deal with his lawyers. It's a big commitment for a minimum of 10 years, but he has indicated he will take the job," the source said.


Brosnan's last film as Bond was "Die Another Day" in 2002. Since then a string of possible replacements have been mooted, including Britons Jude Law and Ewan McGregor and Australian actors Hugh Jackman and Eric Bana.


Fleming's novels chronicling the adventures of the British spy codenamed 007 were first turned into a film in 1962, with "Dr No".

BC... thanks, but I wouldn't call it breaking news.

From my understanding (http://www.mi6.co.uk/news/index.php?itemid=2291) the Sun made this rumor up (as is also said in your article), up till now that newspaper is known for doing nothing but writing gossips and blabant lies.
As mi6 said: they also said Colin Salmon would be the next Bond.

Especially the comparison with what their rivals did with Clive strenghtens me to believe that it's nothing but what they usualy write: gossip and lies

Now I'm really confused.... Anyway, my choice for Bond is Hugh Jackman. Daniel Craig doesn't look any closer from being a '00' agent... smokin'

Well, he doesn't look like any kind of Bond here in this photo. He looks all made up here for whatever role the film he is in requires him to be. With the makeup and the acting required, we'll see if he can somehow zero in and perform the role of a James Bond in a way that can possibly be believable, agreeable, and entertaining to the audience.

Remember how people were very skeptical about having Hugh Jackman as Wolverine before the first X-man movie.
