Officially Official: Daniel Craig returning for Bond 25


There was a bit of a kerfuffle yesterday when Daniel Craig mentioned on a radio interview that nothing was finalized with him being in Bond 25. Turns out that was a lie as the actor had obviously agreed to super duper double officially confirm he’s taking the role on the Colbert show. You can watch him do it below, and explain why he was just so grumpy after filming Spectre

The most interesting part, however, comes at the end when Craig mentions that he wants to go out on a high note. Does this means he shares the general public’s opinion on Spectre? We all know it was a bit of a letdown, and Craig came out of it saying he’d rather slash his wrists than do another Bond so… maybe his desire to conclude on a better note drove him back into Bond’s loving arms. Of course history is against him. Most Bonds don’t go out on a high note at all (Diamonds Are Forever, A View to a Kill, Die Another Day). 

Confirmed! Daniel Craig Will Return As James Bond
