Daniel Craig has some very strong thoughts about who should play iconic international super-spy next -- namely, he does not give a single s--t who slips into the impeccably tailored suit next.
In a candid interview with Time Out London, Craig said that "the Bond bank is dry."
Asked if he'd consider doing another Bond movie post-"SPECTRE," Craig had a strong answer: death would be preferable.
"Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment," he said. "Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on."
Which is sad news for us, because, hey, we like the poise and dry humor he's brought to 007 for the past decade or so. He's perfectly steely, and we'd trust him with state secrets any time.
Later in the interview, he remarks, "If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money."
Oh, OK. As for advice for the next Bond, Craig was similarly blunt. "Don't be s--t," he said.
And who should it be, Mr. Craig?
"Look, I don’t give a f--k. Good luck to them! All I care about is that if I stop doing these things we’ve left it in a good place and people pick it up and make it better. Make it better, that’s all."
"SPECTRE" hits theaters November 6.
