You can shed those tears now. If you wanted another confirmation that Daniel Craig is finally, absolutely, most certainly not doing another James Bond film, here it is. His good friend and colleague Mark Strong has said that Craig is finally shedding that tuxedo.
When asked whether he’d be up for playing a villain in a 007 film, Strong said that he would have done it if the 47-year-old actor would have played Bond, “but I think he’s come to the end of his Bond time,” reports the Independent.
Seeming to put the proverbial nail in the coffin, the 52-year-old actor added that Craig has done what he wanted with it, now he is no more going to take it up. This would suggest that, despite being contracted for one more outing, Craig is indeed calling time out on playing the secret agent.
Hear it for the very last time
The confusion on whether the actor would be returning for another Bond film heightened upon the announcement that he would be starring in a TV adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel, Purity. Craig announced he will not do another Bond before Spectre released. In an interview to Time Out London, when the British actor was asked about the chances of him playing Bond again, he had said, “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
