    Daniel has a poor , too-short haircut, showing too much gray. And his overall colour tone isn’t good-too pale. He needs an overhaul in a hurry if he wants to play the dashing James Bond.

    Naomie Harris doing her own Bond stunts
    Naomie Harris revealed she is doing all her own stunts on the new James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ while speaking at the BAFTAs in London last night (12.02.12).
    Naomie Harris is doing all her own stunts in the new James Bond movie.

    The actress plays special agent Eve in the next 007 adventure ‘Skyfall’ and she has been relentlessly hitting the gym to ensure she is in the best possible shape for the film’s numerous action sequences.

    Speaking at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) at London’s Royal Opera House on Sunday night (12.02.12), she told BANG Showbiz: “I’m trying to do all my own stunts. I’ve done them all so far. In a couple of weeks we’ve got another big stunt thing, so I don’t know if I can do all of them. But I’m trying to!”

    However, any fans hoping to see Naomie showing off her fit figure in a bikini will be disappointed as she claims she doesn’t have a traditional Bond girl swimwear scene.

    She said: “I don’t have any bikini scenes so I’m just training to keep up with all the stunts.”

    Naomie has been having a great time on set with Daniel Craig – who is reprising his role as the British spy for a third time – and director Sam Mendes and has been blown away by Daniel’s work ethic and devotion to the role.

    She explained: “Daniel is amazing. We do 12-14 hours of filming and then after, every day, he does two hours of training on top of that in the gym. He works so hard and he’s always in a great mood. I really adore him.

    “It really has been so fantastic. It’s so weird because you forget almost, about the pressure, and Sam Mendes is such a lovely director, there is an amazing atmosphere on set. It’s very very calm and intimate actually. Sometimes it feels like a low budget film, which is fantastic. I forget it’s Bond.”

    To mark the 50th anniversary of James Bond on the big screen the BAFTAs opened with a performance of ‘Thunderball’ – the theme song of the film of the same name – by Sir Tom Jones.

    Host Stephen Fry also paid tribute to the franchise praising the character and the films for celebrating “British eccentricity”.

    Naomie Harris doing her own Bond stunts
    ________________________________________________
    Just days after Bond girl Naomie Harris declared that she was doing all of her own stunts for the new film ‘Skyfall’, an extra has been rushed to hospital after being smacked down by a car in front of Judi Dench.

    While filming in Millbank, Sam Mendes was directing a high-speed chase when one of the cars flew into a background actor.

    The unnamed man was treated immediately on the set before being taken to hospital. Dame Judi Dench saw it happen and according to an eyewitness was visibly “horrified” by the incident.

    According to The Sun, a source said: “All the cars were going full pelt. Judi looked horrified but the man was clearly in good hands. He was taken to hospital as a precaution but he’s all right.”

    Mendes then shut down the shoot for an hour while everyone recovered from the shock.

    Hi, DiH
    I must say… Daniel’s voice was out of the ordinary! Well, that’s a switch. And the motorcycle chase scene was certainly worth seeing, so I pre-ordered the blu-ray of TINTIN. I’m not going to see it at a theater again, tho…
    Hi, Mendel
    Yeah, I’m sure the article is incorrect. They didn’t go to Turkey on Thu, so they still are in the UK. First of all, Daniel was in London with George Clooney with Anna Friel and Rhys Ifans on Sat. Judi Dench filmed at Millbank, London on Sat, and she attended the BAFTA after she filmed the film on Vauxhall Bridge in London on Sun. Secondly, we all know the Virgine Atlantic affiliates with Bond once more.

    ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Opens Big In Japan
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/girl-dragon-tattoo-opens-big-japan-291259
    Fincher’s film inks $3.68m in two days

    TOKYO – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opened at No.1 in Japan at the weekend, taking 288.5 million yen ($3.68 million) over the three days from just over 227,500 admissions at 431 screens.
    David Fincher and Rooney Mara attended the Japan premiere on Jan. 30 and the film has been getting a lot of attention in the local media. Elsewhere in Asia, the India and Vietnam releases have been pulled over attempted censorship of some of the movie’s more graphic scenes.
    Sony Pictures Entertainment is reportedly aiming for a 20 billion yen ($25 million) total box office following its impressive opening.
    Always Sanchome no Yuhi `64 was knocked off the top spot in its fourth week of release. The third installment of the Sunset on Third Street series that take a nostalgic look at post-war Tokyo has now racked up a cumulative box office of 2.49 billion yen from nearly 2 million admissions.
    In third place Kirin no Tsubasa – Gekijouban Shizanmono has also scored a strong cumulative 1.05 billion yen in just over two weeks.
    The Ken Watanabe-starrer Hayabusa Harukanaru Kikan debuted in fourth place with a less than impressive 128 million yen ($1.6 million) from almost 109,000 admissions at 311 screens. Toei will have been hoping for a better start from its big-budget production of the story of Japan’s unmanned space probe that returned to earth in 2010 after a troubled mission. This is the second of three versions of the Hayabusa story made by different studios, with a 3D version due for release next month.
    Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney), the live-action version of the popular Capcom video game series, directed by Takashi Miike, bowed at fifth with 118 million yen from 275 screens.
    Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol spent its ninth week in the top 10, hanging on by its fingertips to the last spot in the rankings.

    And I found the article of Japan. I think this article is the person-to-person interview, it’s an interview conducted over the ‘Skype’. Rie, correct the mistakes if (I’m sure lol) the translation is terrible.

    http://eiga.com/extra/konishi/169/
    (Google translation)
    No. 169: Daniel Craig said, the Fincher’s work is a masterpiece of desire beyond the ideal
    Was supposed to be interviewed Daniel Craig plays a talented journalist Michael in “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”. However, even for the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills where the interview, Craig is not essential. That should, he is during the filming of “(original title) 007 Fall Sky” latest series in London now as well. Therefore, he was televised interview through the satellite link.
    Person concerned in place in many cases the absence of coverage, this day is that Kenneth Branagh and interviews on Skype to Sweden in the “love of Marilyn 7 days” this place actually. In addition, in the movie “The Grey (original title)” the other day called, were interviewed by Skype to Liam Neeson in London. It is a translation but came to be caught easily in the busy star Thanks to the development of Internet, television interviews over the monitor is a strange feeling that Yappari.
    However, because what these interviews, it is to witness the appearance in an interview that usually do not see. For example, Craig appeared in the televised coverage of “The Woman in the Dragon Tattoo”, had exhausted to be honest. To make the bear under the eyes, he had stored the Bushohige. Margin of the heart do not even put on a smile. According to what we hear, followed by nine in the morning until last night’s shooting, that it does not take only two and a half hours of sleep.
    Still, questions about “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” was replying to loquacity. I decided to cast him in this work, because he was a big fan of director David Fincher from the previous. Director Fincher is known as a perfectionist spend dozens of take one shot, for the actor but harsh existence, the rewards that are large enough that incredible.
    “When I saw the movie was completed for the first time, the word was applied to David first”, but plan to achieve a film of the ideal I was “Thank you. Everyone to realize that it is not rare. But , there are as planned, no, I’m incredibly proud of work for more than it had finished. this movie ”
    Daniel Craig will serve as the sixth James Bond, with his predecessor was caught in the image of the role of bond is a rare actor has been working outside, “007″ different.
    “Certainly, yet,” I think that I get called Daniel “is a thing that very lucky. However, when it was offered a role that, did not feel uneasy to be type cast. If James Even around with a lifetime image as a bond, the world is it a translation may be worse. Fortunately, I have get a chance to challenge the work of a lot. to between two years past, to do a movie cowboy , is rich. Variety was able to do this movie, to try to capture the motion to a bonus, I have asked is a very fulfilling experience ”
    Finally I asked about the contents of “(original title) 007 Fall Sky”.
    Is true of me (laughs) at this time. To spend six months to shoot the future “, if I say the story in this place, all becomes ruin, the very beautiful and very exciting that the film is fast. tempo’s, supposed to be a Bond movie “very

    Yeah, you see, he’s ****ing funny! He said that he didn’t want to do a romantic comedy. But I think it opens up other possibilities for Daniel, IMO. I know he’s a serious actor, but I feel too serious things are so funny sometimes. I’m sure he has a talent for a Black comedy.

    Success pours for Huff after ‘A Steady Rain’

    (QUOTE)
    - Daniel Craig, funny?
    Another surprise for Huff was how funny Craig was. “It’s a shame he doesn’t do more comedy,” Huff says. “He does great impersonations, including a really good Maggie Smith. He even does me. He wouldn’t do it when I was in the room, but apparently it was very funny. Hugh told Daniel he should host ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but Daniel said no, he was a serious actor. Then he laughed.”
    “A Steady Rain” is now being produced across the country and around the world, including the West Coast premiere now at Marin Theatre Company.
    The play opened up a number of professional doors for Huff, who still resides in Chicago with his wife, Georgette, and 10-year-old daughter, Robin. He tried moving his family to Los Angeles when he was working as a co-producer and writer on “Mad Men,” but as Huff says, “That didn’t work out well for us.”
    Now he’s doing the long-distance thing while he works on projects such as “House of Cards,” a drama being produced by Netflix starring Kevin Spacey, and “Why We Fight,” which Huff is developing with Steven Spielberg for AMC.
    “TV is so …” Huff doesn’t finish his thought. He’s on his mobile phone on the roof of a building in Santa Monica, where the phone reception is almost good. “Look, TV is all options and guarantees, and you don’t know how long a show is going to go, if it will get picked up or whether audiences will hate it or love it.”

    Daniel taking an economy seat on a plane sounds right if he wanted to leave Glasgow in a hurry and that’s the only flight he could get that had an available seat at the time. in any case, i bet the other passengers were more than surprised to see him.

    (Google Translation)
    The image of Daniel Craig wearing a surgeon, so far removed from its thrilling scenes as 007, not surprising. Also his speech, more intimate, less rough and unforgiving than that often accompanies their characters. The occasion deserved. The actor traveled to the capital of Mongolia, Ulan Bator, to witness, aboard Air called Eye Hospital, medical staff how to intervene surgical pediatric patients in the area mostly affected by cataracts.

    It was a few months ago, just before Skyfall start shooting his third film on the skin of the legendary James Bond, under the command of director Sam Mendes, when Craig made a hole in his schedule to live at the forefront how specific the oenegé work of Orbis, with whom he collaborates. An institution dedicated to treating preventable blindness in remote and needy throughout the world.

    “Witnessing all that, Craig explained, was truly touching. As an idea is extraordinary, because vision loss is a tragedy at any age, but if children are involved, the fact of becoming blind is unbearable to imagine. Westerners tend to associate with old age cataracts, but when you see them in those little, those poor children blinded by them is terrible. So restore the view is like a miracle. ”

    The aircraft equipped as a surgical center was already in full track when the actor began his visit. A DC-10 equipped operating room and auditorium, ready to receive the energy of the device of the fuel itself, without relying on local suppliers. “That’s crucial, because they often fly to places facing complex and difficult situations,” said Craig. On board the aircraft, the little patients with their families waiting for their turn to the intervention would solve his eye problem. The actor was invited to enter the operating room, but before team members instructed him some advice, if the intervention was impressed too.

    “I went, I washed, I pulled on my uniform of George Clooney and started to walk around like a surgeon, recalls, laughing. They said, ‘If you feel dizzy, leans back against the wall, not to fall forward …’ Nice to know “. “In the end, goes on, I got dizzy, and I found it fascinating. It is a privilege to witness first-line from the ability of those surgeons. ”

    After surgery, he avoided staying in the recovery room while the children returned from the anesthesia itself. “I did not bother, it seemed a very intimate and did not want to spite them watching. Apparently, the vision is not perfect yet to remove the bandage, but are improving rapidly. ”

    His presence went unnoticed by the inhabitants of Ulan Bator, unaware that the man of intense blue gaze is now one of the stars of the big screen, something that the actor seemed perfect. “Someone suggested that perhaps the team would be good proyectarles a Bond film. To me it seemed like a good idea, he says, laughing. It was enough that the doctors knew that I could greet them. They are essential parts of this whole story, and my role here is tiny, only attempt to highlight the amazing work being done. And I love it. ”

    The actor does not spare praise for the medical personnel from several countries, especially United States and United Kingdom, and the flight
    -Fixing a crew working with the oenegé. “They are a great people was amazing watching them. They are there, give their time and services and they do because, quite simply, is what to do. ” But also, he adds, convey the love they put into their work, something that “will return literally children’s vision, which drastically changes their lives.”

    One of the key aspects of work of these professionals is to transfer knowledge to local health workers to learn to apply the therapies and thus leave a lasting legacy. “Apparently, Craig explains, the specialty of ophthalmology in countries like this has too many applicants, unlike others, such as heart or plastic surgery.”

    The actor also recalls how impressed trip one of the statements you live: “It was a young surgeon in the first operation of its life. By the time he took the knife, I felt like a jolt, it cost me not to fall round. This technique is very precise, the air environmental stress, but she did a great job. With the control freak that I am, I wondered how I would overcome that situation “.

    Now think about repeating the experience, this time traveling to Vietnam, where Orbis has a permanent hospital. Craig had already been a while shuffling various charity projects, and commitment to the organization Orbis came through Omega, the renowned brand of watches, which the interpreter is an ambassador. Indeed, the firm has launched a watch model, Hour Vision Blue, part of whose sales will go to projects Orbis.

    Besides its charitable work, Daniel Craig enjoys the good reception in theaters Men Who Hate Women, the Hollywood remake of the famous novel by Stieg Larsson Swedish, in which he plays the stubborn and cornered journalist Mikael Blomkvist . “I love every minute of the film. It was a long shoot, yes, but a great experience.
