And are you going to London yet–how long is Dan there for? probly be in NYC for this weekend holiday.

    ok. surry–Dan’s thread. so is it a April”fool trick” from Buckingham Palace or part of the Bond Show-she doin’ a cameo???? My Dan heard it on the news and told me!!

    OH! I watched Tower Heist (loved everyone! Ben is just soo cheezy)Whistleblower and Dream House and got a little overloaded with Mrs. Craig. Maybe I have to see The Constant Gardener to appreciate what she’s “got”…..cuz neither one impressed me on her. too bad she gets to press into Dan any time she wants! Boo hoo!!

    hey, Mendel–you want to let Fio out of the Dan Van–she’s been holed up in there too long–she aint doin anything here!!! and happy easter, too–going to New Jersey 4 family—half hour from Dan’s NYC!!!! aaaaahhhh take care—and send the Dan Van!!

    Hi Guinness

    “And are you going to London yet”

    Funny that you are asking, I was in London on Monday, kept an eye out for Dan, but was too busy *sigh* To think that he might have only been a few tube stops away…

    “so is it a April”fool trick”

    Yes, it sounds like one of those April Fools news stories – pity, I think it’s actually a great idea!

    “too bad she gets to press into Dan any time she wants! Boo hoo!!”

    Boo hoo indeed!!!

    “hey, Mendel–you want to let Fio out of the Dan Van–she’s been holed up in there too long–she aint doin anything here!!!”

    Fio…!!! Your time’s up! My turn ;)

    “going to New Jersey 4 family—half hour from Dan’s NYC!!!! aaaaahhhh”


    Have lots of fun! Definitely rock hard! Do all the things I would also do!!!!!!!

  • next step

    so it’s confirmed once for all. Dream House really went straight to DVD, Cowboys&Aliens was a total fiasco and Dragon Tattoo failed at the box office but it seems Daniel is still ok with it. interesting is if you take James Bond away from him then he can speak differently.
    his James Bond status is that what makes moviegoers go to watch and Daniel gives all hopes in this last film project and Mende and that’s not good. He wants to make Bond with capital B or the best Bond movie ever as he says, interesting is that Dream House, Cowboys and Aliens and Dragon Tattoo weren’t the best movies at all. the three flops DH, C&A and GWTDT did bad but I promise you that Skyfall will have the worst result of all. just wait some months and see. Have a great day, posters. (if you are smart you don’t need to guess who I am) (:-

  • On her Majestys secret service

    London 2012: Daniel Craig to open Olympics as James Bond
    Opening ceremony artistic director Danny Boyle and the 007 star have shot a short film at Buckingham Palace, which will be shown during the BBC’s coverage
    Daniel Craig will help open the London Olympics later this year in character as James Bond, following a personal invitation from the Queen.

    The Sun newspaper reports that Craig and opening ceremony artistic director Danny Boyle have shot a skit titled The Arrival in which 007 travels to Buckingham Palace to be informed that his latest mission is to launch the 2012 games. He is then taken by helicopter to the Olympic stadium in Stratford, east London, where he parachutes into the arena. Boyle and Craig were reportedly given unprecedented access to the palace and its private rooms last week after the Queen personally sanctioned the move. The short film will be shown during the BBC’s coverage of the opening ceremony.

    A source told the Sun: “It’s a huge coup for BBC producers and Danny to be allowed into the palace and have the Queen involved. They wanted the most iconic British film character inside the building most associated with London and with the monarch – and they got it.

    “It will be a magical scene for all watching at home and inside the stadium on 27 July. Working out the logistics of filming has taken months and hasn’t been easy – but it will be worth it in the end.”

    The Queen is celebrating her diamond jubilee this year, while 2012 is also the 50th anniversary of the Bond films as produced by rights owners Eon. “Buckingham Palace is involved in a number of filming projects during this special jubilee year and we would not go into details of any particular project until nearer the time of transmission,” said a spokesman for the monarch.

    Meanwhile, the Advertising Age website reports that Craig will be ditching his usual martini tipple for a beer in at least one scene of the new Bond film, Skyfall, following a deal with Heineken. Sam Mendes, Skyfall’s director, will also take charge of an advert starring Craig as a lager-drinking Bond. The story is dated 31 March on the Advertising Age site, so does not appear to be an April Fool.

    Craig will be playing Bond for the third time in Skyfall, which is due out in October and follows 2006′s Casino Royale and 2008′s Quantum of Solace. Dame Judi Dench reprises her role as the suave spy’s boss, M, for the seventh time, with British actors Albert Finney and Ralph Fiennes in undisclosed parts. Javier Bardem will be one of the villains, while Ben Whishaw debuts in the role of gadget guru Q. Naomie Harris is playing a field agent named Eve and French actor Bérénice Marlohe is set to play an enigmatic Bond girl named Severine.

    ‘Skyfall’ Recruits a Third Bond Girl: 5 Things to Know

    UPDATE: There are several elements that are essential to any Bond film: Action, martinis, and of course, “Bond girls.” Skyfall, the latest installment in the franchise, has already toyed with this formula by having Daniel Craig sip Heineken, but thankfully Bond will still have plenty of glamourous lady friends. Previously, Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe were cast in the film, and now a third leading lady has been added: Tonia Sotiropoulou.

    The Greek actress broke the news on Facebook, writing, “Dear friends I officially announce I got a part in J. Bond new film!!! Turkey here I come! Thank u all for you love and support! This is officially the happiest day of my life bitches!!!!”

    Sotiropoulou originally auditioned for Sévérine, but the role went to Marlohe. After auditioning again and meeting with director Sam Mendes yesterday, she finally landed the part. She told the Greek press that she’s excited to be featured in a film that will play for audiences worldwide. “I feel very lucky and blessed, but basically, I am very grateful that this happened, for my family and my friends who believe in me and support trying to do,” she said. “I will do the best, I am very proud because somehow it might be something that will advertise in Greece and I am happy about it.”

    More details have emerged about the smoldering actress. Here’s what we know so far:
    * Sotiropoulou says on Facebook that she knows English, French, Greek, Ancient Greek and Cypriot Greek.
    * She once played the Virgin Mary.
    * She’s performed standup comedy and children’s theater.
    * Her biggest role to date has been in a horror film called Berberian Sound Studio.
    * In Greece, she appeared on a show called Golden Girls.

    Sotiropoulou will film her scenes later this month in Istanbul. Skyfall hits theaters on November 9, 2012.

  • Daniel and Rachel in Barkway

    Is Bond star Daniel Craig set for move to sleepy village?
    Residents in a sleepy rural village are feeling shaken, but not stirred, by rumours that Bond star Daniel Craig has bought a house there.
    A house in High Street, Barkway, is said to be the most recent property purchased by A-list couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, who are known to have family ties to the area.
    Craig, 44, has starred as the British secret agent in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, with latest Bond film Skyfall due out in cinemas in November.
    Star-struck residents have been keeping an eye on the large property, which has been undergoing renovation works for over a year, including huge security gates.
    Villagers believe it’s only a matter of time before the celebrity couple and their two children from previous relationships move in.
    Kieran Butler, 24, who lives several houses down from the property, said: “Everyone round the village knows it’s them moving in.
    “With all the massive building works that have been going on for so long on that house, we wondered who it was going to be.

    “It must be someone with loads of money as it’s massive, I reckon it must be worth about £3 million.
    “They have built a big extension and gates and a wall around it too.
    “My housemate works opposite, but she said the builders have been told to keep tight-lipped about who they are doing it up for.
    “I haven’t seen either of them down the shops yet though.”
    Weisz, 42, is familiar with the local area, having spent some of her life living in Barley and attending Cambridge University, which is where she began her acting career by appearing in student productions.
    Kieran added: “It’s well known that Rachel Weisz is from Barley and still has family there, so it makes sense for the pair to have a house nearby.”
    The Bafta and Golden Globe-winning couple also have homes in New York and London.

  • To her sweet heart

    No chocolate eggs for these two! Rachel Weisz delivers husband Daniel Craig a healthy smoothie
    He’s busy filming the latest James Bond installment, Skyfall.
    So naturally Daniel Craig is keen to stay in the best possible shape for the role.
    Thankfully, it looks as though his wife Rachel Weisz has his interests at heart, as the actress was seen delivering Daniel a healthy fruit smoothie in Camden.
    The Deep Blue Sea actress had nipped into the local Wholefoods store to grab some nutritious treats for the pair.
    Rachel handed the drink over to Daniel, who looked every inch the 007 star in a black jacket and sunglasses.
    Her healthy attitude is clearly agreeing with her, as Rachel looked svelte in skinny jeans, a navy jumper, coal jacket, and black ankle boots.

    With her milky complexion Rachel could easily have passed for a decade younger than her 42 years.
    She kept a low profile however, like her husband opting to cover up with dark glasses.
    Rachel must be enjoying a short break after a busy few weeks promoting her latest film, Deep Blue Sea.

    Based on the play by Terence Rattigan, Weisz plays Hester, the wife of a British Judge who is caught in a self-destructive love affair with Freddie, a Royal Air Force pilot in The Deep Blue Sea.
    In the trailer Rachel is seen stripping off her co-star Tom Hiddleston in a series of passionate scenes.
    In between her filming commitments, Rachel has been busy settling down to her new life in the US with Daniel Craig.

    And the celebrity couple are doing so in style, with reports emerging that the pair have splashed out a cool $11.5 million on a New York penthouse.
    According to the New York Post, Daniel, 43 and Rachel are set to buy the three-bedroom, three bathroom apartment in the SoHo area of Manhattan.
    The apartment boasts 4,350-square-foot of floor space and was listed at $11.5 million before being taken off the market a few weeks ago.
    The English A-listers tied the knot in a secret ceremony attended by just four people in New York last June.

    T. Sotiropoulou: A Greek woman who would become his girlfriend J. Bond, speaks to TLIFE!
    Tonia Sotiropoulou met a short time ago when he had found a higher position from Angelina Jolie to list IMDB. She speaks again TLIFE, but this time, the best so far, her professional experience.

    She managed to win a role in the new movie James Bond, the side of Daniel Graig. Yesterday she wrote full of joy in the page: “Dear friends, I officially announce that a new role in the movie James Bond. You come Turkey! Thank you all for your love and support. This is officially the happiest day of my life! ”
    Tonia talked about her feelings in TLIFE. They started shooting? Yours when you start? “The filming began in October. I actually have a small role, three scenes. Will play his mistress. Mine starts shooting April 22 and will last 5 days. Will become Turkey! ”

    What is your role? “I’m the mistress of James Bond (Daniel Graig) which somehow smuggled in when he is presumed dead. It is a small role. Two or three scenes … I do not know how exactly will come out.”
    It turned much of the film in Turkey? “Yes, we shot much there. Five days is my own shot and then continue to Istanbul. Have been filming in China, here in London and Turkey.”

    How do you feel? “This is the happiest day of my life so far! I feel very lucky and blessed, but basically, I am very grateful that this happened, for my family and my friends who believe in me and support trying to do … I will do the best, I am very proud because somehow it might be something that will advertise in Greece and I am happy about it. far as I know at least another Bond has not played a Greek . ”
    How is Daniel Graig up close? “A joy! Is funny since I met the minimum is pleasant, very polite and no shopping! Not even know him well …”

    Passed by casting involved a lot of girls? “There were several entries, yes. Initially I had gone through casting for the lead role in August and it finally happened. Took the Bérénice Marlohe, an amazing actress from France. Then he told me the that when casting director would find a role that I could do, why they liked it enough, would eidopoiousan. So Friday I had auditioned for this role came yesterday and took me, we went to the studio that shot the Bond, the director met , talked about the scene and told me he got the role! “

    All About Turkey
    Some scenes of 007 James Bond’s latest movie Skyfall is being shot in Adana and Istanbul in Turkey. Shootings in Adana province have been completed and now it’s time for Istanbul. Between April 16th – May 6th a movie platform will be settled in front of the Spice market in Eminonu neighbourhood and artists and stunts will be there.

    Just a reminder for those who will be visiting Istanbul during this period: all Eminonu area where the Spice Market and Yeni mosque are, will be close to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for about 3 weeks therefore be prepared for lots of traffic and most probabily for not being able to visit the Spice Market area.

    (VIDEO) Daniel Craig Talks ‘Bigger, Better’ Bond On ‘Skyfall’ Set – Javier Bardem’s villain ‘gives the whole film a richer content,’ Craig tells MTV News
    As the James Bond franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary, fans are eagerly awaiting the much-anticipated new film “Skyfall.” Out this fall, the flick has Daniel Craig back as Bond, taking him on a new adventure in what is sure to be an action-packed spy thriller.

    MTV News recently visited the set of “Skyfall” at London’s legendary Pinewood Studios, where director Sam Mendes re-created the city’s famous underground Tube to capture Bond in action.

    We sat down with Mr. Bond himself moments before he began shooting, and even though he couldn’t tell us everything about the plot, he was more than willing to share his excitement about returning as Bond for the third time.
    “It’s great,” Craig said of playing Bond. “It’s been awhile, and we’ve been planning this for a good couple of years now, gathering together, getting Sam Mendes on board, and then Sam casting such a great bunch of people, so I’ve been kind of itching to get going for a while.”

    That great cast includes the ultimate bad guy, Javier Bardem. The actor, who won an Oscar for his bone-chilling role as Anton Chigurh in “No Country for Old Men,” will prove yet again that he is a master villain as he takes on the role of Silva.

    “I think the character is really complex; he’s not an easy guy,” Bardem said. “He’s not only a villain; it’s more than that, hopefully. It’s what we tried to achieve. I’m giving James Bond a hard time — that’s my job, that’s my duty.”

    Craig believes Bardem’s evil role certainly adds great depth to the 23rd installment of 007: “There’s also the very important relationship he has with the bad guy in the movie, which, again, gives the whole film a richer content,” Craig said.

    So does Silva give Bond a run for his money? “He certainly does,” Craig revealed.

    Of course, a Bond movie wouldn’t be complete without a Bond girl. Two lucky women step into the role the time, including French TV actress Bérénice Marlohe, who brings a classic twist to a modern Bond girl.

    “This movie is really like a classic Bond movie,” said Marlohe, who plays Sévérine. “This character and I wanted to be part of this classic spirit.”

    Even though this might be Craig’s third time in the role, he still has the same goal in mind as when he filmed “Casino Royale.”

    “I just try to make the best movie we can,” Craig said. “And when you have a really good script, which we did with this, then you know you have a ground, a foundation to begin a movie, and then from there, you make it bigger and better.”

    Does Craig believe “Skyfall” is bigger and better than his past Bond films? “I do, personally,” he shared.

    “Skyfall” hits theatres November 9.

    Rachel walked around Primrose Hill, North London. Daniel has a house of his own there, it means the rumor turned out false (he sold his house).

  • Kevin W


    Rachel still has her place at Primrose Hill and from what reports say, she renovated it with Daniel in mind.

  • Amy

    @Kevin W:
    Did Daniel move into her house with her? So, he sold his own house?

  • Kevin W


    I would not know if Daniel sold his house but reports said that Rachel was renovating her house with Daniel in mind.

    Well, I knew it. But thank you anyway! I didn’t know she had a house in Primrose Hill. :)
