Daniel recently talked about doing stunts for the film.

“I don’t do all my stunts—I’d be lying if I said that. But I like the fact that occasionally that you’ll see on screen that it’s my face and it’s me,” Daniel shared. “And I think audiences hopefully appreciate that. At least, I really hope they do.”

In case you missed it, have a look at Daniel‘s cover on the latest issue of Rolling Stone.

    NO because he trained in ballet for most of his childhood & teens, so the git is afraid he’ll fall over.

    Can’t believe I forked out 15 quid to buy a ticket to see stunts performed by former circus acrobats, commandos & other evil kanevils.
    I want a refund!

    He should’ve been cast as M instead. I’m sure Judy Dench could’ve done more of those stunts than this knob.

    Thank god, finally an actor who doesn’t lie witht he ridiculous notion that they “do all their own stunts”. How refreshing.

  • to Gina

    @Guinness: You are NOT Guinness!

  • Launa

  • Launa

    @Happy_Evil_Dude: You meant.. Tom Cruise?

  • so not James Bond

    What’s with the open mouth in all the photos, looks like some old geezer from a Russian politburo.
    I’ve always thought he had a face of a politician from communist Russia, you know Putin and his ilk… Why would anyone cast this guy as 007 is beyond me.

  • Nate

    Daniel’s my hero! :D

    If you females like him, then you must go for old men. Because he looks like a grandpa. He ain’t got no alibi, he’s ugly.

  • to Guinness wannabe

    Why are you obsessed with Guinness so much?? You get nothing on her!

  • kelly

    @so not James Bond:

    I agree. He looks like a deranged Ukrainian prisoner of war. Not a sex symbol. Oh brother.

  • Tess

  • kelly

    @Lee:

    You are nuts. Those dull eyes are old.

    SEAN CONNERY SPEAKS ABOUT JAMES BOND; ADMIRES DANIEL CRAIG
    He also says he’s seen Casino Royale and has emerged a big fan of Daniel Craig’s portrayal of 007. Connery, who has lambasted the series in the past for delving into the realm of over-the-top stunts, gadgets and special effects, praises the producers for bringing the essence of the character back. “I think Daniel Craig is a terrific choice,” he says “I think they’re going back to a more realistic type of Bond movie as I don’t think they could have gone much further with the special effects.”

  • Sarah

    @Lee: YEEEEEEEEEEEES! Daniel’s eyes are on another level of blue.

  • Jess

    @kelly:
    After Sean Connery, they should have ended James Bond.

    Don’t refer to Connery. You are anything but a Bond fan!!!!!

  • Tamara

    Good for him, actors don’t need to bluff.

    Roger Moore on Why Daniel Craig Is the Best James Bond Ever and What 007 Role He’s Dying to Play

    After your good self, is Sean Connery still your favorite Bond?

    Well, I finished the book three or four months ago, but since then, I went to a screening of Skyfall and I’ve changed my opinion. I think that he [Daniel Craig] is the Bond. He’s quite brilliant. I wrote to Barbara [Broccoli] and Michael [Wilson] and said…they’ve guaranteed Bond another 50 years of life.

    Presumably you’d seen the other two Daniel Craig Bond movies?

    Yes, I thought Casino Royale was tremendous. I thought his action was quite extraordinary—he did more action in the first 30 seconds of the film than I did in 14 years of playing Bond. To me, he looks like a killer. He looks as though he knows what he’s doing. I look as though I might cheat at backgammon.

    I think you’re underselling yourself, but I’m sure he’ll be delighted to hear that. It’s really a remarkable franchise, isn’t it? Over half the world has seen at least one James Bond movie, and more people have walked on the moon than played Bond.

    I felt a tremendous pride when I saw Daniel Craig and the Queen for the opening sequence of the Olympics. I thought, my lord, what other series of films would be able to get the Queen of England to agree to appear?

  • OMG

    @viti: But you are a thick-skinned fellow.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    @Launa: not referencing anyone in particular, though Tom Cruise certainly goes above and beyong what most people do. But when you have people like Kristen Stewart going all “I do all my own stunts it’s like “STFU!!!!”

  • Li

    A good actor but an ugly man.

  • Launa

    @Happy_Evil_Dude: HAHA, true!

  • Grace

    I could stare into Daniel’s blue eyes all day long. it soothes the soul. What a beautiful creature!

  • 20 minute coffee break

    PLEASE GET A NEW BOND Sean was best 007, Even though I’ve only seen the DVD’s.

  • 20 minute coffee break

    know I’ll get nixed on this but really for doing your own stunts and making it look real get the Butler. Bond from what I read is an older man who can go from dapper to deadly.

  • Nicole

    @Li: Nope. He is a beautifully insane male Siberian Husky

  • Tom

    Well, he may not do ALL his stunts, but as much as possible he does his own stunts. It’s awesome he still enjoy doing his own stunts.
    as an example..
    -
    Now he is able to adopt a more sanguine approach. There is a fight scene in Skyfall that takes place on a train travelling at 30mph as it crosses a 400ft–high viaduct. Craig is secured to the train by a 3ft wire, but all the while, he says, he was thinking, ‘If I fall it’ll f***ing hurt, but I won’t die. I know it’s going to hurt, but it’s worth the risk.’ The consequence of Craig doing the majority of his own stunts, Mendes says, is that ‘you feel his presence powerfully in the action sequences, and so when he comes out of them and does other scenes you believe him more as the character.’
