Daniel Craig Is A 'Magnificent' James Bond, Says Pierce Brosnan

Daniel Craig Is A 'Magnificent' James Bond, Says Pierce Brosnan

Daniel Craig heads inside the Greenwich Hotel bright and early on Thursday (May 2) in the Tribeca district of New York City.

The 45-year-old Skyfall actor was surrounded by onlookers as he made his way in on the gorgeous Spring day.

Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan recently had nothing but praise for Daniel‘s performance as 007.

Daniel gives 150 percent of himself to it constantly, both physically and emotionally. He’s a Bond for this age and this time,” Pierce told Yahoo. “Bond was a glorious time for me. I have nothing but gratitude for having played such a role. And Daniel is magnificent.”

FYI: Daniel is wearing the AllSaints Trap Boots.

    Glad he loved Skyfall. Pierce has no grudge against him at all. Daniel and he are friends. Daniel consulted with him about the offer to play James Bond.

    They are hardly friends. They only met once at a gala and Daniel asked Pierce for advice and Pierce told him “go for it”….It’s a friendly advice and shows the good character of Pierce but it doesn’t makes them friends.

    By saying that Pearce definitely did not “discover America”, but it’s great he admits it. Daniel is by far the best of all Bonds. His performance is simply thrilling. In my opinion he even eclipsed Sean Connery.
    Great to see him here again :)

    Ok, he looks great but….his jacket and the buttoms? check it out, he needs to fix that…and his pants with that belt hanging out…..he needs a wife that can tell him he cant go out like this.

    What’s really magnificent is the illusion of that belt.
