I've read the full interview now and I have to say, in context, it's almost certainly just Craig's OTT way of saying "That's how f***** whacked I am right now!"

 

Maybe EON need to have two different Bond actors on the go at once, alternating between them every 2 years? Maybe one could be a Bond set in the 60s so the two don't timelines don't conflict.

Or one to do the interviews and one (Daniel) to do the acting in the film.

That way we could get Roger back - Bond just for the press junkets.

I think you've hit on the perfect plan  B)

Roger could sit on set in a comfy chair watching what's going on, that way he could talk about the film and how it was made.

Obviously, if asked "Who will be Bond after Daniel?" he would be able to answer truthfully "Me, as soon as the interviews start.".

Speaking of Moore, isn't it weird to think that by the time BOND 25 is released (assuming Craig is back), Craig will have played Bond for as long as Sir Rog?!

We all knows that Daniel Craig is the highest paid Bond actor then why people are making it a big issue. I really like Craig's honesty in his interview with Time Out London Magazine

I'm just wondering are any of the interviewers pissing Craig off, by asking about Bond 25 already and will he be back. When this is not in theaters yet, but very soon. He has not have time to relax recharge and do other movies that has nothing to do Bond at all. That is why Craig said what he said at the time.

 

I wonder how will it go when it time for him to be interviewed by Entertainment Tonight, Extra, Access Hollywood and the late night talk shows.

Okay. Let him rest, relax and play in other movies. But for how long? Everyone in the production team should just sit and wait until Craig decides he's ready to come back? And if not? Than another months wasted on casting a new Bond, finding screenwriter and a director (avaliable at the moment!) etc.

I wonder, if Craig does decide to retire the role, would EON be in a position where they first have to find a director/screenwriter and then a new Bond, or would the director/writer possibly hinge on having a new Bond actor in place first? I would think the first scenario most likely, where any actor taking on the role would first want to see where EON planned to take the series after Craig before they commit to it.

"Craig is already under contract for another turn as the gentleman spy"

 

Chill out, internet. 

 

I think he'll do one more after his contract is up.  Especially if he gets a director he likes and it's not a repeat of the Quantum of Solace script filming experience.  And just plan on taking three years between films now.  Imagine how much better QoS would be in 2009 with an extra year of creative preparation.

As always it been the new Bond actor first, that will be on all the entertainment news shows, then comes the director and screenwriter. That we will have to look it up on the internet or look at a entertainment magazine in a section. Also the rest of the news on any of the entertainment news show. Eon would have the say in where to take Bond and how to go about it. It only when he becomes a seasoned Bond actor that he has any saying. It the same like the first season of a popular TV show, where any of the cast members don't have much in the saying. Maybe if you are already big name actor already in the business, then that might be different.

Agreed.

Three key words stand out, both in this interview and one a few weeks ago in which Daniel Craig expressed similar "I want out" views about Bond;

At. The. Moment.

He's come off a long filming schedule, during which, don't forget, he was injured. The premiere is coming up, and then the promotional tours. In Craig's shoes "at the moment", I'm not sure any of us would want to jump straight back in to playing Bond after all this. He'll need a break. Any of us would.

Craig's recent interviews seem conflicted, the one constant being some rather salty-tongued ways of expressing himself! One week he's up for the next movie, the next never in a million years. Perhaps it just depended on the mood he was in when interviewed.

He'll do Bond "for the money". Of course - in the end all his predecessors did, at least in part and at times in the end for no other reason - remember that special clause Connery had about two non-Bond films of his own choosing and money to a Scottish educational trusr which lured him back for DAF?

No one can know for certain, save Daniel Craig himself and the producers and the studio chiefs, but at the moment I'd guess he'll be back for that fifth and final Bond film in 2017 or 2018, especially if SPECTRE's storyline leads naturally into the next film - it might seem like unfinished business not to see it through. Plus, he's a co-producer of Bond, for the moment - why walk away from that?

New York Post ran an article (from the Daily Telegraph, I believe), which said Sony execs told DC to "shut up," and "stop bashing Bond." Wonder if there is any validity here? Both claim an "inside source," but doesn't give a name. Anyone know how his interview went with Jonathan Ross...the special on Bond and Spectre?

Other way round. The New York Post had the original report quoting an anonymous source, so the whole thing is probably rubbish. The Telegraph is just recycling it for clickbait.

There's only one thing about the whole shebang that pisses me off: as I'm the resident Bond expert at the office and everyone knows about it, they all come to me and want to discuss this. Most of them are clueless and I have an awful lot of work shooting this nonsense down... :P

I've read this morning that, according to co-star Naomie Harris, the media just doesn't "get" Daniel Craig's sense of humour. Or more likely they do but decided to twist the meaning of his words anyway. Anything for that old media chestnut around new Bond film time - "[insert actor name here] says this is his final Bond film".

Enjoyed Craig's 007. Until now.  Context aside, the actor playing 007 should do nothing but promote the genre.

 

Craig failed.

 

Moving on.

What utter nonsense. He's a grown man and he can say what he likes. If a gaggle of overexcitable fans don't like it, I'd say that's their problem, not his.
