Brutus politicians are the slimy...
I wrote British. Kindle auto-corrected. Can't speak for the trustworthiness of Brutus politicians ;-)

I wonder: is the desire to see Craig as Bond one more time as great as it was back then to see Brosnan continue?

Great point. Takes me back to circa 2004 when fans made no bones about their like or dislike for Brosnan in the role. Now it seems like ennui has taken hold. Even the two dozen or so Craig-Not-Bond stalwarts don't seem that energized.

He was also in the United States Army Combat Infantry Platoon Sergeant, 163rd Infantry Regiment, 41st Division. He served forty-two months in the South Pacific, from January 1942 until August 1945.

Decorated World War II veteran: received the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts.

He was also in the Bond spoof "From Hong Kong with Love" with Bernard Lee and Lois Maxwell.

Note also that the Bond's Academy Award nominated music (LALD, FYEO, TSWLM, SF-the latter a BAFTA winner) isn't high on fans' lists.  Its one musical winner--Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall" for Spectre--is, let's say, far from the best Bond title song.  But consider it an award for the legacy as well as weak competition in 2016.

Don't you mean two musical winners? The Skyfall title song also won an Academy Award.
