Daniel Craig unveiled as new James Bond
This guy is blond, just like me. Daniel Craig, who is a 37-year-old, sandy-haired Englishman was introduced Friday as the new James Bond, ending months of speculation.
His selection was revealed as he was whisked down the Thames River aboard a military Rigid Raider boat to a news conference.
Craig replaces Pierce Brosnan in the role of the suave spy in "Casino Royale," due in theaters next year.
"It is a huge iconic figure in movie history, and those things don't come along very often," the star said, after posing for photos with producer Barbara Broccoli and director Martin Campbell.
Craig revealed he only discovered on Monday that he had definitely been given the role and had to consider the offer. How could you turn down the role of James Bond, even if the script is cheese ridden? Way to go Craig.
