Believe me after Casino Royale , Craig SILENCED the critics!
I bet there's hardly anyone on it.
Believe it or not it was the first time I went there 8-} I read a few comments, what a sad bunch of people.
I bet, from the comment that they are announcing the name soon, that they are already negotiating with someone. I think as soon as they close the deal we will know something, if I'd have to make a guess I would say until the end of April.
Honestly I guess we all are entitled to our own ,
I mean I am not in a particular good position right now since they moved from what I liked which were Craig's first two to Skyfall.
They on the other hand have been with out a movie of their taste for 11 years !
Everyone would like to be in your position right now
I think before Mid-summer for sure .
With Roger Moore it is a valid critism so why can it not be with Daniel Craig??
Will he be able to be so physical able in 6 years time??
The great difference between Moore & Craig is that Moore always has had style, class and a wicked sense of humor. And very important he has always remained a gentleman on and off the set.
But then again this is not about Roger Moore but Craigs age. And while somebody said he was supposed to look older due to the storyline, with the new M this storyline will continue not jump back so he will look older without a doubt. As long as they keep away from the Gollum shot in the backlighted return of JB in M's appartment.
Oh really? 8-|
How isn't Craig a gentleman, @SaintMark?
It's also worth pointing out 51 is not 57.
Craig is a very good ambassador for the series, yes he has a bit of a potty mouth but it could be in much worse hands, he's reinvigorated series and seems 100% behind it, Rog is a nice bloke but he outlasted himself. I'm sure Craig will know long before he's physically incapable to convince in the role unlike poor old Rog, did the stuntman get a cut of his salary for OP & VTAK?
Last weeks tantrum in NY when some poor smuck photographed him with Rachel and it took her diplomatic skills to stop this scene.
Mr Craig does seem to have problems that people will see him as a star and as such will approach him or photograph him. If he cannot handle that I am sure Connery knows a nice estate where he can hide from the world.
Oh, please. That paparazzi troll followed Dan and Rachel all around the store while they simply minding their own business and doing their grocery shopping. I fully understand and stand by Dan taking the man's phone, and would have acted the same way in that situation. If that paparazzi couldn't understand that people, even world-wide stars deserve their privacy he wouldn't have been told to stop and action like that wouldn't have been taken. It shouldn't be hard to understand that everyone, no matter their fame or yearly income deserve their privacy, though I don't expect prats who get paid to snap photos of famous people getting along with their private lives to understand that.
Craig is a GREAT ambassador for Bond simply because he cares about the character and the franchise. I wouldn't know about his personal behavior outside of public appearances but for me it doesn't matter.
Although it IS hard to beat Roger as a couple of good friends of mine ran into Roger at a Chicago restaurant and when they went up to ask for an autograph, he actually JOINED them at their table as they are big Bond fans. So I'm sure Craig wouldn't do that but I don't think ANYBODY today would do that
Be flipping gracefull when that happens at a public place if you cannot you should look for another job that offers you more privacy. The job of playing 007 does mean you get a lot of attention as the 1st actor to play him can tell you.
Again, just because you are famous doesn't mean you lose your privilege of privacy. You are a human being first, not a star. Like I said, I don't expect people who get paid to snap photos of celebrities out and about to understand that. They lose any manners or respect for others they had (if they ever had any to begin with) the minute they took the job and got handed a camera.
This was a fan taking a picture not a papparazzi. They probably took photo's of DC losing his cool which is far more newsworthy.
He gets payed a shedload of money, smile be gracious and do not explode. People will respond similar to that.
Yes indeed, lets agree to not agree.
However I cannot recall Roger Moore ever reacting like that in public, it must be his charm.
I would say that it is all about how to handle yourself in public. In his writings Moore always stated that it was part of the job so better be gracefull about it in public.
I do recall previous discussions on this kind of behaviour. So it does happen more often, and I do give him a break. But it does not make him a gentleman when compared to Sir Roger Moore, that was all I originaly stated.
the truth ;)
There is proof of Mr Craig being remarkably polite, calm, and reasonable with a jerk who kept filming him and his then girlfriend on beach some years ago. Also, the guy gets interrupted when having dinner with his wife on his birthday by someone asking for an autograph (it's those people who have no manners), and he still signs, and doesn't bite anybody's head off.
Picking one minor incident - of which there is not even any proof of (as far as I know) - to show he's not a gentleman is rather lame. ;) A stalker or a pap (well that's often the same thing) wouldn't merit much respect anyway, and an actual fan with any manners wouldn't just follow them around, or snap away from close quarters without permission - why would a fan do that, it's idiotic and rude.
Since when does being a gentleman mean one has to tolerate disrespect from people who behave nothing like gentlemen themselves?
If the desire for a 80 + Rog being papped in the same way suddenly became a target for the tabs in Rog I think you might see a different side to his usually gentleman manner, I guess we'll never know but Craig is Bond in far more intrusive times than any other 007.
