    I'd love to know what Roger and Sean were joking about.

    Cubby?

    That photo is a publicity photo from 1982 or 1983, prior to the Bond v Bond non event

    Yes and what about it? It happens to everyone including me. Stupid hair go in a quiff! (Talking about me here)

    I don't think it's receding- just short hair cuts make it more revealed.

    I wish people would give over about Craig's physical appearance. It's not very (skin?) deep to converse about. Just a waste of time.

    There couldn't be in all actuality. Much like Vesper in that scene, we have no idea what Bond can do with his little finger, so any discussions on said topic would be purely speculative. :>

    And following those next few scenes, Vesper had to be silenced because she knew too much.

    I think Craig has most certainly had a hair transplant. It also explain some of the downtime he had after doing Betrayal and Spectre.

    He's pretty obvious that his hair in Spectre was much fuller than SF. He was receding badly in the latter and the short haircut was clearly done to disguise this fact.\

    Look at his hairline in this link:

    Also look at his situation here (this snap was after QOS):

    Craig has had a little 'hair help' for sure between SF and SP

    I agree... I actually thought I saw a "line" in the back of his head in SF, during the casino scene with Severine. This "line", if correct, would be where the hair would be taken from (where the roots are still healthy), and transplanted to another part of the head.

    I think this was going on before and during SF, and agree that his hair is far thicker in SP.

    Saying all that, he looks damn good (and I'm in the section for one more 007 feature out of him).

    This isn't transplanted hair. It's haircut. His hairline isn't so bad (and it has actually always been the way it is), so what stylists have done is subtly left the front of the sides longer so that it gives the illusion of a tighter hairline. It's basically a more stylized version of the swoopover.

    If you look closely, you can see the longer strands (not a weave) where the top and sides meet near the temple. Compare this to the short, spiky hair at the crown. Normally, the crown is longer than anywhere else, except for maybe the bangs. In DC's case, that area at the temples is longest.

    I think it's undeniable that his hairline is much fuller now than it was three years ago. I think it's most evident when you compare him at the both the SF and SP premieres.

    I don't mean it as a negative thing at all. I'd do it if I was loosing my hair and had the money. Plus he looks so much better now than he did in 2012. Somehow he looks younger - he seemed a little chunky, blotchy and baldy at the Skyfall premiere. He looks the very epitome of cool in the second batch of snaps.

    @Pierce2Daniel If my memory serves me correctly DC had the flu when attending the SF premiere, hence him looking a little off.

    How can someone look younger in 2015 than they did in 2012, I don't get it. :-??

    One possibility is looking after and taking better care of yourself.

    It's possible to reverse the ageing process slightly with better diet, nutrition and fitness. I've seen it in my family.

    With DC, I do believe some work has been done however. When he walked out for the SP press release in December 2014 I noticed something a little different about him. As I've said before, it was around the eye area (apparent to me in the film as well) and in the hair line, which does appear a little fuller and I think it's more than the hair cut.

    The eye thing is probably just a matter of age.

    They can't get over Craig's physical appearance. Most people are too shallow. They want their stars to stay young or in a certain age group forever. Which also makes them illusional.

    Am I crazy or am I the only one seeing nothing in these pictures beyond the fact that Craig has different haircuts?

    Will Daniel Craig's hairline return for Bond 26?

    Honestly! Still don't understand why Craig's hair looks more Bondian in James Bond Ads, than James Bond movies. I think it was still ok in CR & QoS...but just too low in SF. They started getting his hair right from SP. I still would have loved his hair to be like the one he had in his unveiling/screen test/ first Casino Royale promotional pic, where he wore a dinner jacket and the gun's silencer was zoomed.

    I liked how Craig's hair was traditionally parted at the German premiere of CR. Had to do some fan art with those images.
