Re: Stuff about Dan

Daniel Craig recently passed his U.S. driving test (on Staten Island) on his first attempt. He decided to get his American driving licence because he spends much of his time living in New York. All non-US citizens are required to complete a written test, a five hour safety course and the short driving test before qualifying for a licence. It is not known what car Craig used for the test but it is unlikely to have been an Aston Martin, according to the New York Post. His licence will be valid for ten years.

Re: Stuff about Dan

I have to take this poll with a pinch of salt.   ajb007/biggrin
Skyfall is on release and by coincidence D Craig and J Dench top the
the poll for favourite Male and female actor.
I'm not saying it's not true.  ( The Sun would NEVER do anything like that )
Just a little odd.   ajb007/lol

For my money for sheer screen sex appeal you can't beat Dame Maggie Smith.

Re: Stuff about Dan

Daniel Craig has topped the list of GQ magazine's 25 Most Stylish Men of 2012. And I quote: Like the double-0 agent he plays on the big screen, Daniel Craig's go-to is a perfectly cut Tom Ford suit that frankly makes other famous guys look like they've never heard of a tailor. But the actor's hardly just a mannequin for his favourite designer's wares, and 2012 saw Craig expanding his sartorial horizons into new GQ-approved areas, whether it be adopting the brown suit, playing with unconventional shirt and tie combos, or just saying "eff it" and showing up to a premiere in some eye-grabbing Nikes.

I can't really see Craig in the way since his GQ interview where he told a joke that would make minigeff blanche...

"The combination of these issues could mean that Craig's character could be written out of the sequel altogether, though Craig's reps say that talks on salary have not yet begun."

ajb007/lol Well that would be a bit difficult.... as his character is one of the main ones. That would be like having a James Bond film, without James Bond....

They would be stupid to cut costs on this... they should ride the success coat tails that Skyfall has now generated.

If they sign anyone else a Mikael Blomkvist then it will definitely do worse in the box office.... complete idiocy logic on the film studio's part  ajb007/rolleyes 

But then again, this is only 'reportedly'... and we all know what that means! ajb007/lol

Re: Stuff about Dan

According to Baz Bamigboye of the Mail, Daniel Craig and the misses Rachel Weisz are in talks to appear together this autumn on Broadway in Betrayal, Harold Pinter's 1978 cool dissection of deceit. Bamigboye also says, if it all comes together, it would be for a limited run because Craig has to begin pre-production on Bond 24 next year.

What a good turn DC does in 'The Mother'.  It's on demand on Xfinity for those in the USA.

Very insightful movie, especially for the more mature. Life's a challenge, the challenges just vary with age.

Re: Stuff about Dan

Hope that Dan does come back for The Girl who Played with Fire. Also I would love it if the play "A Steady Rain" that he and Hugh Jackman appeared in on Broadway gets a film adaptation that was talked about. It sounded like a good story.

Daniel Craig is set to part of an all-star cast in The Monuments Men alongside George Clooney, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. Adapted by Clooney and his long time partner Grant Heslov, the drama takes place during the final days of Nazi Germany as Adolf Hitler and the Nazis try to cover their tracks by destroying all the artwork they had stolen during their rise to power, as a group of art historians and museum curators try to rescue those works of art.

Sir Stirling Moss draws criticism for homophobic comment

Retired Formula One star Sir Stirling Moss has apologised after suggesting that he didn’t want a ‘poofter’ to portray him in a film.

The 83-year-old, hailed as one of the sport’s greatest drivers, had been asked whether he should be played by a ‘masculine’ actor if a film were to be made of his life.

"I hope the actor would be masculine, not a poofter or anything like that. Perhaps the guy from Skyfall?" Moss responded, referring to Daniel Craig.

Re: Stuff about Dan

Daniel Craig - James Bond
In 2005 the knives were certainly out for Daniel Craig upon the announcement that he would replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Clive Owen, Hugh Jackman and Sam Worthington were all mooted for the role, but the man who eventually ousted the popular Brosnan was seen as a poor choice by the series' fans.

Overlooking his fine performances in a number of films, including 'Road To Perdition' and 'Layer Cake' (which saw him play a character that had Bond-esque charm), they instead wailed their disgust at a blonde man playing the suave superspy — spawning the website danielcraigisnotbond.com that is still running today.

He got back at his detractors with the success of 'Casino Royale', and went on to don the famed tuxedo in 'Quantum Of Solace'. However by the time ‘Skyfall’ hit screens back in October, recently becoming the most successful British movie ever, you’d be forgiven for forgetting there had ever been a challenge to Craig’s place as 007.
