Craig Wants Out Of Bond Role
Skyfall, the latest James Bond saga, looks set to become the biggest moneymaker of all the Bond flicks, judging by its two-week take overseas, where it has already earned nearly $300 million. But Daniel Craig, who plays Bond, would apparently love to dump the character. I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it, he says in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. But they won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more. In the interview, presumably conducted before the overseas opening of Skyfall, Craig goes on to suggest that he was secretly hoping that the movie would fail and that if it did, he'd walk away -- contract or not.
