Owen Defends Bond Rival Craig

CLIVE OWEN is the latest star to defend the casting of DANIEL CRAIG as JAMES BOND, even though he originally hoped to land the role. The SIN CITY actor was tipped for the coveted part of the suave superspy before Craig was announced as PIERCE BROSNAN's successor last year (05). But Owen is thrilled that a "proper actor" has finally been cast as 007, and insists new movie CASINO ROYALE will silence Craig's critics. He says, "I think when Craig first took the part he got a pretty rough ride, which to a certain extent is inevitable because there are so many different people who have so many different ideas about something like that. You are never going to please everybody. "The thing that is really exciting is that he is a proper actor. He is not shallow or posing, they have cast a really serious actor and I think that when the film comes out everyone will see what a great choice he was."
