Owen Impressed With Bond 'Rival' Craig

Movie star CLIVE OWEN has given new 007 DANIEL CRAIG his blessing, even though he was reportedly the fellow Brit's chief rival in the becoming BOND stakes. Owen insists he was never a true rival for Craig because, although many felt he'd make the perfect JAMES BOND, he never wanted to play the superspy. And he thinks producers made the perfect choice in casting Craig in CASINO ROYALE. Owen says, "I think he looks great. I'm delighted that they chose a really great, proper actor for the part and not some posing guy. He's a seriously good actor and it looks like the right direction to take that whole thing. "It was all rumour of me being attached. People talked around that as an idea but I pulled myself out of the frame. "Instead, I took a number of films which made me completely unavailable. There's no question of me ever doing it because I went out there and chose to do other things."
