Here you go, Tom Hiddleston – it’s my treat to you: the perfect picture to print out and tape to your mirror if you’re the type who likes to shout out their emotions at physical symbols of their sadness. Well, you know, when you’re done screaming at that cursed I Heart TS tank top, of course.
Daniel Craig, looking like a recently-divorced dad on his way to a blind date at Applebee’s, appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to promote Logan Lucky. Before they got into that, Stephen Colbert gushed over Daniel and admitted Daniel was his favorite James Bond. That lead to Daniel admitting what we’ve already kind of known for months and months and months; that The New York Times was correct, and that he’s going to play James Bond in another James Bond movie.
Daniel claimed he “couldn’t be happier” and that he’s been sitting on this news for a few months. Daniel added that this fifth Bond film would be his last, and that he wants to go out on “a high note.” Variety says Bond 25 (it doesn’t have a name yet) is slated for November 2019. Stephen Colbert obviously hasn’t forgotten the time Daniel Craig said he’s rather “slash his wrists” than play 007 again. Well, Daniel has an answer for that:
“Look, there’s no point in making excuses about it. But it was two days after I finished shooting the last movie [Spectre], I went straight to an interview and they said, ‘Would you do another one?’ and I went, ‘No!’. And instead of saying something with style and grace, I gave a really stupid answer.”
Stephen joked that it would be like asking a woman who just gave birth if she wanted another baby, and Daniel replied:
“No, it’s not quite like that. I don’t think I can really compare it to that. Can’t compare it to childbirth. I’ll get in a lot of trouble for that. That was bad enough.”
Well of course you can’t compare getting the role of James Bond to laying in a hospital with your business all over the place giving birth to a screaming, gooey alien-looking infant. I mean, no one is offering you $150 million to give birth. Unless there is someplace that is offering that kind of cash, in which case, sign me up and please don’t ask me what kind of “baby” I have inside of me (it’s a 4-slice breakfast pizza baby).
