I'm not totally surprised that this happened, with the upcoming release of Skyfall, but producers announced today that they have signed Daniel Craig on for two more Bond films. This would make it a total of 5 films in the franchise for the star, who took over for the first time in 2006 with Casino Royale.
Personally, I am a big fan of the Daniel Craig Bond films. I know that he doesn't have quite the swagger that previous portrayals of the character did (Pierce Brosnan or Sean Connery), but there is a realism he brings to the movies that I adore.
The trailers for Skyfall look like the franchise could have a return to glory after Quantam of Solace was a bit under-whelming, since 007 has to deal with the aftermath of an attack on MI6. I also have to say, that when looking at the current landscape of mature male actors, I'm not sure if there is anyone that could do it better.
What are your thoughts? Are you happy Daniel Craig has signed on for two more Bonds?
