From This Is London:

It's James Blond

By Nicole Lampert, Daily Mail, Showbusiness Editor

11 October 2005

He has just proved his ladykilling credentials by seducing Sienna Miller from under the nose of his friend, Jude Law.

Now Daniel Craig is about to become the biggest seducer of all - Ian Fleming's James Bond.

The actor, who found fame as Geordie in the BBC series Our Friends in the North in 1996, got the job after an 18-month mission to replace Pierce Brosnan.

Scores of others, including Law himself, Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell and Orlando Bloom, were considered but rejected.

In the end a shortlist of two emerged - Craig and newcomer Henry Cavill. The pair were auditioned again and tried on tuxedos to see how they would look in the quintessential Bond clothing.

Craig, 37, whose choice will be confirmed by producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson later this week, will be the sixth Bond, but the first blond.

He will star in the 21st Bond film, based on Ian Fleming's first book Casino Royale.

Craig has said he does not like the fact that the films are more about gadgets than feelings.

He added: 'It's a big machine and it makes a lot of money - so why would you change something that makes a lot of money?'

According to TV Guide, this isn't quite official yet.

From: http://www.tvguide.com/News/Entertainment/

CRAIG, DANIEL CRAIG: English actor Daniel Craig has emerged as the odds-on favorite to succeed Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, beating out ER's Goran Visnjic. However, the New York Daily News reports that producer Barbara Broccoli wants him to test again before the official announcement is made later this week. In the meantime Craig isn't wasting any time honing his ladies' man rep. People reports that Sienna Miller has once again broken off her engagement with Jude Law and has been seen around town with Craig. Apparently, Jude only has 006.

Personally, I feel that they should just end Bond. They're reaching now, trying to come up with really wild ideas for each movie. How many times can he save the world? And, they won't bring it into thge 21st Century.
