With the release of CASINO ROYALE on DVD, I am a still sad sad girl tonight! My husband brought to my attention the below linked and cited article from the website Dark Horizons. Apparently my lovely tanned and toned Bond, Mr Craig, wants to limit his nudity in the upcoming un named Bond project 22, he wants people to appreicate his acting skills and not just consider him a piece of flesh.
I suppose I can understand where he is coming from, but not everyone in this world has the chisled and sculpted pieces of flesh that he does. I think its like art, it takes a deserning eye to appreciate its fine lines. In this case, I am said deserning eye, and my deserning eye will be well disapointed without some eye candy in the next film. I’m actually considering not bothering to go see it . . . .
I spoke about that shot in my personal review of the movie. . . that shot was part of the reason I’m enamoured once again with Bond. xoxox <3. Daniel Craig embodies (litteratly) everything our Mr Flemming set out for Bond to be. Why mess with a perfect combination.
Daniel didn’t have an issue with nudity in layer cake. . .as seen below (I covered his pee pee for modesty, this is of course a family friendly blog 😉 ) If you search “Daniel Craig” in Google Images, you can see the unaltered verision if you so choose.
So in the spirit of the possibility of never getting to see Daniel Craig in various states of undress, here are some pictures. . .
New Bond Villain & Nudity Talk
James Bond’s now infamous walk out of the surf in blue speedos in “Casino Royale” has already gone down in pop culture history – thanks mostly to the first on-set photos which splashed across hundreds of magazines and websites, to the marketing trailers which emphasized it to bring a wider audience into the theatre.
For all its quality filmmaking, its Daniel Craig’s bulging muscles filling those little Italian La Perla shorts can definitely be cited as one of the film’s strong selling points for getting them in. One person however isn’t comfortable in repeating that idea – Daniel Craig himself.
According to a report on WENN via MI6, Craig has told film bosses to cover him up so that the focus is more on his acting talent, rather than his appearance. A source says “Daniel was a little uncomfortable at the amount of nudity he had to do. He appreciated that a lot of it was to win over the female fans but it’s not something he wants to make a habit of, no matter how good he looks in his trunks“.
In other “Bond 22” related news, former running candidate for the role Goran Visnjic – who reportedly just quit TV’s “ER” this week, has late 2007/early 2008 booked for a massive project. That project? Bond potentially.
According to a Croatian newspaper via MI6, it seems that when auditioning for Bond in Casino Royale, he impressed the EON people so much (he was turned down then for being too young apparently) that he’s won the role of Vesper Lynd’s French-Algerian former love interest mentioned in ‘Royale’. It also claims that his role will be “sizable, menacing and significant to the plot”.
