In an interview with Time Out, spent Spectre star Daniel Craig was asked if he could “imagine doing another Bond movie.” Craig was histrionic in reply, saying, “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment.” Of course the moment will pass — most A-list actors feel like this on press junkets leading up to a big release. They’re asked the same questions over and over and, with Craig, the weight of carrying a famous character like 007 brings its own special hardships.
Spectre is Craig’s fourth movie in the Bond role that was originated on film with Dr. No fifty years ago. Craig has been ordering martinis, glowering, winning, and wearing fine English shoes in the Bond movies since 2006’s Casino Royale. Craig did not say whether he’d prefer to slash his wrists with a martini glass or a snifter. Neither did he say he’d never do Bond again, just not “now.” Craig is clearly rather more shaken that stirred by the job at present.
