In an interview airing tonight on Extra, Daniel Craig opens up about his path to James Bond.
According to the Quantum of Solace star, he sought advice from the previous actor to play the iconic role.
“I sat next to [Pierce Brosnan] at the BAFTAs... after dinner, after having enough to drink, I just went over [to him] and said, ‘Look, it’s not on the cards. It might be on the cards. If it were to be on the cards, what should I do?’ And he said, ‘Go for it. Just go for it. You’ve got to have a go at this.’”
During the feature, Craig also cited his favorite James Bond of all-time:
“Sean Connery without a doubt. Nothing against Pierce and everyone else.”
