Blonde Bond Succeeds

I’m going to be honest. I did not think that Daniel Craig was a good choice to play James Bond when he was given the role in 2005. I wrote an article about it. I felt that James Bond is supposed to be tall, dark, and perpetually in his 40s. Daniel Craig has blonde hair and is in his 30s. I do not have a problem with him being in his 30s because Sean Connery turned 32 in the year that the first Bond film (Dr. No) came to theaters.

But after seeing the 2007 version of Casino Royale, I have to say that I was very impressed with Daniel Craig as James Bond. I will also admit that his blonde hair did not distract from him fitting into the role of James Bond. I feel that he was very credible and fit in the role well. I can now stand by my assessment that the only man who failed to fit into the role of James Bond was Timothy Dalton.

I would say that I was happy that Daniel Craig’s first James Bond film was a prequel to all of the others. Since he looks young, I find it appropriate that he’s playing the beginning of the career of James Bond. He will also have a number of years that he can play Bond until he looks too old for the part. I hope that the future Bond films have villains who are close to as memorable as the ones from the 1970s Bond films. The films of starring Pierce Brosnan or Timothy Dalton did not have memorable villians. We need another villain like Jaws.

I can say without reservation that I am looking forward to seeing the next Bond film with Daniel Craig, the man who proved my assumption to be wrong.
