Daniel Craig Will Reportedly Return as James Bond, a Job He Truly Hates
Look, it's no secret that Daniel Craig hates playing James Bond. While doing press for his most recent movie, he said he would "rather break this glass and slash my wrists" than return to play 007 again. He regularly talked shit about the character, saying Bond was a misogynist who had nothing of value to teach the world. He hated it so much, he turned down a $99 million offer followed by a $150 million offer.
But, the Bond producers have been persistent nonetheless, and, according to a new report from the Mirror, Craig has changed his mind! The outlet reports that Craig is set to sign onto playing Bond for a fifth time. And while there are few additional details, the Mirror also reports that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has also reportedly secured Adele to record the theme song for a second time. Anyway, the poor guy will have to continue playing one of the most famous characters in film history while making tens of millions of dollars. At least he will hate his job like the rest of us—minus the fame and fortune, of course.
