Mark Strong confirms Daniel Craig’s 007 exit
Daniel Craig’s good friend Mark Strong may have just confirmed that the James Bond actor is shedding his tuxedo, reported Independent.
Speaking to ShortList at the premiere of his new film Grimsby, asked whether he’d be up for playing a villain in a 007 film, the actor said: “Do you know what, I’d have loved to have played the villain in a Bond movie while Daniel was doing it because he’s a pal and that would have been great. But I think he’s come to the end of his Bond time and so it’s probably never going to happen.”
Seeming to plant the proverbial nail in the coffin, he added: “I think he feels like he’s mined it. He’s done what he wants with it.
“He has been [wonderful] and he’s loved it.”
This would suggest that, despite being contracted for one more outing, Craig is indeed calling time on playing the secret agent.
