Bond Controversy Rolls On


07 March 2006  |  Written by

Judi Dench is the latest Bond crew member to jump to Daniel Craig's defence after months of fan outrage and the poor man being landed with a Ford Mondeo as a Bond car. "I hate how people have been attacking Daniel Craig," said the Oscar-nominated Dame. "It's despicable and it disgusts me. I have filmed with him in Prague and the and he is a fine actor. He brings something new and edgy to the role. His critics will be proved wrong." Phew, bring on November if only to cease this back and forth defence!

exellent choice
Daniel Craig is a exellent choice to play james Bond as he has all the dimond in the rough qualitys needed to play the character JAMES BOND IS MENT TO BE A RIGHT NASTY BASTARD ANYWAY and is the best choice after Tom MacColl turned it down because of the agent that was chosen for him ( he was an unkowm that they were concidering) More

THANK YOU DAME JUDI! James Bond has gone from stength to strength with DAD grossing the most! Daniel Craig is a fine actor who will do Fleming justice as the gritty, British spy, not the sugar coated sex-object Brosnan was (even though he was good!). CRITICS AND FANS LEAVE CRAIG ALONE! More
