Craig Challenged Bond Producer Over Marathon Screen Test
British actor Daniel Craig risked losing the role of James Bond before it was officially his when he challenged tough producer Barbara Broccoli over her screen test regime. Craig spent months waiting to hear if he'd landed the part of 007 and felt so confident when Broccoli insisted on a face-to-face screen test, he fought for a break when the intense audition took up a day of his life. He recalls, "I finally had to stop in the last half hour and tell Barbara enough is enough." Famous hard task mistress Broccoli obviously liked the actor's bravado - she gave him the role of a lifetime.
