Daniel Craig: 'I Was Approached To Play 007'
But Craig tells website IGNFILMFORCE.COM that the rumours of him being approached to play 007 are true.
The TOMB RAIDER star says, "It was a surreal time to have the studio phoning you up saying you've got the job and then the BROCCOLIs (Bond producers) saying nothing... I just let it go."
"I'm a big believer that if they want you, you don't want to fight; you want to all be on the same page from the very beginning.
"I think I would have probably been a bit too radical for it (the role).
"I don't know what the deal is. There's a lot of rumours floating around. It's not a bad position to be in. If even half of them or a third of them are true, it's not a bad position to be in. I got a text message on my phone saying, 'Congratulations...' That was news to me.
"(I gather) there's been a move in a lot of people's direction. Possibly it's a way of trying to raise debate. They throw out some names and then people start discussing it and then they can make a decision."05/05/2005 03:05
