British beauty Sienna Miller has dismissed doubts about Daniel Craig's appointment as the new James Bond, insisting he'll do a "brilliant job" as the slick superspy.

The 23-year-old actress, who reportedly had a brief fling with her Layer Cake co-star during a split from her on-off boyfriend Jude Law, is elated Craig has taken on the lead role in the upcoming Casino Royale remake.

She says, "I think he'll do a brilliant job. He is very talented, raw, rugged and I think he has that edge to him."
