Daniel Craig Explains Why Bond Is Funnier Than Ever In Skyfall
I would ask if you saw Skyfall this weekend, but that almost seems like a crazy question-- everybody saw SKyfall this weekend, at least judging by the mammoth $88 million it made, the best opening ever for a Bond movie. Tons of people deserve credit for making Skyfall so great, from director Sam Mendes to the incomparable cinematographer Roger Deakins. But as always, it all starts with one man: James Bond himself.
Skyfall is Daniel Craig's third outing in the role of 007, but as he told me in the interview you can watch below, it's the first time he's really felt like he made the character his own. Though, of course, he has no illusions about that-- he knows someone else will take over the role when he's done, and just a few weeks after his stint hosting Saturday Night Live, he admits that Bond-- with his team of writers to craft his quips-- is funnier than Craig is in real life.
Take a look at our quick conversation below, and come back tomorrow for a conversation with Bond's archnemesis Silva-- a.k.a. Javier Bardem-- and director Mendes. It's Skyfall madness around here!
