Best News Today

Ahhh, here it is in today's Indy Star, right above the headline "Sewage Sprays into Muncie Home", we have a new James Bond! Daniel Craig (who, I'll admit, I've never even heard of) will play the sixth Bond after Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, and Brosnan. (For bonus points: name the one bond film which marked the 2nd Bond, the only film for this bond, and my favorite Bond movie!)

Craig's first movie will be a remake of Casino Royale -- Fleming's first Bond book in which we meet a 30-something kick-ass agent with Her Majesty's Secret Service who favors vintage champagne, hand-made cigarettes and Saville Row-tailored suits. (Fleming's literary Bond was much bigger snob and expert than ever portayed in film.) Most fans will remember Casino Royale as a Bond spoof staring Peter Sellers. The movie will serve as a bit of a prequel -- with Bond becoming a "oo" agent at the very beginning. Welcome, Craig, and welcome to James Bond all over again.
