New Bond: I hate guns
This is London.com ^ | 10/25/2005 | This is London

Posted on 10/25/2005 1:34:55 PM PDT by kerryusama04

Daniel Craig will have a problem playing the new James Bond - because he hates guns.

The actor will wield 007's famous Walther PPK in the movie Casino Royale.

But he revealed in OK! magazine: "I hate handguns. Handguns are used to shoot people and as long as they are around, people will shoot each other.

"That's a simple fact. I've seen a bullet wound and it was a mess. It was on a shoot and it scared me. Bullets have a nasty habit of finding their target and that's what's scary about them."

Nor does the 37-year-old share Bond's love of Martinis shaken and stirred.

"I love a Martini straight up. I don't think anybody makes a Martini stirred any more," he said.

Craig was unveiled earlier this month as the successor to Pierce Brosnan. He will play a tougher, grittier 007 in Casino Royale, which is based on Ian Fleming's first Bond book.

The movie is due for release in November next year.

Craig is not the first Bond to reveal a hatred of guns.

Roger Moore, who played the superspy from 1973 to 1985, said after quitting the role that he hated "that awful pose" of Bond with his gun which has become an iconic movie image.

The actor later became an ambassador for children's charity Unicef and declared: "Today I am completely opposed to small arms and what they can do to children. I played every role tongue-in-cheek because I don't really believe in that sort of hero. I don't like guns."

It's not like we needed to be turned off any more from Hollywood. I take notice every time a "tough guy" from the entertainment industry like Fred Dirsch, Angelina Jolie, or even Ahnold make their living on violence then denounce personal firearms all the while employing bodyguards and owning weapons themselves.

At least Roger Moore had the good sense to keep his trap shut until he was done making his fortune.

No Guns.

No Martini.

I'm wondering if he forget to mention the other staple of Bond films that he doesn't like.

Roger Moore was pretty limp wristed as Bond, but at least he didn't bash the role while he had it. This idiot is poisoning the well before they even shoot one frame of film. Oh well, it doesn't matter. The Bond franchise is as dead as Star Trek. How many more times can they beat the same dead horse?

He was on a shoot and saw a bullet wound and it was a mess. What a gay statement. Can tell he was never in the military.

Seeing as how I've ignored every other thread on this topic, I'll pipe in here.

This guy is a wimp. If he had his way, then people like me would no longer need to fear smaller people having an "equalizer" like a firearm. A simple cudgel or broadsword would be all I would need to beat most of others smaller than me into submission. The Rule of the Brute would be returned to society.

That is not the kind of place I want to live. This idiot is far too effeminate to be a Bond. What will he want banned next? Piinty sticks?

Sean Connery is the archetype for Bond. This wee girl doesn't come close.

Just give him pink ribbons to deal with the bad guys. The original 007 will never be replaced except for possibly Roger Moore.

"I love a Martini straight up. I don't think anybody makes a Martini stirred any more," he said.

A Martini that isn't stirred IS shaken and then poured into the glass straight up.

I've made a point to see every Bond flick since Goldfinger but I'll be giving this one a pass. The last few have pretty much sucked anyway.

Sigourney Weaver hates gus as well. In an interview I heard her state she had real trouble with doing the movie "Aliens" because of her having to shoot a gun in the movie.

Craig might just be a big enough pussy to put the franchise away. Cubby's daughter has just about killed the series and this should just about do it.

Whadda shame. Connery was the best and those old sixties Bond movies are still the ones to watch for their campy futuristic look.

It's funny how times change. I watch those old Bond movies for 10 minutes, and they're laughable. He'll grab some girl off the street, kiss her real rough- perfect stranger- and she goes- "Oh, James...." Then they end up in bed. Ha- try that in real life. And The old Bonds in the movies were like 60 years old.
Roger Ebert said once that teenagers used to sneak into the movie theaters to watch adults have sex, and now adults go to the movies to watch teenagers have sex.

Fleming's Bond was an expert with a pistol, pure and simple. If this new guy hates guns so much, he cannot in good conscience play this role. Ironically, I've read that when Ian Fleming underwent a course for undercover operatives in Canada during WWII, he failed an assignment to kill an "enemy agent" in cold blood.

LMAO. What an idiot. Hey "Bond", when the bad guys in REAL LIFE shoot at me, I like the freedom to return fire. I'm sure you would just nad over your wife to be gang-raped and then run, but then you're a EuroWeasel Metro-sexual Hollywierdo Beotch.

So much for the new Bond. LOL.

The Bond films have been becoming more politically correct with every new film over the past decade. Bond is now a wussy nancy boy who's always at war with his female boss.

Soon Bond will be using a tasr gun, drinking vegetable smoothies, Rosie O'Donnell will be the new bond girl, and the plot will be saving SF from evil republicans who have invented a anti-homosexual satellite death ray.

As Myamoto Musashi observed some 360 years ago, "the profession of a gentleman warrior is that of arms, so shouldn't he have at least some liking for it?" Thus one could safely conclude that Daniel Craig is no gentleman.

Oh well, it doesn't matter. The Bond franchise is as dead as Star Trek. How many more times can they beat the same dead horse?

The best Bond films were those that hewed most closely to the original Fleming novels, and allowed for a little (dare I say it) character development: "From Russia With Love", "Goldfinger", "The Man With the Golden Gun". The producers made several attempts to wean the audience away from the "gadgets" ("On Her Majesty's Secret Service", "License to Kill"), but those attempts were frustrated by less than adequate scripts and less than adequate leading men (George Lazenby, Tim Dalton, Pierce Brosnan). Sounds as if this "grittier" picture may be yet another attempt to throttle down the toys, and throttle up the plot.

He's abviously a metrosexual nancy boy. Who wants to bet they cast him along side some liberal activist dingbat like Gwenyth Paltrow just to turn the knife in the carcass of the Bond franchise.
