Daniel Craig Gives Niall Horan His James Bond Blessing
Daniel Craig continues to promote his upcoming movie Spectre, in which he plays the role of James Bond for a fourth and final time. A number of reporters have been askimg Craig to name someone who could suitably replace him as Bond for future extensions of the franchise. His answer? One Direction's Niall Horan.
During an interview with Capital FM, Craig agreed that Horan would make for an “absolutely fabulous” James Bond. It should be noted that Horan’s name didn’t come to Craig on his own — the host brought him up, most likely referencing a tweet from 2013 where Horan joked, "Watchin skyfall ! I reckon im the next bond ! Dont mess with me, i just started growin a little chin hair!”
But Craig had some general advice for whomever’s set to play Bond next, saying, “Just enjoy it and make it the best you can. That's all I've ever tried to do with these films is just make the movies as memorable as possible. Should I make another one or not make another one I'm proud of the four I've made."
If you're wondering whether Craig ever intends on returning to the role, perhaps a few years down the line, don't count on it. When an interviewer with Time Out London asked if he'd consider playing Bond again he said, "Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on."
Spectre is set to be released in the U.S. on November 6.
