Since the Bond series is officially on hold – thanks to the probable insolvency of MGM – Daniel Craig landed a different role than he’s used to playing.
Daniel Craig is trading in 007’s tuxedos and martinis for the life of a schlubby journalist in the American remake of Sweden’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
In news first reported by Entertainment Weekly and Deadline, Craig has signed on to play Mikael Blomkvist in the American big screen adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling mystery novel, the Access Hollywood confirmed with Sony Pictures.
I like Daniel Craig. In my opinion, he’s the best Bond since Sean Connery, and he was terrific in the underrated “Layer Cake.” And since the comments from my female readership are down, I figured I owed them something nice.
