    A new video report on the newest James Bond film, Casino Royale is now online. Two seperate videos from Entertainment Tonight are now online, featuring Daniel Craig.

    Speaking on the role to ET’s Mary Hart, Daniel Craig explains ‘My job is not to repeat something that someone else has done. I love Bond, and we all grew up with it, and it’s very precious to me, so I’m trying to look after it–and I’m trying to take it somewhere else so that, with or without me, it lasts another how many years. That’s the deal here.’

    Craig goes on to compare this new, official James Bond film to the 1967 unofficial comedy, Casino Royale. He says, ‘The Casino Royale that was made [in ’67] was a comedy,” says the 38-year-old star. “It was based upon the book, but actually had very little to do with the book. It had about 10 directors, I think, and 10 writers and 10 James Bonds, and it’s nothing to do with this. This [the official 2006 film] is Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale. It’s very close to the book.’

    The video report ends with brief discussion on the brand new Aston Martin DBS. When asked if he gets his own after filming, Craig answered ‘No… I wish.’ View both Entertainment Tonight Casino Royale video reports here.
