CBn previously reported that Daniel Craig would be appearing on Today for an interview about James Bond and Casino Royale. 007 fans who missed the show can now catch it online at MSNBC Video. As an added treat, a previously unreleased scene between Bond and Eva Green’s Vesper Lynd is included.
When asked what was so important about this film compared to the previous twenty, Craig said: ‘Well, what was important for me was that I wanted to show someone who was fallible, that fell down, that bled, that [you don’t] think from the beginning of the movie that he will be successful…’
After hearing the early positive reviews of the film, Craig says he isn’t planning on going into the “I told you so” mode with the critics that doubted him.
‘He’s learning,’ says Craig, while discussing how clever and sophisticated his Bond is compared with the others. ‘I think there’s a level of level of sophistication that he’s got to get to. I didn’t want to spring him straight in there. I wanted to discover how he comes sophisticated, and how through experience, he becomes the guy he is.’
