007 Daniel Craig

Longtime friends know just how much we love our James Bond movies here at VGMH.  Ian Fleming created the fictional character of James Bond, an intelligence officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. Bond was also known by his code number, 007.  And one of our all-time favorite "James Bond" actors starred in Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008) and Skyfall (2012) with his newest Bond film set to debut this week, Spectre.  Daniel is calm, cool and gay-friendly (more on that later).  He's also the first blonde actor to play Bond, and the first to be born after the start of the film series, and also the first to be born after the death of author Ian Fleming in 1964.   And oh yea, when the part called for it, Daniel's performed in film nude.

In a TimeOut London interview  (October 2015), Craig talked about playing the macho James Bond character, answering "Playing James Bond is a lot about how you look – the clothes, the walk, the fitness. Do you ever get fed up with all that?"] It’s a drag. The best acting is when you’re not concerned about the surface. And Bond is the opposite of that. You have to be bothered about how you’re looking. It’s a struggle. I know that how Bond wears a suit and walks into a room is important. But as an actor I don’t want to give a fuck about what I look like! So I have to play with both things. In a way that works, as that’s Bond: he looks good and he doesn’t give a fuck what you think he looks like!"

These pictures are from the 2000 film Some Voices in which Mr. Craig gave us full frontal nudity:
