Anti-Craig


Looks like we are not the only ones thinking Daniel Craig would make a bad James Bond. Longtime fans of James Bond have now created a website to protest Craig taking over the role of the superspy. The webmasters' sense of humor matches their dislike of Craig. Hilarious stuff...

"As you can-a clearly see, Connery's face degenerate massively as he becomes Craig. When we tested dis effect on little babies, dey all begin-a cry whenever he start to look like Craig again. Dis-a no good news for Craig."

"In fact, his blunt features are more suggestive of a pugilistic victim of Rocky Balboa than of suave secret agent."

"...he is much more the type to play one of Bond's deranged nemeses, ala Robert Carlyle, than anyone remotely resembling the handsome, athletic and sinisterly smooth agent 007."

Why is everybody so pissed off about the choice of Craig as Bond? Just because he doesn't look like all the Bond actors who came before?!?! How is this series supposed to grow if it's always the same sort of actor as the same sort of character in the same sort of story?!?

It's as if Nasser would've been asked to play the part Vijay usually plays in the latter's next Diwali release: the dashing romantic action hero. I'd be actually interested to see that, just because it would make for some change in the endlessly repetitive world of Kollywood and in the case of Bond-Craig in the world of Hollywood, too.

balaji,
there may be a craig fans site too....supporting him....let them give him a chance...afterall the queens secret agent...has no real role it is the gadgets that make the movie really "bond" .His role is jus to go behind women and frequently say "Bond...James bond"

bhuvan, these r loyal bond fans who have certain ideas about how their hero should look like. craig obviously doesn't fit that profile.

but they seemed to like dalton and even said he came closest to fleming's original imagining of the character. so i'm surprised they don't like craig.

as for vijay-nasser, we might like it since we like change. but would vijay fans like it? :)

venkat, after seeing that pic i actually don't have such a bad feeling about craig. so i'm willing to wait and watch. i just published the website since it was so funny :)

dalton was my fav bond, the guy was absolutely badass - so so underrated

“living daylights” imo was the best bond film ever
