‘Doing a Romantic Comedy Would be a Disaster,’ Says Daniel Craig
We absolutely love him as James Bond. He’s also dazzled us in Munich, Defiance, and in this summer’s Cowboys & Aliens. And judging by the edgy trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, opening this Christmas, he’ll wow us once more.
The fact that Craig has the drama/thriller thing down pat is a good, good thing because we’re never going to see the 43-year-old English actor, on film at least, pour his heart out on poster board as Andrew Lincoln‘s Mark did to Keira Knightley‘s Juliet in Love Actually. Doing a romantic comedy is just NOT in the cards, Digital Spy (via Bang Showbiz) reports.
“I’m not about to do a rom-com,” Craig says. “It would be a disaster.”
He continued: “Good movies aren’t just funny. Good movies aren’t just sad. Good movies aren’t just serious. They’re all of those f**king things. In good movies, you should be involved in the characters. Not getting deep about it but I think that’s more interesting.”
Well ok, then! I suppose his sexy moves in the last two Bond films will do. Heh.
