In bad news for Tom Hiddleston and all other handsome British actors ages 18 to 34, the producers of the James Bond films can't get over Daniel Craig. Speaking with the BBC (via Variety), Callum McDougall, an executive producer on the last four Bond films, said that Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, who run Bond production company Eon Productions, still view Craig as a "first choice" for future installments. "I wish I knew," he said when asked if Craig would return. "We love Daniel. We would love Daniel to return as Bond. Without any question he is absolutely Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli’s first choice. I know they’re hoping for him to come back." Daniel Craig, on the other hand, has said that he'd rather "break this glass and slash my wrists" than return to the franchise. When reached for comment on the latest developments, Craig responded, "New phone, who's this?"
