Daniel Craig Prefers Suicide to Playing James Bond Again

In a new interview with Time Out London, Daniel Craig discussed hanging up the James Bond mantle after Spectre. He says he wasn’t particularly interested in doing a fourth Bond film, but he was “contracted” to do another one and the studio even suggested filming two back to back until he nixed the idea. When asked about the prospect of playing Bond one more time, he responded in a completely nondramatic fashion:

Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” Craig said, when asked if he would do another Bond film. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”

When questioned once more if he wanted to move on from Bond for good, Craig said he would only do another one “for the money.” He instead offered advice for whoever takes his place as Bond: “Don’t be shit. You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this any more. This is really rare now. So don’t be shit.”
