Looks like Tom Hiddleston dated Taylor Swift for nothing because Daniel Craig is to return as James Bond for one last film.
According to Page Six, Hiddleston didn’t make the cut because he’s “too smug and not tough enough.” “Too smug” to play James Bond?! Ouch.
But perhaps what’s more surprising than Hiddleston not being cast as Bond is the fact that Craig has agreed to return. While he was doing the press rounds for Spectre, he told Time Out that he’d rather “break this glass and slash my wrists” than do another Bond movie. Guess they threw enough money at the problem to make him change his mind… that or the thought of wimpy, smug Hiddleston taking over the role was just too much for Craig to bear. The official “hollywood insider” reason is that he had such a blast doing Othello off-Broadway, which was produced by Bond producer Barbara Broccoli (what. a. name), that Broccoli (again, that name) was able to convince him to reprise the role one last time.
Craig is a good enough Bond, I guess – certainly better than Hiddleston. But come on, give the people what they want: Idris Alba.
