Daniel Craig said some shockingly frank things about his role in the James Bond franchise this week, and not everyone agrees with him. After telling a Time Out interviewer that he would rather slash his wrists than do another Bond movie now, Ellen Pompeo responded to the article on Twitter. Turns out, she doesn't exactly share his perspective. It started with this tweet: This dude needs a reality check https://t.co/adi4RYRXg3 — Ellen Pompeo (@EllenPompeo) October 8, 2015 Then this one: You are absolutely right! I certainly have been there https://t.co/3vHte187Em — Ellen Pompeo (@EllenPompeo) October 8, 2015 Then this: Yes they do #smart girl! https://t.co/ZDFZtb9gVI — Ellen Pompeo (@EllenPompeo) October 8, 2015 Despite the original tweet, Pompeo ended up being quite diplomatic. Do you think Craig was being dramatic? »

Ellen Pompeo is jumping into the conversation on Daniel Craig‘s controversial comments regarding his future with the James Bond film franchise. “This dude needs a reality check,” the “Grey’s Anatomy” star tweeted along with a link to a story about Craig’s comments saying he would rather “slash wrists” then do another James Bond film. Pompeo then responded to a tweet in which a fan wrote, “There is a good chance that’s not exactly what he said, the media can embellish things.” Pompeo responded, “You are absolutely right! I certainly have been there.” Also Read: Daniel Craig »

In a controversial interview with Time Out London, Daniel Craig talks in earthy terms at length about the challenges and rewards of playing James Bond and discusses the forthcoming 007 epic "Spectre". What's raised eyebrows is his comments about not wanting to play James Bond again. Craig says he'd rather slash his wrists than take on the role of 007, even as he expresses concern that whoever plays the role in the future ensures that the quality of the franchise is preserved. In that respect, Craig's comments are a bit ambiguous. He does leave the door open to considering another Bond film but says he would only do it for the money. Craig's stance is a bit surprising. While the Bond franchise has seen its share of troubles between the lead actors and the producers over the decades, Craig is said to have a warm and mutually respectful relationship »

David Harewood wants to play the next James Bond. The 'Homeland' star, 49, has admitted he would love to take over the role of the iconic secret agent from Daniel Craig, who has hinted the forthcoming 'Spectre' will be his last, but understands he'll have to battle against other high-profile contenders, such as Idris Elba, to land the next incarnation. Speaking to the Evening Standard newspaper, he said: ''Everyone wants to be James Bond and there's a queue of guys ahead of me but I will throw my hat into the ring.'' Although, if the handsome star did secure the role, »
Daniel Craig is no longer contractually obligated to return for any more James Bond films after "Spectre." And in a new interview, he spoke about how little he wants to return for any more installments. "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists," he said. "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 asked if he there's an actor he would like to take over the role, like Idris Elba or Tom Hardy, Craig responded: "I don't give a f*ck. Good luck to them! All I care about is that if I stop doing these things we've left it in a good place and people pick it up and make it better. Make it better, that's all." »
Daniel Craig has made it quite clear that he doesn't want to do another James Bond movie again any time in the foreseeable future. In fact, the Spectre star told Time Out London in a recent interview he would "rather break this glass and slash my wrists" than reprise his role as 007. This seemingly ungrateful attitude didn't sit well with a lot of people—including fellow actor Ellen Pompeo! The Grey's Anatomy star t weeted a link to Craig's unabashed interview, adding simply, "This dude needs a reality check." Not everyone agreed entirely. In a tweet to Pompeo, »
Context, context, context. Ellen Pompeo shared a scolding tweet about Daniel Craig on Thursday, Oct. 8, after the James Bond actor made seemingly disparaging remarks about the famous film franchise in a recent interview with Time Out London. “This dude needs a reality check,” the Grey’s Anatomy star wrote, linking to an article about Craig’s controversial comments. Pompeo, 45, has played the titular character on the hit ABC medical drama since 2005. But the comments in question were just one part of the actor’s lengthy interview with the [...] »
The Bond franchise has obviously taken a turn with the last few efforts, but one of the most fascinating twists seems to be in the marketing for the films. Spectre has released a final trailer, and we finally get a real feel for “Bond-ness.” The film seems much more interested in making sure that everyone knows the song is out, than getting people into theaters. Maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem that the one absolutely follows from the other.
It’s an especially curious mix of marketing, because those who follow film aren’t anything like flooded with ads and clips for the film, as though there is only so much sell that will do anything. I can relate to giving up at a certain point, because I think you can pick where the line of diminishing returns is in a case like this. Once you »

Daniel Craig's Spectre promotion tour is off to a weird start. The leading man did an interview with London's Time Out magazine and said some pretty shocking things. Spectre is Craig's fourth turn playing James Bond, and he feels very strongly about his future with the franchise. When asked if he could imagine doing another Bond movie, he replied, "Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. 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." The interviewer prompted him, asking if he wanted to move on for good. "I haven't given it any thought. For at least a year or two, I just don't want to think about it. I don't know what the next step is. I've no idea. Not because I'm trying to be cagey. Who the f*ck knows? »

Daniel Craig really does not want to reprise the coveted role of James Bond in another film after starring in Casino Royale, Skyfall and the forthcoming Spectre. Daniel Craig Is Over Playing James Bond Craig, 47, made it plain recently that he doesn’t want to play special agent James Bond again. “I’d rather break this […]

Daniel Craig sounds like he needs a serious break! The actor got extremely candid about renouncing his James Bond title while chatting with Time Out London. "Spectre" -- which hits theaters November 06 -- will be Craig's fourth run at playing Bond, and he's ready to say goodbye to the iconic spy franchise for good. "I was contracted to do another one. That was all set up," he told the site. "But at the studio there was a real keenness to get it done as soon as possible. In fact, there was a conversation at one point that went: 'Let's film two movies back to back.' I just went: 'You're out of your f***ing minds.' In the nicest possible way." And when asked if he'd consider doing one more Bond movie, Craig didn't hold back his true feelings. "Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. »

Craig said he'd "rather break this glass and slash [his] wrists" than make another James Bond film after Spectre, leading many to call the actor out for insensitivity about mental health issues.
Twitter users took to the site to criticise Craig's comments.
Mental Health Awareness Week and Daniel Craig says he would rather 'slash his own wrists' than play Bond again, helpful stuff

Daniel Craig is out of order for his disrespectful comments. It's these kind of throwaway comments that stigmatise mental health.

What a nob saying you'd slash your wrists, how insensitive 2 people with mental health issues. Joke or no joke not funny #DanielCraig #Bond

Great Bond... But poor choice of words especially with the history of mental illness in the arts »
[[tmz:video id="0_sadb2662"]] Daniel Craig can make all the suicide threats he wants, but as long as he's drawing breath ... he will be playing 007 -- at least according to his "Spectre" co-star Christoph Waltz. Craig recently said he'd slash his wrists before he plays James Bond again -- which, of course, has fueled talk of a possible black Bond in the future. But no offense to the likes of Idris Elba ... "Spectre" baddie Christoph thinks Craig is just blowing smoke. »

Any comparison that places Ethan Hunt over James Herbert Bond feels sacrilegious. Bond is cooler, more prestigious, and more iconic and, on top of that, he’s the greater box office titan. But after seeing Mission:Impossible – Rogue Nation, before which has been playing a trailer for Spectre, there’s an inescapable feeling that M:i has finally unseated Bond at the top of the superspy genre. And really, when you stack the last three M:i films against the last three Daniel Craig Bonds, the winner is clear.
One can only guess about the impending Spectre of course – which looks to be a worthy continuation of Skyfall director Sam Mendes’ wonderful vision – but, even so, film fans the world over should be 10x more excited for the barely-confirmed sixth Mission: Impossible film than for the next Bond outing. Let me tell you why. »

Maybe he had one too many martinis but Daniel Craig was in full-on truth mode when he seemed to indicate in an interview with the UK’s Time Out that his time as Britain’s favorite spy was over. When asked if the actor, who plays the iconic James Bond for a fourth time in the upcoming Spectre, would do another 007 film, the answer was salty, to say the least. “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” said Craig. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm… »
Tell us how you really feel, Daniel Craig. The always candid, sometimes gruff actor tells Time Out London he can't imagine doing another James Bond movie after Spectre, in theaters Nov. 6. "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists," the 47-year-old actor says of playing the British spy, adding, "I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on." Asked if he wants to move on from the role once and for all, the Critics' Choice Award winner says, "I haven't given it any thought. For at least a year or two, I just don't want to think about it. I don't know what the next step is. I've no idea. Not because I'm trying to be cagey. Who the »
If you've never wondered what the fastest Bond car ever is, you haven't lived. Or maybe you have. Whatever the weather, Spectre's Aston Martin DB10 is the fastest Bond car ever.
Armed with official engine statistics, JustPark have created a digital simulator that puts Bond's rides up against each other in a quarter mile drag race.
Click image to open interactive version (via JustPark.com).
It's like The Fast And The Furious, only classier, and with fewer nitro boosts (and just one underwater car).
The 4.7 litre V8 engine Aston Martin DB10, incidentally, is a bespoke two-door coupé created specifically for Spectre by Aston Martin.
Astonishingly, Bond producers Eon spent a whopping £24 million blowing up high-priced cars over the course of the movie.
If you're interested in all the data behind the digital drag race, JustPark have put all the numbers up in a handy spreadsheet, which you can check out at your leisure. »
Daniel Craig's contract to play James Bond ends with "Spectre" on Nov. 6, so fans and the media have been endlessly speculating who might step into his shoes (Idris Elba? Damian Lewis? Tom Hiddleston?). One option that is completely off the table? Craig himself.
In an interview with Time Out London, Craig shot down the idea of returning as 007 - shot it, stomped on it, gave it a few stabs, then buried it. He indicated he'd rather commit suicide than play James Bond again.
"I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists," he said. "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."
Well, of course, the actor did leave a tiny bit of wiggle room, since he referred to "the moment." What about in a few years? "If I did another Bond movie, »

Daniel Craig is contracted for one more James Bond film, but don't expect him to shoot it any time soon: "Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists."
Speaking to Time Out, the current embodiment of agent 007 added that if he did another Bond movie, "it would only be for the money".
In a frank and fascinating interview, Craig explained that, basically, he needs a break from Bond.
"For at least a year or two, I just don't want to think about it," he says.
"I don't know what the next step is. I've no idea. Not because I'm trying to be cagey. Who the f**k knows?
"At the moment, we've done it. I'm not in discussion with anybody about anything."
But what is it about making a Bond film that makes it so challenging? It's not the stunts, as it turns out.

But there’s still some cool movies coming out this year, including the subject of today’s column. With that, let’s take a look at the latest (and final) trailer for the new James Bond movie, Spectre.
Premise: In the aftermath of the attack on MI6, a cryptic message sets in motion events that will see James Bond (Daniel Craig) come face-to-face with the sinister organization known as Spectre. While Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the newly appointed M, continues fighting political pressures that threaten the future of MI6, Bond discovers that the only way to unravel the web of conspiracy is to protect the innocent daughter of a powerful enemy.
