— Ace Why didn't they just cast Saul Rosenberg? He could have brought all his glasses. And his shoes.
JINXED James Bond star Daniel Craig ... suffered sunburn while topping up his tan before filming in the Bahamas.
A source on the Casino Royale set said: Its driving him mad. He constantly wants to scratch. Its worst when he does a costume change. He is in agony.
He has been moaning to his assistants that hes got prickly heat. He is extremely wary of being outside now. But the nature of filming is such that he is out in the heat all day.
I lost the link now, but it turns out he was also baffled by the manual transmission in the car he was supposed to drive as Bond.
He showed up for Bond film not knowing how to drive a stick. He thought, I guess, that James Bond drove an automatic.
Thanks to Scott.

Couldn't someone have just taken an afternoon and taught Craig how to drive a stick shift? It's hardly rocket science, fer cryin' out loud.
I HAD to learn how to drive one when I was a poor newlywed and we couldn't afford the extra money for an automatic transmission in our Hyundai Excel. It took me all of 3 hours to get it down pat, if even that long.
And Craig is making a LOAD of bucks for this film, but he can't be bothered to learn a little hand-foot coordination. Good grief.

"What kind of firecracker was it, sir?"
"Ohh. It's big. Like a toilet paper tube."
"Let me wrap this up and I'll see you with my nub."
Gotta love a Jerky Boys reference.

Jesus, maybe they should have just cast MikeMaryGenoJersey if they were were so completely intent on totally gaying up Bond.

Jeez, I know Kiefer Sutherland is busy with "24," including a couple of possible theatrical film spinoffs, but MGM should have considered him for the Bond franchise as well. He isn't any more blonde than Daniel Craig...and Sutherland at least knows how to act like a man. And "Jack Bauer" would absolutely mop the floor with Craig, one-on-one.
For that matter...Kim Bauer could kick the new Bond's ass, never mind Jack.

I thought "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" didn't look as well done production wise as the Sean Connery pictures. But Diana Rigg. Whoa.

Sheesh. The Bond franchise jumped the shark sometime around "Moonraker."

Lazenby got Diana Rigg damnit!
Even David Niven was a better Bond.
