It seems playing James Bond isn’t always as fun as it sounds. The actor sparked a bit of controversy after finishing up on Spectre back in 2015. However, his “slash my wrists” comment was made two days after filming ended. So it’s no wonder he wasn’t in a mood to jump back in. He commented about the matter on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. In hindsight, the actor called his “slash my wrists” quote a “really stupid answer”. Of course, he did come back and play James Bond again. Furthermore, based on his farewell speech, he had fun doing it, too.
With the upcoming release of No Time To Die, we bid another James Bond era farewell. Daniel Craig’s rendition of the British super-spy may be coming to an end, but some of 007’s toys recently turned up in an odd place. You may have seen a while back that his iconic 1963 Aston Martin DB5 appeared in Rocket League. More of his fancy rides were said to be coming to that arena as well.
