'Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, for a woman?' the actor asked ahead of his last appearance in...

for the final time in the forthcoming “No Time To Die,” said he doesn’t think a woman should play the fictional British superspy in future installments.In a new interview with Radio Times magazine, Craig was asked if he would support “a more diverse appointment as his replacement” — like, a woman or a person of color.

Craig replied: “The answer to that is very simple. There should simply be better parts for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, for a woman?”That view echoes comments made by Bond franchise executive producer

Barbara Broccoliin 2018.“Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male,” Broccoli“And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.” headtopics.com

So, don’t expect to hear “Good Evening, Ms. Bond” in an 007 movie any time soon.Elsewhere in the interview, Craig revealed the line in the “Casino Royale” script (his first movie as 007) that convinced him to take the gig.“I got to the line when he asks for a vodka martini. The barman says, ‘Shaken or stirred?’ And the script said, ‘Do I look like I give a fuck?’”

“I went, ‘I’m in,’” he recalled. “Fuck” was later changed to “damn” in the movie.“No Time To Die” is scheduled for release Oct. 8. Read more: HuffPost »

Does anyone watch James Bond? Same $hit different sequel. There’s already been a female bond. Her name is Timothy Dalton. It's stupid that anybody should play anyone else's character other than the role of the character just to make a statement. They are great movies don't remake them just leave them alone

James Bond is a male role. Colombiana is a female role. Both are endowed with incredible skills in their role. I would prefer to see Bond remain make and Colombiana remain as they are. Anything else is just trying to start another issue where it does not need to be! James Bond is a man dam let it be. Why don't they just have a female 007?

Agree … However - I do think it’s time we finally had a male Mary Poppins! Why do women have to imitate what men do all the time 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ Be a lady, be original! Because it's James Bond, not Jane Bond.... Is it ok in 2021 for men to have something for ourselves. Women want to be part of everything. The person who wrote the character, wrote is for a male character. Guess what, that's ok.. not everything is a Women empowerment issue.

Agree 100 % make your own character leave Bond alone Makes sense, Moneypenny started out as a failed agent. Replace her with one that succeeded. Who said there couldn’t be a James and Jane? Hell, let’s make it inclusive Black, Asian and Pride versions. Look at Marvel and Disney, they are blowing it up once they included everyone.

Daniel Craig Bids Emotional Farewell to James Bond'No Time to Die' arrives in theaters Oct. 8. Time to put the whole thing to rest. My favorite Bond…after Connery. Guys hes an actor come on 🤣

You know that description Ian Fleming gave of James Bond? Here's a crazy idea. Why not make the character like that. Exactly. Just create another cool character. If we must have a female James Bond … then we must have a male Mary Poppins. Little known fact. The women of the SOE helped bring WWII to an end. If not 4 them forming resistance groups in France, D-day wouldn't have been successful. They actually stopped the Panzer units from moving into Normandy. A lot more than Ian Flemming did!

Or him, either. Ew 🤢 Yeah well when his name is James your kinda limited to men to play the part however if you changed the characters name to Jane Bond then you’d be alright How is it that gender can be such a significant part of someone's character in real life, but completely insignificant to a fantasy character? Seems to be a logical disconnect there. Open to reason on it of course.

No problem but only after dreamy Idris gets a shot. GODDAMN IT, YES!!! YES YES YES!!! Why not create an *original* female character that rivals 007? As a writer trying to get an action script with a 40-something Asian heroine off the ground, I have to say THERE ARE FEMALE-LED SCRIPTS OUT THERE!!! Why not a LGBTQ+ member?

Exactly. Instead of changing color, race, gender, make a new story. Don't take away from an icon, whether Bond, or a fairy tale.

As women, we shouldn’t want these roles. We should be given the opportunity to create our own instead of being given mens scraps. Why shouldn't a woman play bond or a bond line counter part in the movie I get all James Bond movies was played by men but it can change I’d love to se a female James Bond. It’s time.

I think the next James Bond movie should star Queen Latifah. 💓 Willing to risk a cleavage within fans? Many will not watch the female 007 movie. He’s correct This is a dumb conversation. No, James Bond shouldn’t be played by an actress, it’s an iconic male role. There can still be great roles within the film for women, but that’s like saying let’s do a biopic of JFK and cast an actress to play him. It’s just a useless conversation.

004.9 because it's 30% less than a 007 CHARACTERISTICS....character! Just make up an altogether different character that will likely not have the enduring style or following of a British male James Bond I think they should make a 00 series of films, that way you can have a diverse group of agents in any country, any place and any time.

Idris Elba Fans Delight Over Retro James Bond Reaction VideoThe actor has been on the wishlist for many to be the next 007. Credit to KevBot_007 People were a lot less racist back then .

He works for an agency.. why is everyone’s idea to make her his daughter and not just an individual top ranked spy that we just never heard of Now he’ll be cancelled. Maybe check out The Prestige or Kate for that fix Then how do I explain my boner? This a girl should be James Bond stuff is so stupid. Are there people in the world who really think this way? I cannot fathom this stupidity.

The Hollywood perversion academy will probably have a transgender playing Bond. Jane Bond? Because it's a successful and proven franchise and starting a new one is very difficult and there aren't successful franchises with women's protagonists? Just create a new character/parallel series. Unnecessary faux outrage.

There should have been a serious female-led spy franchise by now. The thing with Melissa McCarthy doesn't count.

Two words for you - Evelyn Salt. You’re welcome. Megan Rapinoe you Could Have Been Aborted you glad your mom let you live no you ps Dr shots in drag Ever heard of Cate Archer from 'No One Lives Forever'? The same goes for Batman. There's an awful rendition! Make your own undercover agent, make her awesome. It's laziness and envy that drives thoughts like taking an iconic character and flipping it for a profit.

Fully agreed. It's like saying there should be a man playing 'cat woman' He has a point, women can have roles that reflect their own experiences rather than wanting to imitate men and be them without bringing anything to the table. They should create a new character starring a woman. May be Jean or Jane Bond, daughter of James, taking after her macho and suave dad. James Bond's originality and heritage should remain intact
