Daniel Craig has lost his mind

November 7th, 2008 // 155 Comments

Daniel Craig, an outspoken Barack Obama supporter despite not being a U.S. citizen, thinks it might be time for a black James Bond. According to The Scoop:

Craig, the first blond Bond, told the British press, “After Barack Obama’s victory, I think we might have reached the moment for a coloured 007.

“I think the role could easily be played by a black actor, because the character created by Ian Fleming in the ’50s has undergone a great deal of evolution and continues to be updated,” he said. “I’ve always been a fan of Obama. The political ideas that have emerged from his speeches seem to me to be genuine.”

Look, I’m as open minded as the next guy, but what the hell is Daniel Craig talking about? James Bond isn’t black. It’s about as simple as that. You can’t just go around replacing characters to be progressive. It’d be like having Shaft played by an overweight Mexican woman. What’s that? Making a movie about He-Man? Well let’s go ahead and cast an Asian guy. Or better yet, how about this watermelon?

  4. Eat Fish

    I, for one, would love to see a black Bond.

    sounds like he was just really excited for obama, which i can relate to! cause i got a crush on OBAMA Bama bama…

  10. thatone

    saying “coloured” instead of “colored” doesn’t make it right!

    personally i’d like to see a latina woman playing the hulk. that shit would be realistic.

    I think it is time for a black bond. I would see the movie besides I don’t think the Bond character can be compared to Shaft? who wears an afro? Bond is beyond being “white” he is international so why typecast him as only a white man? I guess the Bond ladies were supposed to always be white also? times have changed my friends maybe in time your ignorance will too.

  12. I can see a black james bond, as long as he doesnt have Q put some “rims” on the new Aston Martin…ill be fine!

  13. supersex

    don’t go black
    i am sick of this shit blacks
    jumping around the streets like the zoo open it’s doors

  14. IT_Bag

    So what if James Bond isn’t black… neither is Barack Obama.

  15. Dane

    Lemme guess, Will Smith as the new Bond?

  16. Joseph

    This is the same idiot that said James Bond was/is ready for a gay scene. Douche

  17. 10pound

    Fuck off Fish…a nigger 007 is a cool idea

    Kinda wierd to start naming your Bond successor when you’ve only done two bond films.
    Bond is of course, a former royal navy tough guy…
    On a similar note, 10 years ago I hoped that they would cast Batman with Wesley Snipes. After the previous batman movies, I thought he had the necessary gravitas.

  19. Well let’s hope Obama is genuine Danny.
    Or else USA is still Double-O screwed.

    (Like -does he know Africa is a continent ? Could you maybe get ’60 Minutes’ working on that one America ? Could be a scoop there Mike Wallace….
    Some of us foreigners are beginning to wonder what goes on down there)

  20. Jenny Craig

    Just because Obama’s mom had a severe case of jungle fever doesn’t make her or her son black. What if he had come out looking like Matt Damon? Would he still represent “change?” His cabinet is full of the same Zionist-communists as Bush’s cabinet.

  21. Douchie, the only “rims” you are familiar with are the ones your trace with your tounge around random male anus.

  22. hotness

    mmmmm Daniel Craig! and hes for Obama? double mmmmmmmm!

  23. hotness

    haha hollywood_hillbilly :P

  24. hahaha sure cross dresser!!!

  25. youre like a broken record backwood boy! same intelligible crap different day…

  26. Nonsuch

    So you can change hair color, nationality (Scots vs. English), height, age…but not skin color? WTF?

  27. Mugato

    I think there should be a white Weezie Jefferson.

  28. Pierce Brosnan was the hottest 007. Who is think ugly big eared monkey??

  29. Pierce Brosnan was the hottest 007. Who is thisugly big eared monkey??

    SuperFish Writer, you racist faguette! Asian’s can MOST certainly be He-Man!!! By the Power of Gray Skull!!!! Asians HAVE THE POWERRRRRRR! (But I agree with you on Daniel Craig’s comments. Black’s cannot be James Bond, just ain’t right).

  31. yos

    The Superficial writer is not funny, and often unnecessarily offensive.

  32. Lloyd Willingham III

    That’s very racist and sexist of Daniel Craig. I think the next James Bond should be an Eskimo woman. How about a midget Congolese transvestite?

  33. frankinfish

    I Agree Completely with Fish on this….

    You don’t go changing things like that just for the hell of it!
    What next an Asian Blade? Mexican Wolverine?
    The ethnicity is a part of the character

  34. The best James Bond ever was George Lazendy “on her majesty’s secret service”

  35. Bob

    #10.’saying “coloured” instead of “colored” doesn’t make it right’
    Although, it does make it proper English spelling.
    Do you know what I’m saying? (American translation “y’all no wat I say’in?)

    At first, years back, the idea of Daniel Craig playing Bond was strange and out of ‘Bond’ stereotype. His opinion seems fair. I wouldn’t mind a black Bond at all.

  36. prehensel

    Tracy Morgan called this a long time ago: http://www.hulu.com/watch/18874/saturday-night-live-bond-lamont-bond

    Bond…Lamont Bond

    Man is it refreshing to hear the admittedly liberal Superficial Writer make some racial sense!

    Replacing whoever is in the majority is the exact opposite of equality . When are the lefties going to understand that white people count, too? Like he said, we don’t hear about replacing black roles with white people, do we? Of course not, because the current ‘accepted’ mindset is the enemy of equality and diversity.

    This is the part where you call me racist.

  38. DC

    1st WTF: black james bond
    2nd WTF: somebody who claims to be enlightened still calling someone “colored”
    3rd WTF: sissy unnecessary U’s

  39. Binary

    God knows they wouldn’t turn Nick Fury from white to black…

    Oh wait…

  40. blugardenia

    Yeah, the fact that he said “colored” just killed me. Hello!

  41. MrChips

    #28, Jenna, you hit the nail on the head. I always thought Craig looks like a blond chimpanzee. Check out that receding forehead. What a fucking retard. Actors should never open their mouths outside of a script. 99 times out of 100 they just let out crap. Sure, a black James Bond. Why not a midget? Or a faggot? Sorry, homosexual. No, wait. A transgendered woman. This is the douchebaggery that gives political correctness a bad name. Why can’t these assholes make up a new cool black character instead of trying to rewrite old white ones.

  42. obomba

    I don’t think there should be a black bond…

    There should be a black and white bond!!! hehehehe one black and one white…

  43. Yeah, definitely not trying to be racist here, but the only way that movie would sell is if the movie premiered exclusively in London, where African Americans with an English accent is just like anything else…

  44. Sauron

    I’d expect Richard Simons to be the next Bond.

  45. sammy23

    all B.S. … im no racist but just stick to the plan.. all james bond white.. all shafts black.. simple.. james bond been white since i was born..jeez..

  46. I think it would be cool to have a Black Bond. I think Will Smith could pull it off.

  47. Donovan

    Vote no to a black 007! =)

  48. Matt A.

    It could be done…in the books they make it fairly clear that there have been a succession of Bonds. James Bond is the name always assigned to Agent 007, no matter who he is. So, we could very well see a brutha Bond.

  49. Insatiable Peter

    Craig sounds ungrateful. Fuck, I’ll be James Bond. How’s that? Why has everyone become so fucking retarded? Obama is not coming to your house to play XBox. He’s not going to babysit your kids. Obama doesn’t give a fuck about you. He’s one man already being tested by Russia and being reprimanded by Israel. If half the fucking country blows up, don’t be surprised.

    Liberals and Hollywood elites have made the black man their pets. Nothing but a novelty. If you could miniaturize a black man, Paris Hilton would be carrying one around wherever she goes but good lord knows how many times she’s locked her door on a street corner.
