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?

    I love how people are so much more open to bi-racial ideas. However personally I feel that since the James Bond characters have always been classicly known as caucasian men they should keep the pattern. Mind you this has nothing to do with me being prejudice.

    i agree i think that will smith would be good bond

  3. what’s wrong with a bit of non traditional casting you rancid pasty white fucking bastard? you know what james bond is? he’s a character from a book that got turned into a film and all those other shit house films you mentioned are just characters that could be molded into whatever casting directors want them to be. you might not think you’re racist but if it smells and tastes like shit then it is shit.

  4. I am exited to see that Black Bond.

    A black James Bond? Are you freaking stupid? No one would go see see a black 007. Ian Fleming would roll in his grave!! Idiots.
