Daniel Craig: Gays on Board with New Bond


Daniel_craig_shirtless_1The choice of Daniel Craig has inspired much criticism from die-hard Bond fans, but the actor has said he'll take the sexually adventurous 007 to new places in the upcoming Casino Royale if need be. Last month he told the UK's Daily Mirror, "In today's world we expect female actresses to go naked so why not men? I have told bosses I'm prepared to do a full frontal scene. I'm not shy and Bond wouldn't be shy about it either."

Perhaps his willingness to go full frontal is what has inspired gay men to flock to the next 007.

Said Craig recently: "I was out recently and all these gay guys were over me like a rash, but they never ask about the Bond plot."

A rash? That's not a very pleasant comparison, but maybe that's why he's fingering his thunderballs.

  1. English note! To be "all over someone like a rash" is a common saying in the UK - not any kind of judgement! I think he`s going to be a sexy Bond and he has the body to prove it! Phwoar.

  4. Even if it wasnt a brittish saying, it'd still be a correct metaphor...i can imagine all the guys pretending like they know a damn thing about 007 when the last bond movie they saw was die another day only because the Old Mother Hubbard of Pop had a cameo in it

  6. I remember reading somewhere that the original James Bond, as written by Ian Fleming, was supposed to be blond! Sean Connery, et al, while extremely pleasant to look at, weren't the exact depictions of James Bond that Daniel Craig will be. (nor as hunky!)

  7. I have seen every Bond movie at least 5 times and I am a 7 on the Kinsey scale of 1 -6.

  8. He was hot coming out of the shower in Tomb Raider. I can't remember the rest of the movie.

  9. Male frontal nudity has always been a hardcore pornographic only reality in the USA. Anyone who has travelled the world over know that is not the case elsewhere in the world, not even on broadcast television.

  10. "To be over someone like a rash" is just a simply phrase in the UK - it doesn't imply any judgement at all.

  11. >>"I was out recently and all these gay guys were over me like a rash, but they never ask about the Bond plot."

    He must have been in a VERY dark bar, or in a group of Blind Gay men. This guy is UGLY! Clock stopping, lightning snagging, fell clear out of the ugly tree, UGLY. I can't imagine him as James Bond. And I certainly can't imagine he has a problem with too many humans finding him attractive. I don't think he could get laid in a monkey whorehouse if he had a sack of bananas under each arm. UGLY!

  12. People are bitches - Craig will make a great Bond.

    Those thighs wrapped around my face is a great fantasy, seeing him on the screen illuminates it

  13. "I remember reading somewhere that the original James Bond, as written by Ian Fleming, was supposed to be blond!"

    Dunno where you read it, but it's completely wrong - Bond has always had dark hair from Casino Royale (the first Bond novel) onward, including all the comic book incarnations and visual depictions. Daniel Craig is the first blonde image of Bond...

    ...and as a gay man that could out-Bond trivia anyone under the table, I don't give a toss if he has blonde hair...I just hope the scripts improve. Poor Brosnan was never given a chance and unfortunately was ousted after making what is arguably the WORST Bond film ever, with the possible exception of Moonraker or The Man With The Golden Gun. Sadly, though, it made the most money...which boggles my mind.

  14. Sean Connery and Roger Moore weren`t that dark... Bond always goes wrong when the ideas get stupid - Moonraker, the invisible car. Hopefully, Craig will be an edgier more stripped down Bond for a post-Cold War, age of international terrorism sort of world. No one complained when Felix went black or M became a woman.

  15. The worst part about Die Another Day was Halle Berry lol. Madonna was pretty bad, but she left after a couple minutes. Halle Berry continues to be a bad actress to me. There's an occasional time where she's almost believable and gets praise, so peole begin to think she's good.

  19. Oh my god. Poppa!

  20. I think he's stunning...one of the sexiest men alive, and I rarely go for blond men.

  21. I think all the personal attacks against Craig are really unfortunate. It's one thing to say an actor does not look like your conception of a character, it's another to make that comment a vicious attack on that person's look. Opinions, it's been said, are like arseholes - everyone's got one. But, just like arseholes, not everyone's opinion needs to be rubbed in your face.

    That said, I'm honestly disappointed by the choice of Craig as Bond. (In my world view, Bond is a brunette and, more importantly, has a hairy chest.) Craig exudes too much working-class bloke and not enough world-class sophistication for how I see the role. I think the same is true of Clive Owen, who might be seen as the brunette Craig. They both have a bit of the pugilist about them - a look that is definitely sexy and I certainly would not kick either man out of my bed.

    Given a vote, I would have much preferred to continue with Pierce Brosnan for a while. And if it was necessary to find a younger actor (because, of cource, men over 50 cannot be sexy, athletic or adventurous) then I would have opted for Hugh Jackman.

    But Bond has had many faces and bodies. He's been Brit, Irish, Aussie, Welsh and Scots. He's even been American and - gasp - female - if you count the first two CASINO ROYALE outings. He's been hairy twice and smooth thrice. But so far he's never been blond, shown his cock or - most egregiously - had a "Bond Boy" to offset all those Bond Babes!! One can always hope!

  22. I think he is hot and I'm waiting for Casino Royale. He is supposed to be hung also. Hope the film give us some good shots of Craig in good positions.

  23. How about Colin Firth?

  25. Evo, you sound just like one of my dear asian friends, and it's the verb conjugations that makes me think that, either that or you are a very gifted 3 year old. I think you mean to say: you'd like to be the one who makes Bond feel confused about his sexuality by being an androgynous outgoing performer... something like that, eh?
