    I hope Daniel Craig returns, I like him.

    But there's rumours that Sam Worthington might take over.

    There's no way the Broccoli family will let this franchise die. No way. They'll shop it around to other studios. They aren't going to let Danny go either. He completely redefined Bond, for the better and it has nothing to do with his blue mankini.
    Exactly. The franchise has made too much money to let it die. If push comes to shove another studio will just step in with the financial backing. And, you're right, they aren't dumping Craig anytime soon. He's the best Bond in years.

    This +1000 I had never watched a Bond movie until Casino Royale. He hooked me.

    Sorry, but I cannot stand Daniel Craig as Bond and I hope the hiatus lasts long enough for him to be out of the picture! He is not attractive enough and looks too damn old. Ian Fleming must still be turning in his grave that Craig was ever chosen as Bond to begin with.

    Have you read the books? Craig is a lot closer to Ian Fleming's version of Bond than any of the others.

    Nothing?!? I agree that he's a terrific Bond in a gazillion ways (though I loved PB as well), but - seriously - nothing?!?

    Well a number of people who actually knew Ian Fleming have said that Craig would be exactly the opposite(looks wise) of what 'James Bond' was supposed to be in Fleming's eyes. Came across this while looking up info on every damn Bond film!! after watching a recent Bondathon and then being online for 6 hours looking shit up!

    *note..this is related only to Craig's looks, and nothing else, according to what I read. Not related to any character traits, actions, internal motivations, etc. etc. of Bond. Purely based on looks per the info.

    Just talking about looks here...and what I read. Never actually talked to Mr. Fleming or anything..

    I used to do that with Kill Bill and Casino Royale years ago, but only my favorite parts.
