DANIEL CRAIG TO QUIT PLAYING JAMES BOND

'James Bond' Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig has hinted he will quit playing James Bond after shooting the next film.The British actor, who won critical acclaim for his portrayal of 007 in 'Casino Royale', insists he doesn't want to make "spy films" forever and is interested in a variety of roles. He said: "I don't just want to make spy films and I've never made movies just for money either."Craig, 39, has already signed up for a second outing as the suave spy in the tentatively titled 'Bond 22', which is due for release in November 2008. 'Monster's Ball' filmmaker Marc Forster was recently announced as the director of the next 007 instalment. Forster, who also helmed 'Finding Neverland', will write the script with 'Crash' director Paul Haggis - who helped pen the last movie 'Casino Royale'. Forster said: "I have also always been a Bond fan, so it is very exciting to take on this challenge. The new direction that the Bond character has taken offers a director a host of new possibilities and I look forward to working with Daniel Craig."

I love Daniel Craig, but when Daniel steps down from his Bond role, pass the torch to Adam Levine (Maroon5). Now there's a real James Bond --- a little young, yes, but he'll grow into it. You could cast a movie around his penetrating, expressive eyes alone. Adam Levine for the next James Bond.
