Daniel Craig is coming back as James Bond. He couldn’t quite give up the fast cars, martinis and camera pens.
The British actor made on Tuesday night the confirmation, as widely expected, that he’ll play 007 in the franchise’s next film, due out in November 2019.
The 49-year old actor told Stephen Colbert “Late Show” that it will likely be his last time playing 007, and that he hopes to “go out on a high note.”
Craig has played Bond four times— “Casino Royale,” ”Quantum Of Solace,” ”Skyfall” and “Spectre.”
He had previously suggested he wasn’t at all that interested being Bond again, saying he would rather “slit his wrists,” causing controversy.
More recently, he explained on US radio station Magic that he was weighing up “personal decisions.”
He told Colbert he “couldn’t be happier,” to reprise the role.
