James Bond Actor After Daniel Craig Is Black?

By on

Daniel Craig has hinted that Spectre may be his last film playing as the popular agent 007 and we may finally get to see the first black James Bond after?the current film wraps-up as previous reports said that a veteran from the series is being eyed for the role once the current Bond abandons his post.

Craig, 47, has been on a long ride playing as the famous character since he starred in Casino Royale in 2006 and will take on the role again for the fourth time when Spectre hits theaters in 2015. It seems however that he is getting tired from his role.?When Craig was asked by Esquire if he would be willing to take on the role again after Spectre, he seemed to be a bit reluctant:??At this moment, no. I have a life and I?ve got to get on with it a big. But we?ll see.?

Craig admitted that he doesn?t know if there will be another Bond film for him after Spectre:??I really don?t know. Honestly. I?m not trying to be coy. At the moment I can?t even conceive it.”?Craig pointed-out that Spectre is not a two-part film as he claims it to be the conclusion to the film that he started with Casino Royale. ?I think we can safely say we?ve squared all those circles,? Craig said.

New James Bond

With Craig seemingly finished portaying 007, we may finally see the first black guy to portray Bond. Back in 2013, former Bond actor Pierce Brosnan revealed that he continuously backed Colin Salmon to take on the role of 007, Telegraph reported.??I?ve always thrown Colin Salmon?s name in the mix. He?s somebody I have worked with closely over the years. He would be outstanding and I think it would be absolutely essential, Brosnan told Telegraph.?

Surely, Brosnan knows what he?s talking about as he has already experienced what the role requires as he has already starred in four Bond films before: GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999), and Die Another Day (2002).?Salmon has appeared alongside Brosnan in all his bond films except Goldeneye. Salmon played the role of Charles Robinson in the Bond films.
