Craig: I never wanted to be Bond

Casino Royale isn’t pushing the right buttons for new 007 star Daniel Craig so far.

First he receives hate mail from fans and now it’s rumoured that he never wanted to step into James Bond’s famous shoes.

According to The Mirror, he said: “I never really wanted to do James Bond.

“Don’t get me wrong, I want to make big movies and I want to make as much money as I possibly can, but there’s not a tremendous emotional challenge.”

Craig’s also getting all shaken and stirred about being blamed if the film’s a flop. He added: “It’s a dodgy place to be walking. I don’t really want to get the rap for destroying the franchise.”
