Original Print Headline: Craig puts own spin on Bond character
NEW YORK - As Daniel Craig dons his sharply tailored tuxedo and hefts his trusty Walther PPK for "Skyfall," his third outing as British Secret Service Agent 007, the hunky actor seems to be finding a firm footing in one of filmdom's most darkly iconic roles.
Initially dissed by doubters as "the blond Bond," the buff, blunt Londoner is now the sixth actor to officially play James Bond and the fourth to essay him in more than two films (along with Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan). And as he has diligently carved out his own take on Ian Fleming's durable, deadly superspy in "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace," Craig appears to have patterned his performances more along the craggy, muscular lines of Connery's Bond than the suave, glibly urbane styles of Moore and Brosnan.
Still, in "Skyfall," the 23rd film in the Eon Productions franchise, Craig's Bond seems a bit more battered, vulnerable and emotional than in previous outings. In fact, there's even one scene in which James Bond appears to shed a tear.
"Crying? I don't cry," Craig said in mock defiance at a recent news conference. "That's sweat."
