After various months of speculation and rumors, Daniel Craig has confirmed he will reprise his role as James Bond. During a taping of the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Craig addressed the rumors by saying, “I have been quite cagey about it. I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”
Colbert continued on by saying, “We could use some good news here. Daniel Craig, will you return as James Bond?” By which Craig simply replied, “yes.”
The next James Bond film will be released in 2019 according to Eon Productions and MGM Studios. Are you excited to see Daniel back as 007?
