Even though he may be a teensy-weensy bit sick of it, Daniel Craig is back as Agent 007 once again.
The British actor confirmed he would return to the role on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, ending speculation there would be a changing of the guard for now.
Craig explained to Colbert that he had been sitting on the Bond decision for “a couple of months.” He’ll be back at it in James Bond 25, set to release in 2019.
“We’ve been discussing it and we’ve been trying to figure things out, but I always wanted to. I needed a break,” he said.
Cast your mind back to 2015 though, where Craig told Time Out London he would “rather slash my wrists” than play Bond again, a role which he’s been in since 2006’s Casino Royale.
“There’s no point in making excuses about it,” he told Colbert, in response to the comment.
“But it was two days after shooting the last movie. I went straight to an interview and someone asked ‘would you do another one’ I went no and instead of saying something with style and grace, I gave a really stupid answer.”
Craig would also like some forgiveness from the interviewers who missed out on a scoop. He told numerous outlets earlier on Tuesday there was “no decision” on reprising his Bond role.
“I have to apologize to all the people I’ve done interviews with today, because I wanted to tell you,” Craig told Colbert.
No need to be so shy in future, 007.
