Best Bond Ever Daniel Craig Has Given 007 Another 50 Years With 'Skyfall' Says Sir Roger Moore

Ex-Bond star speaks of his love of Daniel in Bond role

By On

Daniel Craig is the best James Bond, so good in fact that he may have given the franchise another 50 years of life.

Those aren't the words of the random man on the street, but of an ex-James Bond himself, Sir Roger Moore.

The 86-year-old star loves new 007 flick 'Skyfall so much that he apparently wishes that when he wrote his book, 'Bond on Bond', including the opinion that Sean Connery was the best Bond, he'd been able to include a chapter on the latest man to take on the role of the suave secret agent.

Talking to NBC, when asked if he'd revised his opinion of who was the best Bond he stated: "If I had been able to see 'Skyfall' before finishing the book, I would have then had to have written a chapter about Daniel Craig, who is a superb Bond.“

The actor, who starred in seven Bond movies, including classics like 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and 'The Man With The Golden Gun' even said that he thinks the latest movie has guaranteed that we'll see another half century of James risking all for Queen and country, adding: “I think it has guaranteed another 50 years for the franchise.”

When asked about what he would have put in the chapter Moore said: “I would have liked to talk about his performance in 'Casino Royale'. His bravery in looking like he knew what he was about in 'Quantum of Solace', which I didn’t understand. I don’t think anybody did. But with Sam Mendes directing, “Skyfall” to me is just an extraordinary piece of motion picture."

It seems that the world agrees with Sir Roger, as 'Skyfall' has already become the highest grossing Bond movie of all time worldwide with an amazing estimated $678m already, and is on course to become the highest grossing film of all time in the UK.
