Tabloids claim Daniel Craig ordered to 'bulk up' for Bond 23

21-Jul-2011 • Skyfall

As part of the press junket for "Cowboys & Aliens", the James Bond star made a passing comment about his scrawny character in the sci-fi film scheduled for UK release next month.

"I didn’t want to be big, I wanted to kind of be scrawny, that’s kind of the cowboy characters I always kind of liked, Lucky Luke, kind of scrawny."

Now, a unnamed source has purportedly told the Mirror that "the last thing we want is a skinny Bond. We want him back looking as toned as he did in those swimming trunks in 'Casino Royale'.

"He bulked out originally for the role and we want him to do it again. He’ll be pumping a lot of iron in the next few months."

The anonymous source is a regular trick of the British tabloids and how close the contact is to the production of the 23rd James Bond film remains to be seen.

Thanks to `Risico007` for the alert.
