Daniel Craig rejects rom-coms and talks humour in Bond 23

09-Aug-2011 • Skyfall

Daniel Craig, the current 007 star, has admitted he is not fit for a romantic comedy -- Digital Spy reports. Whilst Craig is appearing in blockbuster "Cowboys & Aliens" and has James Bond 23 lined up for November, his predecessor Pierce Brosnan has indulged in a few rom-coms since his time as 007, notably "Mama Mia!" and the upcoming "All You Need Is Love".

"I'm not about to do a rom-com. It would be a disaster. Good movies aren't just funny. Good movies aren't just sad. Good movies aren't just serious. They're all of those f**king things. In good movies, you should be involved in the characters. Not getting deep about it but I think that's more interesting," Craig told the press.

On the forthcoming James Bond 23: "The humour has to come from truth, at how ridiculous the situations are. If it's just gags for the sake of gags, I'm not interested in that. I want to get the wryness back into it," he said. "It's a balance, because you've got to believe that he's going to be alive at the end of the movie. That's a James Bond movie."
