Felix Leiter actor Jeffrey Wright gave an interview to the New York Times recently about his current projects. Wright will be reprising the role of James Bond's CIA contact for a record third time in the series.
You’re also in the midst of reprising your role as the C.I.A. operative and Bond friend Felix Leiter in “No Time to Die.” What can we expect?
Well, I think it’s known that Felix pulls James back into the game and away we go from there.
Do you and Daniel Craig thrill crowds by hanging out together in New York?
I see him every once in a while, but not terribly often. Brooklyn’s a small place, but we’re at the same time both reasonably busy dad-like guys.
So who should be the next James Bond?
I have no opinion. I’m of the “love the one you’re with” idea when it comes to these things — but can we at the very least finish this one and deliver it to folks before we speculate on what’s happening in the future? [Laughs] First things first, baby.
