Daniel Craig Becomes Second Longest-Serving James Bond


Daniel Craig has become the second longest-serving James Bond of all time.

The 48-year-old actor - whose future as 007 now seems to be hanging in the balance - has starred in Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

As a bonus, four documentaries, namely - Now Pay Attention 007 (2000); Best Ever Bond (2002); Bond Girls Are Forever (2012) and Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (2012) take a peek behind the scenes - if they can breach the tight security that befits the life of a secret agent, that is.

Moore was officially Bond for seven films and 5118 days, meaning that Craig would need another two-and-a-half years in the role to surpass him. Actors Timothy Dalton (2,863 days) and George Lazenby (875 days) round out the franchise's history at five and six, respectively.

He expressed doubt over continuing in the role in an interview immediately after wrapping "Spectre", famously saying he'd rather "slit his wrists" than make another Bond film. There are already many rumors about who the next Bond could be, though nothing has been confirmed.
