Does Daniel Craig have a future as a stand-up comedian?

His flippant comment about not wanting to reprise his role as James Bond may not have elicited any laughter, but his ‘Spectre’ co-stars still vouch for Daniel Craig’s undeniable (and rather dry) sense of humour.


Naomie Harris — who plays Miss Moneypenny in the spy franchise — says Craig’s “sense of humour… doesn’t come across particularly well in print,” but he certainly has it in spades.

By his own admission, the 47-year-old actor played the part of on-set prankster; though his jokes were crass and quite unlike his suave 007 character. Call them whiffy, or simply categorise them as fart gags, but Craig got his kicks by targeting co-stars Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux while they worked on ‘Spectre’.

In a recent interview he admitted, “You do whatever you can. The fact of it is, we do very long days — I’m not complaining — and if you’ve been on a movie set, it’s kind of intense and often very boring, so you just have a laugh.”

Comedy being the best cure, we’re sure it alleviated the Bond star’s boredom. Now if only he’d loosen up in an interview or two!
