Name: Daniel Craig
Character: James Bond
Career highlights: Layer Cake, Enduring Love
Physical proximity to role: Low. He's a blonde who wants Bond to look rugged. The result looks peculiar.
Pros: Solid actor; conveys Bond's weary, scarred persona seen in the Ian Fleming novels.
Cons: Cinema is a used to a far more handsome James.
What to expect: Overall, a back to basics Bond, grittier and more brooding. Might lack the humour and charm of predecessors, but may provide a complexity the on-screen 007 lacks.
