He's Bond. Still Bond. Daniel Craig's future as 007 may be up in the air, but just being the current guy with the title as of February 20 makes him, officially, the second-longest serving James Bond. Shaken (not stirred) martinis all around! Sky News posted the update because … maybe they had a countdown going? They noted that Craig is now No. 2, behind Roger Moore. (Personal favorite Bond, Sean Connery, is only the fourth-longest serving Bond out of six.) If Craig wants to dethrone Moore, he'll have to continue in the role for another 2.5 years. Do you think that will happen? Here's the current ranking of how long each Bond actor has played the role in the franchise, as of Feb. 20 (per Sky News): • Roger Moore – 5,118 days • Daniel Craig – 4,147 days • Pierce Brosnan – 4,146 days • Sean Connery – 3,049 days • Timothy Dalton – 2,863 days • George Lazenby – 875 days (They didn't include David Niven, who was in the 1967 comedy "Casino Royale," since that film is not in the official Eon series.) Roger Moore was in seven Bond films from 1973-1985. Both Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan have been in four Bond films. The most recent was Craig's "Spectre," which came out in 2015. After he filmed that, Craig said he'd rather slash his wrists than play Bond again, but after that he clarified that the statement just came from a place of exhaustion at the end of a marathon shoot. (And he may have anticipated that "Spectre" would not be among the franchise's best. Even Pierce Brosnan said he didn't like it.) There were rumors in Spring 2016 that Daniel Craig turned down $99 million to return as Bond for two more films, but sources shot down those reports to BBC News, saying Craig hadn't made any decisions about his future as 007, and "no decision is likely to be made for a while" since the next film wouldn't be expected in theaters until late 2018 at the earliest. In Fall 2016, Craig eventually clarified, "I love this job, I get a massive kick out of it. And if I can keep getting a kick out of it, I will. […] The things I get to do on a Bond movie, and the type of work it is — there is no other job like it. And were I to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly." So it's possible he will take a crack at Roger Moore's record. Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
The sweetest part of past Spider-Man Andrew Garfield meeting new Spider-Man Tom Holland has nothing to do with either of them: It's the reaction of the fan who taped her own freakout as the moment played out: ANDREW GARFIELD AND TOM HOLLAND MEETING FOR THE FIRST TIME! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS ICONIC MOMENT HAPPENED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! pic.twitter.com/nmYZszizkM — shana (@mytomholland) February 12, 2017 We should all be adored that much by perfect strangers! Andrew Garfield, a current Oscar nominee for "Hacksaw Ridge," played Peter Parker in "The Amazing Spider-Man" in 2012 and the 2014 sequel. Tom Holland made his Peter Parker debut in "Captain America: Civil War" and his first solo film, "Spider-Man: Homecoming," comes out July 7. Both Spideys were at the BAFTAs in London last week, and it turns out that's where they ran into each other for the first time. Tom Holland won the Rising Star award, and backstage he talked to reporters about meeting Andrew Garfield: "We met for the first time on the red carpet today. And it was really, really nice, actually. He's a really, really lovely guy. He's everything I hoped he'd be. He is a brilliant actor, too. I have always been a fan of his work. And I really look forward to picking his brains and seeing if he has any advice for me."
