Daniel Craig wants to quit James Bond

Los Angeles - Daniel Craig wants "to get out" of playing James Bond.

The 44-year-old actor, who reprised his role as the suave spy for the third time in Skyfall, is keen to quit the role, despite having signed up for the 24th and 25th movies in the franchise, and says someone can "wipe their ass" with his contract.

Prior to Skyfall's release, he told Rolling Stone magazine: "I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it.

"But they won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more, but let's see how this one does, because business is business and if it goes down, I've got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their ass with."

Daniel loved working on Skyfall

But following Skyfall's success, Daniel was full of praise for the motion picture and said he "fucking loved" starring in the project.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actor also had a great night at the London premiere of Skyfall last month, saying it is the "biggest and best" he's ever been to.

He told BANG Showbiz: "The reception is incredible. This is my third Bond premiere and it's the biggest and the best."

Skyfall is due to be released in SA on 30 November, and is on circuit in the UK.

    Personally I don't think he's a patch on Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan - but I'm dead chuffed that he and I both went to the same high school in England! Yes folks....Calday Grange Grammar School in a little place called West Kirby just south of Liverpool!!!

    Loved Pierce Brosnan too but can accept he's getting on in years. I've always thought that Clive Owen would make a cool Bond.

    I loved Pierce Brosnan, he could be so cool, not even a hair out of place, he he.

    I think the humour in his comment has been lost, or intentionally ignored in an attempt to drum up page views.

    i wouldnt mind if he goes, they should have kept the same consistency they have kept in the appearance of james bond characters, if they wanted to change they should have gone with will smith or denzel
