new bond

So, the new James Bond is Daniel Craig. Surprise, surprise! This, however, is retarded:

Craig’s selection – revealed by having the actor travel down the River Thames aboard a military boat, wearing Bond’s trademark suit and dark glasses – ends months of speculation over the role of agent 007.

He must have felt real special, paraded down the river like a monkey in a suit. Craig is a little rougher around the edges than Brosnan, and the last Brosnan movie was a lot darker than the more recent Bond movies – does this signal any sort of return to something closer to Fleming’s Bond?
