Cast in the role for the 2006 reboot of the franchise in ''Film/{{Casino Royale|2006}}'', he reprised the role in 2008's ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', 2012's ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' (which is incidentally the 50th anniversary year of the first Bond film, ''Film/DrNo''), and 2015's ''Film/{{Spectre}}''. He was also used as the design base and voice of Bond in ''VideoGame/BloodStone'', the ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' tie-in video game and the remake of the ''[[VideoGame/GoldenEye1997 GoldenEye 007]]'' game for the Wii. He also escorted none other than UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen in a short film for the London Olympics opening ceremony.

Despite being known primarily for Bond, Craig has had major roles in a number of other big-budget films, including: Angelina Jolie's love interest/rival in ''Film/LaraCroftTombRaider'' (2001), Irish mobster Conner Rooney in ''Film/RoadToPerdition'' (2002), Afrikaner Mossad team-member Steve in the [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielberg]]-directed ''Film/{{Munich}}'' (2005), Lord Asriel in the [[Film/TheGoldenCompass film adaption]] of ''[[HisDarkMaterials The Golden Compass]]'' (2007), Jewish resistance leader Tuvia in ''Film/{{Defiance}}'' (2008), and protagonist Jake Lonergan of ''Film/CowboysAndAliens'' (2011), lead role Mikael Blomkvist in the Creator/DavidFincher adaption of ''Film/TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo'', and Mr. Sakharine/Red Rackham in the [[DreamTeam Dream-Production-Team]] motion capture film adaption of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin''.

He also has had a long and healthy career as a stage actor, including playing Joe at in the Royal National Theatre's production of ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'' in addition to starring in Broadway productions of ''A Steady Rain'' (opposite Creator/HughJackman) and Harold Pinterís ''Betrayal''. He will soon return to the stage for an off-Broadway production of Othello, playing Iago opposite David Oyelowo as the title character.

Daniel Craig is one of us, being a self-described "old hand {{Trekkie}}", as well as being a fan of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' and, of course, ''Series/DoctorWho''. He tried for the role of Montgomery Scott in the Creator/JJAbrams ''Trek'' film, but lost it to Creator/SimonPegg. It was also his idea to have [[{{Enya}} "Orinoco Flow"]] playing over a certain key scene in ''Dragon Tattoo''.
