On an unrelated sidenote, he has been said to resemble [[UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} Russian]] President UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin, and more bizarrely, Deborah Meaden from DragonsDen. On a further unrelated sidenote, it's been shown as canon that he is [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy and Faith's]] fantasy guy.

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.

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''.
