Congratulations Daniel & Rachel

You know I am a big fan of Daniel Craig. Woke this morning to the news that he and his “Dream House” co-star Rachel Weisz married quietly. Good for them if they could pull off a wedding without the media hounding them. Best of luck to the newlyweds. As the reporter said they will have some beautiful children.

Loved Him Then, Love Him Now – James Bond

I was about to do this post on someone completely different, a pop star that I adored as a child and he’s still awfully darn good looking now when what should come on my tv but Casino Royale.   I haven’t adored Daniel long enough for him to fit this category and I”ve already used Sir Sean so I’m going with a fictional character today.   I did love James Bond from the time I was old enough to watch Bond movies on TBS.   As a side note, one of the great benefits of growing up in Atlanta in the 70’s was TBS.  It had other call letters then but I can’t remember them I do remember that it was Channel 17 and the best shows came on there.  Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligan’s Island, the Brady Bunch, Hogan’s Hero’s, Wrestling and James Bond movies.  I was too young to go see Bond at the theater but through TBS I got to know and love James Bond.  Sean Connery and then Roger Moore captured my imagination and my heart.  I saw Living Daylights but Timothy Dalton was not the Bond for me.   I have to say I never watched anything but snippets of Pierce Brosnan’s Bonds.  He was Remington Steele.  He could not be James Bond in my mind.  He was too pretty, too polished to be Bond for me.  But nonetheless the thought of Bond, James Bond with his martini shaken not stirred thank you very much lingered then along came Daniel.  Ahhh Daniel.  I was not familiar with him as an actor prior to his being casted as my childhood hero.   But I planned to go the movie opening night.  In fact my son and his friends made a party of it.   In my opinion Daniel nailed the role.  He was ruggedly handsome, drop dead sexy, tender when needed and even made me laugh a bit.  I believe that Sir Ian Fleming would have been pleased.   So here are the Bonds (including George Lazenby).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daniel Back as Bond

It’s official Daniel will be back as James Bond in November 2012 (Too far away but it’s something to hope for) SO in anticipation of more Smoking hot Daniel as James Bond.  Enjoy some yummy pics.

 

   

How many days must we wait????

Ohhhhhh Daniel

So I’m having this conversation with friends about the trend toward Cowboy books in romance writing.  One writer we know actually writes “Cowboy Kink”.  I wasn’t getting.  I mean I went through my “Urban Cowboy” phase.   I have asked more than one guy “Are you a “REAL” Cowboy”     I wanted to dance to “Can I Have This Dance” at my wedding .   But that phase passed just as it did for the rest of the world I thought.

Then I start writing and I am looking at these sites that sell romance novels and the phase is apparently back.  So this was my state of mind when I go see the Deathly Hollows.  I am watching the previews when who should appear on the screen in full glorious color, Daniel Craig in Cowboys and Aliens.   Let me tell you I do not “Squeee”  I did however squeal in delight, much to my sixteen year old son’s chagrin.  So we have Daniel and Harrison Ford in Western wear.  Ohhhh My.   So Daniel as Cowboy and /or Alien, I get the cowboy craze.  Okay so he is dirty but would you really mind.  It also gives one the opportunity to think of him bathing…..ohhhh my.  

So watch out for Cowboys and Aliens not in the theaters until next July but something to look forward to then.

And just to wrap they day up let’s throw in a shirtless pic.  Found one I haven’t posted yet.  Enjoy.

Good News….

Daniel Craig is slated to be in another movie to be released in December of next year.   The Girl With the Dragon is scheduled to open December 21, 2011,  The Adventures of TinTin is scheduled for December 23, 2011, so I’m seeing a very merry Christmas for Daniel fans.   Cowboys & Aliens is on tap for July and Dream House sometime next year.     2011 is going to be a really good year. 

Have We Seen the End….

of the Daniel Craig era in the James Bond series?  I certainly hope not.    Those of us who follow Daniel and the Bond series know that financial woes at MGM have delayed Bond 23, but it’s looking more and more like the delay is going to keep our Daniel from bringing Bond back to the screen.     I don’t want to start the guessing of who will be next I want to hold on to what hope may be left that we’ll get to hear Daniel order his martini shaken not stirred one more time or catch him in a tux

And out of the tux of course

Totally Hot, Totally Shirtless – DANIEL CRAIG

Okay it’s a shirtless Saturday here at Live, Love, Laugh & Blog and today I bring you one of my all-time favorites, Daniel Craig.  Believe it or not it was hard to find a variety of pictures of Daniel shirtless we have the well known often scene shot of Daniel emerging from the water in those blue swim trunks

Then there’s the picture of Daniel in the black swim trunks

One of my favorite shirtless shots of Daniel is from Casino Royale when he is tied to the chair.  OH MY

I had to make myself look through a whole lot of other pictures to find some different pictures of Daniel Shirtless so to wrap up our Shirtless Saturday two more pics of Daniel.  One from Tomb Raider and I’ m not exactly sure where the other came from, but does it really matter????

 

Daniel Craig buys Penthouse in NYC

Okay so there just isn’t much to blog about Daniel.   He and Satsuki bought a penthouse on Warren Street in New York City.    Does it mean he’s going to do more Broadway?   Will they make it home?  I feel certain it means he’ll be spending more time in New York and that can’t be a bad thing.  I just want him back on the big screen.  Until then, I’ll keep watching what we have already.  Forced myself to watch Lara Croft last night to see him.  There were definitely some “Oh my” scenes.  

So until Cowboys and Aliens comes out I guess we’ll just have to do with Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Daniel’s older stuff.  I may even suffer through the Golden Compass again.

Waiting for Daniel Craig

Dream House is in post-production, but I don’t believe the planned release date is until December 2011.  Cowboys and Aliens is set for July of next year.   Again, I must say it’s been since 2008 with Defiance and Quantum of Solace since we’ve seen Daniel on the big screen.  It’s entirely too long but alas what are we to do.   I’m still terribly distressed by the fact that we will probably never see Daniel back as Bond.   I guess we’ll just have to wait until next summer to see Daniel as a cowboy.  I certainly hope it’s worth the wait.  If only we could see this on the big screen again.

Bad News for Bond

Filming of Bond 23  has been postponed, indefinitely.  I’ve already bemoaned the fact that we won’t be seeing Daniel on the big screen until next year and now no Bond indefinitely.   Surely MGM will come up with the money to make it happen.   I love to see Daniel in other roles too but I was so looking forward to seeing where they would take him in Bond 23.    Maybe something will come through and in the meantime I’ll wait for Cowboys &  Aliens.
