  • -Yeah. Oh, look at that.

  • -Hello. How are you? You didn't get the memo.

  • -[ Laughs ] I should have.

  • -So I'm just -- How much of a fool do I look?

  • -No, you -- I can't believe --

  • Of course you would do this. You're the best.

  • -This is how I walk around my house all the time.

  • -[ Laughs ] Yeah.

  • -I insist everybody who comes to the door has to put one on.

  • And know how to tie it -- that's the other thing.

  • -Yeah. So it's classy, but it's also dressed down.

  • It's both. You know how to do it.

  • Today is James Bond Day. -That's right.

  • -There's no better way to celebrate

  • than with James Bond himself. I'm honored.

  • Thank you so much for coming. -Pleasure is all mine.

  • -Oh, please. -Thank you for having me.

  • -It was announced on Friday that the release of "No Time to Die"

  • is now being pushed till the spring.

  • And I have a question for you. Be honest.

  • Is this just because you want to be James Bond

  • for a few months longer?

  • -Just eke every second I can out of it.

  • -Yeah. -Here's the deal.

  • This thing is just bigger than all of us,

  • and we just want people to go and see this movie

  • in the right way and safe way.

  • You know, cinemas, you know, all around the world

  • are closed at the moment, and we want to release the movie

  • at the same time all around the world,

  • and this isn't the right time. -Yeah.

  • -So, you know, fingers crossed,

  • April 2nd is going to be our date.

  • -It's such a big film. -Yes.

  • -And all of these Bonds are,

  • but they have been ever since you took over 15 years ago.

  • They're just the most insane --

  • Every movie would top each other with the next one.

  • And I'm just like -- You know, some people go like,

  • "Oh, my gosh, why wouldn't you just want that gig forever?"

  • I'm like, "Because it's hard work. It's crazy."

  • -You know, I mean, there comes a time where, you know --

  • I've given it everything I can.

  • I'm so glad that I came back and did this last one.

  • We had lots of loose threads that we hadn't tied up,

  • and the story, it just didn't feel complete.

  • And I just was so --

  • You know, I needed a break, I'll truly admit it.

  • I just needed to kind of get my head away from it for a while,

  • and once I had and we started talking about story lines

  • and things that we could do and where we could take it,

  • I was like, "Oh, look, I'm in. Let's do one more

  • and try to sort of, like, finish the story."

  • We started the story in "Casino Royale,"

  • and actually we've kind of been very -- You know.

  • I think we very successfully kind of continued that story

  • all the way through.

  • And this was the chance to just round it off.

  • -Do you remember when it was formally announced?

  • You can take it off. Sure, sure. Take it off. Yeah.

  • Do you remember when you were formally announced

  • as the next James Bond, when it was official?

  • -Yeah, I mean, I will never forget any of that time.

  • It was some of the most exciting, dramatic --

  • all of the things -- time of my life.

  • I was in -- God.

  • When it was officially announced --

  • That's just now I think it was officially announced,

  • like, 15 years ago, like this week or something, or next week.

  • -Yeah, it is. Yeah. -But I was in Baltimore

  • filming with Nicole Kidman.

  • And Barbara Broccoli,

  • the producer of the Bonds,

  • one of the producers of the Bonds,

  • phoned me up and just said to me, "Over to you, kiddo."

  • -Oh!

  • -But this is the thing.

  • You know, I was in Baltimore. I had a night off.

  • I had a day off the following day, and I was like,

  • "Well, what am I going to do? I can't tell anybody."

  • I couldn't tell anybody because it was like --

  • She said, "Don't tell a soul.

  • Don't tell your family. Don't tell."

  • So I'm like...like --

  • So, I was in Whole Foods supermarket

  • literally with a shopping cart

  • with deodorant and washing liquid

  • and, you know, doing my weekly shopping.

  • So, I literally pushed that

  • like, you know, down an aisle like that,

  • and walked into the liquor section.

  • I bought myself a bottle of vodka, a bottle of vermouth,

  • and a shaker and a glass.

  • And I went back.

  • And this is the thing. You may not believe this.

  • I'd never had a martini before.

  • I'd never mixed myself a martini, ever.

  • I'd never actually drunk a martini before.

  • I kind of understood what it was,

  • and I was like, "Okay. I'm going to give this a go."

  • People talk about -- It was in Chicago I think

  • when I was doing "Road to Perdition"

  • when people were drinking martinis --

  • the first time I'd ever seen a proper martini.

  • And I did actually taste one.

  • Then I went, "This is just vodka."

  • And they went, "Yeah." I said, "Very dry."

  • [ Speaking indistinctly ]

  • -Yeah, it's so dry that it's just actually vodka.

  • -It's just a glassful of vodka! Let's be honest.

  • So I did half a bottle and stumbled to a bar in Baltimore,

  • of which there are many really many good bars in Baltimore.

  • -Yeah, I love Baltimore.

  • -If you put a gun against my head,

  • I couldn't find the bar again, I was so drunk when I got there.

  • And I sat and I must have drunk another three martinis

  • at the bar. And the guy -- I must have been smiling.

  • I just must have been, like, from ear to ear.

  • And the guy kept on saying, "What's going on?

  • What's going on? You're in a good mood."

  • I said, "Listen, you wouldn't [bleep]

  • believe me if I told you."

  • -He's like, "This guy's crazy, man.

  • What is -- He's just laughing going, 'I'm James Bond!'"

  • -I must have literally -- I must have been...

  • I can't imagine. I must have looked crazy.

  • I mean, the fact he even spoke to me was probably, you know --

  • -But what a tough thing to keep secret.

  • And you're just like, "Oh, my gosh."

  • But, I mean, there is one person you did tell,

  • which I love this story.

  • You told your mom.

  • -Yeah, of course. I mean, you know, I did.

  • And then she got -- Yeah, that's right. Yeah.

  • I told my mother, and she then got done by the press.

  • Because she is very tight-lipped.

  • But, of course, she got a phone call from "The London Times,"

  • who basically said, "You must be very proud."

  • And she was like, "Well, of course I'm proud."

  • And then that's it. -That's all they needed.

  • -Daniel Craig's mum announces Bond.

  • -Confirms it. -Which is not actually,

  • when you think about it, not a bad way to get announced.

  • Is it, really? -Everyone is going to be

  • asking you about what you will miss most about being Bond.

  • I was going to ask you, what's the one thing

  • that you won't miss at all about being James Bond?

  • -Um, I don't get out very often,

  • but sometimes I will be somewhere,

  • maybe in a hotel lobby or somewhere,

  • you know, where there's a bar maybe.

  • It can be literally 9:00 a.m. in the morning.

  • And a martini will be shoved in front of me.

  • And I'm like --

  • Back in the day, there may be a time

  • when a 9:00 a.m. martini may have been a kind of nice thing.

  • But just -- I'm just not. They don't go down so well now.

  • 9:00 a.m.?

  • I love a Martini, but 9:00 a.m. is a bit tough.

  • I won't miss that.

  • -We have an exclusive clip from "No Time to Die"

  • that we're premiering right here when we come back.

  • I've actually never even seen it yet.

  • It's a special link. So I'm freaking out.

  • Thanks for this. Stick around, everybody.

-Yeah. Oh, look at that.
