I remember the good old days, even before he was in "The Mother", when Daniel Craig was cast as the creep who would hover on the fringes of a film or TV program. How did he ever become a sex symbol? It's all so fucking hysterical.

I still say this is Craig's best performance.

the jack ... he was always a sex symbol to me. love is the devil anyone?

rob... really? it's hard for me to say this because it makes me sound like I arrived at the party with everyone else but I'm a have to go with Casino Royale... when everything came so gloriously together.

Even with that silly kiss, I still liked him in infamous.

He was simply the best thing in Road to Perdition.

you watch his really old stuff, trash like A Kid in King Arthur's Court, or the fabulous BBC TV series, Our Friends in the North and you think, how the HELL did you become Bond? It's inconceivable.

IMO, he didn't become hot until he hit his 30s. His 20s were generally quite awkward but by the Mother it was like HELLOOO!!!

I first picked him as someone to watch out for in Tomb Raider. He just had that spark in a shit movie which made you go, yup, this guy is going to be huge. He was the most ungeneric thing in a most generic film. But thankfully he can do a better american accent now.

I know, right? Especially towards the end of his part in My Friends In The North, when he became a destitute mess. From that, to 16 year old girls sitting behind me during Quantum Of Solace saying how sexy he is, it's inconceivable.

but of course. it's derek jacobi, tilda swinton and daniel craig. and it's weird and sexy and so on...

This is the sexy/ugly film of the decade. Daniel Craig, Cirian Hinds, Stanley Tucci. Tom Hanks I guess even.

"Cuz it's all so fuckin' hysterical". Craig is great in this, everyone is. The chemistry between Newman and Hanks is phenomenal. The genius of Thomas Newman's score and Conrad Hall's cinematography go without saying. Grossly underrated.

Let us remember that Kate Winslet was also in A Kid in King Arthur's Court. Bless that movie.
