Daniel Craig wants to quit James Bond role

Nov 7 2012, 10:03am CST | by

Daniel Craig wants ''to get out'' of playing James Bond and says someone can ''wipe their ass'' with his contract.

Daniel Craig wants ''to get out'' of playing James Bond.
The 44-year-old actor - who reprised his role as the suave spy for the third time in 'Skyfall' - is keen to quit the role, despite having signed up for the 24th and 25th movies in the franchise, and says someone can ''wipe their ass'' with his contract.
Prior to Skyfall's release, he told Rolling Stone magazine: ''I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more, but let's see how this one does, because business is business and if the [bleep] goes down, I've got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their ass with.''
But following Skyfall's success, Daniel was full of praise for the motion picture and said he ''f***ing loved'' starring in the project.
The 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' actor also had a great night at the London premiere of 'Skyfall' last month, saying it is the ''biggest and best'' he's ever been to.
He told BANG Showbiz: ''The reception is incredible. This is my third Bond premiere and it's the biggest and the best.''
'Skyfall' sees Daniel star alongside Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Berenice Marlohe.
