Actor Daniel Craig confirmed he will return to the role of Agent 007 in the upcoming Bond 25 on The Late TV Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday.
The actor had previously been reported to be attached to the project by The New York Times and others, but never confirmed it personally — until his appearance on Colbert’s show.
‘Yes,’ Craig told Colbert point-blank, when asked if he will return as the secret agent. He said he’s known he would reprise the role for “a couple of months” now. ‘We’ve been discussing it, we’ve just been trying to figure things out,” the actor explained, adding, “I always wanted to, I needed a break.’
Craig also confirmed that it would be the last time he would tackle the iconic role, saying, ‘I just want to go out on a high note, and I can’t wait.’
Earlier Tuesday morning, Craig told Boston radio program Morning Magic 106.7, “I’d hate to burst the bubble, but no decision has been made at the moment.
