Daniel Craig: 'I'd be a disaster in a rom-com'
Monday 08 August 2011
Daniel Craig would be a "disaster" in a romantic comedy.
The 'Cowboys & Aliens' star - who is best known for appearing as British spy James Bond in 'Casino Royale' and 'Quantum of Solace' - doesn't think a good film can be restricted by genre, but believes it would be a bad idea for him to appear in a hilarious love story.
He said: "I'm not about to do a rom-com. It would be a disaster.
"Good moves aren't just funny. Good movies aren't just sad. Good movies aren't just serious. They're all of those f**king things.
"In good movies, you should be involved in the characters. Not getting deep about it but I think that's more interesting."
However, Daniel admits he would like to see a little more humour in the forthcoming 23 James Bond film, which will be directed by Sam Mendes.
He said: "The humour has to come from truth, at how ridiculous the situations are. If it's just gags for the sake of gags, I'm not interested in that. I want to get the wryness back into it.
"It's a balance, because you've got to believe that he's going to be alive at the end of the movie. That's a James Bond movie."
