The new James Bond is, still Daniel Craig

The new James Bond is, still Daniel Craig

The actor confirmed on the "Late Show" that he will be returning as 007, but he said this will probably be his last time playing the special agent. Then, it'll be just two years to wait to see whether Bond 25 can live up to the critical and box-office success of its most recent predecessors.

"I've been quite cagey about it", he admitted on Tuesday to US television host Stephen Colbert on CBS's The Late Show.

By all accounts, including his own, Daniel Craig had finished his role as the 007 spy film hero James Bond with his previous film.

Speaking on the Late Show, Craig acknowledged that he'd known "for a couple of months" and admitted having been coy and cagey in interviews earlier in the day, apologising to those he'd been unable to disclose the news to, saying that he'd been saving it for Colbert.

High-flexibility implants have also seen a similar reduction in the maximum price to Rs 56,490. Besides, the Specialised implants for cancer and tumor will be charged at over Rs 1.13 lakh.

Craig, 49, said to Colbert on Tuesday night that he hopes to "go out on a high note". "But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you". After wrapping up Spectre, he was asked if he would play James Bond again. "As long as Eon Productions and MGM gave him time to recover from Spectre and/or do other projects in between Bond movies, it was a near-inevitability that he would return for one last ride", Mendelson writes. Because, if you'll recall, Craig wasn't so hot on the idea of returning as Bond a few years ago.

"Instead of saying something with style and grace, I said something really stupid", he said.

In addition to the Colbert interview, Craig also made the news official on his Twitter account.
