Daniel Craig Met Possible Future Bond Idris Elba At A Party — And You Will NOT Be Able To Guess What Happened Next!
Earlier this year, the Luther star said discussions with MGM producers "never happened," and that rumors in the media were actually hurting his chances to play the British action hero!
"Daniel Craig actually set the rumor off. About four years ago he said Idris Elba would be a great Bond, and then it started to creep… Honestly, it's a rumor that's really starting to eat itself. If there was ever any chance of me getting Bond, it's gone."
Flash forward to Saturday's non-televised Governors Awards — the two actors met face to face at the bar in the Ray Dolby Ballroom!
The Spectre star made up for his churning of the rumor mill in the most suave, Bond-like way possible — by planting a kiss on his possible successor!
James Bond Alum Pierce Brosnan Slams Spectre As 'Weak' & Reveals What He Really Thought Of Daniel Craig's Performance!
Pierce Brosnan isn't afraid to speak his mind!
In a recent interview, Pierce opened up about the latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Spectre. Considering Brosnan starred in the cult classic from 1995-2002, we think he definitely has the right to criticize the latest flick!
Speaking on the movie's plot, the actor revealed:
"I was looking forward to it enormously. I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak - it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did."
Ouch! At least P.B. is being honest!
But wait, what does the father think of Daniel Craig's take on the iconic spy? Pierce explained:
Daniel Craig Trades In James Bond's Iconic Martini For Some Much Sillier Drinks — All Served By Bartender Jimmy Kimmel!
James Bond never plays it safe, unless it comes to his cocktail order!
If you know anything about 007, it's that he always orders a vodka martini. Shaken, not stirred. Which doesn't even make sense.
With the host playing bartender, Bond's orders started out basic, then got more and more ridiculous — we had no idea you could order an "Alligator Handjob!" LOLz!

Ah, the silver screen!

Ellen Pompeo Backtracks Once Again Over Those Controversial Daniel Craig Comments! See What She's Saying Now!
Ellen Pompeo must be afraid of those rabid James Bond fans!
On November 5, Ellen apologized once AGAIN for comments she made about Daniel Craig's announcement that he would rather "slit his wrists' than continue to be a part of the beloved franchise. In response to Daniel's dramatic words, the actress said he needed a "reality check".
Obviously, Craig's fans did NOT like the Grey's Anatomy star's assessment and they quickly went on the attack.
While the mom apologized in face of all the backlash, she's now setting the record straight once and for all, saying:
"Listen, I feel bad about that. That was a morning where I was all caffeine-d up, as I usually am at 7 a.m., and I was…scrolling through my Twitter, and I was seeing all this stuff about the refugees fleeing and drowning in the ocean. And then an article about his comments was in my Twitter feed."
Seems fair enough! We've all had regrettable Twitter moments!
