Now the stories are starting to come full circle.

This seems like a big mistake on their part.
Lana Del Rey may have one of the most emotionally charged voices in the industry, but that wasn't enough to score her the theme song for the newest James Bond film Spectre.
As you're probably aware, Sam Smith was the lucky Brit selected to follow in Adele's footsteps off Skyfall… except that his Writing's on the Wall was not nearly as successful as his predecessor's Oscar-winning ballad.
Unfortunately for the Daniel Craig vehicle, they may have missed a big opportunity for a hit because, as it turns out, Lana says she would have jumped at the chance to helm the action flick, saying:
Well this is pretty cool!
The HUGE amount of hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens means that nearly every actor in Hollywood wants to be a part of the flick!
While we don't know about those Daniel Craig playing a stormtrooper rumors, we do have confirmation — thanks to a sizzle reel shown at San Diego Comic-Con this year — that long time Star Wars fan Simon Pegg has a secret role in the film.
Before this weekend we only got a quick glimpse of Pegg in partial costume, but thanks to new behind-the-scenes footage we now know what the 45-year-old actor will look like!
Not only is the Shaun of the Dead star an alien but he's absolutely unrecognizable once he's in full costume!
Ch-ch-check out the pic (below) of Pegg in his FULL costume!
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!
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:
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!
Watch the video (above) to see Mr. Bond expand his palate!
Ah, the silver screen!
This weekend's box office numbers are coming through, and we are learning more about how Spectre, the Peanuts Movie and new releases like Love The Coopers did over the last several days!
In results that probably shouldn't surprise you,
We're not surprised!
Despite Craig slightly changing his tune, the Brit's Spectre costar Ralph Fiennes defended him while talking to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night!
While talking about Daniel's controversial comments, Fiennes said:
