Not going well for the new guy!


EXCLUSIVE: THE NAME'S BOND.. BROKE BOND
BIFF! 007 Craig loses two front teeth in first fight scene BASH! The baddie who whacked him was only a henchman
By Grant Hodgson

NEW James Bond Daniel Craig has already failed to make the grade as a tough guy - after a villain knocked out two of his teeth in his FIRST fight scene.

Craig, 37, was in Prague filming the remake of Casino Royale when the stunt went wrong.

As the shaken star staggered backwards clutching his bleeding mouth, cameramen thought it was a brilliant piece of acting.

But they quickly realised the new 007 was really hurt. His injuries were so bad local dentistry experts could not treat him. So Craig's dentist was flown out from London for emergency surgery in the Czech capital Prague.

Dentist Rod McNeil, based in London's Cavendish Square, fixed caps to his broken teeth then flew back to Britain.

The actor has now been given six gumshields and told to wear them while filming stunt scenes for the £60million movie at Prague's Barrandov Studios.

An insider said: "Daniel was filming with some minor actors when he got hit in the face. He was reeling from a heavy blow and staggered back holding his face.

"He put his hand to his mouth but the blood started to seep through his fingers - it was horrible. He did not make a fuss though, and fortunately the accident will not affect the film.

"He soon got back to work, and will just have to wear a gumshield during action scenes for the film.

"These are so his teeth look perfect when his mouth is open and cameras pan in on him."

The Sunday Mirror revealed last year how Craig would be starring alongside stunning Thandie Newton. But he was dubbed "James Bland" last October when unveiled as the sixth Bond for failing to match up to tough guys Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.

Craig, who has dated Sienna Miller and Kate Moss, admitted he was terrified when he arrived at a Press conference after a speedboat ride up the Thames.

When asked why he should play 007, the Chester-born actor simply said: "Why not?"

The latest blow to his image is believed to have come in a fight scene involving an actor playing a henchmen to evil baddie Le Chiffre - played by Danish actor Mads Mikkelson, 41. Bond was supposed to be confronting a terrorist bomber at an embassy in which he ends up throwing him through a window after first knocking out other baddies. Instead Craig came off worst.

According to a film insider, panic set in as director Martin Campbell and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson realised how badly he'd been hurt.

After failing to find a local dentist who could quickly repair the damage, they opted to fly Craig's dentist in from London. Dr McNeil, of McNeil & Barrett, flew out to Prague and spent the day in the studio's medical room carrying out the repair work. He repaired Daniel's broken teeth with caps using a record of his teeth he'd brought with him.

A source said the incident happened at the beginning of the month. He added: "Daniel was trying to say, 'I'm all right', but he could barely speak. It was obvious he was in a lot of pain.

"Everybody was in a panic because they knew any injuries to Daniel could mean a delay and cost a fortune. It could even have delayed the film's release, which would have been disastrous. No local dentist said they could repair Daniel's teeth properly at such short notice so producers flew his personal dentist in. He had to wait a few hours before his dentist could get to Prague, but afterwards he was almost as good as new.

"Daniel's dentist did a great job - and only charged producers for his expenses. As he is an old friend he did not make him pay for the work. Daniel was really grateful and glad to get back to working so quickly."

Shooting for Craig and the rest of the film's crew in the Bahamas is due to start on Thursday at the 200-year-old Buena Vista Hotel in Nassau, which will double as the Liberian Embassy in Madagascar. Scenes will also be shot in Italy and at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire before the cast and crew return to the Czech Republic in March.

When it was announced Craig was to star in the remake of 1967 spoof Casino Royale, the actor was mocked after arriving at the Press conference surrounded by burly Marines wearing an unflattering life jacket.

Speaking afterwards, Daniel also did 007's macho reputation no favours when he said: "I would like to thank the Royal Marines for bringing me in like that, and scaring the s*** out of me." It's not the first time that Craig has taken a beating during a film. In the hit movie Layer Cake, in which his cocaine-dealer character had sizzling love scenes with actress Sienna Miller, he was also given a thorough seeing-to.

Craig's predecessor as Bond, Pierce Brosnan, 52, said he was "gutted" to have lost the role after four outings as the secret agent. He also said he would love to resume the role if Craig's version proved to be a flop.

Actress Lois Maxwell, who played Miss Moneypenny in 14 Bond films, was also critical of Craig landing the iconic role.

She said he wasn't as handsome as previous Bonds Roger Moore and Sean Connery She added: "He has what you'd call an interesting face. Perhaps the make-up girls could do something to him, maybe give him a wig."

The new film will feature all the usual gadgets and special effects associated with 007. Bond will drive a sleek new Aston Martin DBS and the original DB5 from the 1960s, which appeared in Goldfinger and Thunderball.

French beauty Eva Green was also recently unveiled as the latest Bond girl. The 25-year-old actress plays Bond's love interest, Vesper Lynd. Dame Judith Dench also reprises her role as Bond's boss, M.

In the film, based on author Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel, Bond combats a sinister casino owner who is using his winnings to fund terrorism.

Dad-of-one Craig is now dating Bond Girl Satsuki Mitchell, 29, after splitting with German actress Heike Makatsch. The Sunday Mirror revealed last year how he had a fling with Layer Cake co-star Sienna Miller after her then boyfriend Jude Law's steamy affair with their children's nanny.

He also dated Kate Moss before she dated junkie rocker, Pete Doherty. In the early 1990s he married jazz singer Harley Loudon, 37, and the couple have a daughter, Ella, 12.

Casino Royale is set for release on November 17.

Isn’t it kind of a tradition for the actor playing 007 to get his teeth knocked out during a stunt?

I seem to remember this happening to Roger Moore and Sean Connery as well.

Looks like he'll be needing PERMABOND for the rest of his life!

They never shoud have ditched the last Bond (name escapes me). He was the best, IMO...

This is worse than that "hip, groovy" Bond they had that nobody liked.

He's an anti-gun fag AND he gets his ass whipped in his first fight scene. Not to mention that he looks nothing like the Bond persona. Pathetic.

This may also be a stunt to get people to go see the movie, just to see if they can pick out the scene where the FNG gets clocked. I have no plans to see any further new Bond movies until this SOB is replaced by someone decent.

Bond movies have sucked since Pierce took over, so this is no big loss.

The new Bond is "ADAMENTLY ANTI-GUN"...

Casting him is a huge mistake. This will turn off all of us Bond fans to the point we just might not bother to go watch the darned thing. What were they thinking?

How about this for an alternative headline...........

"Bond Bitch Slapped by Geriatric Dane!"

You flag burning sumbitches have been warned!

Criag's another anti playing a role. If they're REMAKING bond films, it's time to hang up the Walther.

ETA: If Craig remakes GOLDFINGER odds are 5 to 1 on Pussy Galore in the barn scene.

Unless there's two Thandie Newton's, she's not good at all. She looks more like some girl you'd see working in Wal-Mart than one that belongs in a James Bond movie:



That will be one movie I'll never bother watching. That's sad since I've seen all of the James Bond movies so far until this point.z

Casino Royale was Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel. It was the only one not sold to Eon Productions. As a result, CBS TV first adapted it for an episode of "Climax!" (1954) in 1954, starring Barry Nelson as CIA agent Jimmy Bond. When plans began to adapt the novel as a motion picture, the original thought was to do a straight film of the novel. But with the success of Sean Connery's Bond, it was decided the only way a rival Bond film could survive would be as a parody. The Peter Sellers sequence is the only part of Ian Fleming's novel to make it into the film. The confrontation with Le Chiffre in the casino, the plan to discredit Le Chiffre with SMERSH and the villain's execution by enemy agents are all in the novel. So is the notion of Bond writing a book on baccarat, and the element of Vesper being an enemy spy. Reportedly, Eon Productions has been trying to buy back the rights to Casino Royale for years, in hopes of someday making a serious Bond film out of the novel. Despite being regarded as a "flop" financially in the press, the film actually did quite well in financial terms. Despite its very high production budget and additional costs in marketing and advertising, it still managed to make a net profit of well over $5 million for the studio. The film was generally reported as a failure financially in the press because it was outperformed at the box office by the official Bond film You Only Live Twice (1967), which was released in the same year, and because of the film's high costs. But in actuality the studio still made a large profit off the film and although it didn't match You Only Live Twice at the box office it still managed to do quite well. Casino Royale was the 3rd highest grossing film for the year behind only The Jungle Book (1967) and You Only Live Twice.

It came-out in 1967. Peter Sellers played James Bond, and Orson Welles was in it. IIRC, there were ten different writers and five different directors. It was a complete train wreck.z

Made with David Niven and Peter Sellers, I think. I last saw it thirty+ years ago. More of a spoof of Bond, even though Casino Royale was a book by Ian Fleming.
