Daniel Craig to play bisexual Roman emperor HadrianJuly 29th, 2008 - 4:18 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 29 (ANI): James Bond actor Daniel Craig is all set to let go of his impeccable tux for ancient Roman robes as he steps into the role of bisexual ruler Hadrian in his upcoming flick Memoirs Of Hadrian.
The Hollywood hottie will be seen playing the art loving roman ruler, who ruled from 117 to 138 AD and is famous for building the wall dividing Scotland from the Great Britain.
Craig will also be seen portraying the rulers affair with a teenage Greek boy Antinuos after, which his wife refuses to bear him any children.
The movie will be helmed by veteran Brit director John Boorman, 75.
Craig raised quite a few eyebrows when he suggested the 007 secret agent should be portrayed as a bisexual in the movie earlier this year.
Why not? I think in this day and age fans would have accepted it. No-one blinks an eye, the Daily Star quoted Craig, as saying. (ANI)
