Doing rom-com would be disaster for me: CraigAugust 8th, 2011 - 2:10 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 8 (IANS) Actor Daniel Craig, who has featured as British spy James Bond in “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace”, does not think it would be a good idea for him to appear in a romantic comedy.
“I’m not about to do a rom-com. It would be a disaster. Good movies aren’t just funny. Good movies aren’t just sad. Good movies aren’t just serious. They’re all of those … things,” contactmusic.com quoted the 43-year-old as saying.
“In good movies, you should be involved in the characters. Not getting deep about it but I think that’s more interesting,” he added.
However, Craig admits he would like to see a little more humour in the forthcoming James Bond film “23″, directed by Sam Mendes.
“The humour has to come from truth, at how ridiculous the situations are. If it’s just gags for the sake of gags, I’m not interested in that. I want to get the wryness back into it. It’s a balance, because you’ve got to believe that he’s going to be alive at the end of the movie. That’s a James Bond movie,” he said.
