Daniel Craig has confirmed reports that he will not return for a sixth James Bond movie.
The actor was a guest host of Saturday Night Live over the weekend, breaking down rumors that suggested he was considering another movie after the late release of ‘No Time to Die’ in November.
In his monologue on the comedy show, the Briton said: “This next James Bond movie will be the last, but it will be one of the best.”
He then scoffed at the script writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, suggesting that the new action blockbuster seats his successful television drama Fleabag, in which he played a dysfunctional 20-year-old who falls in love with a priest.
“We got Phoebe Waller-Bridge from Fleabag to come and help with the script,” he said. “It’s not going to be that different, but occasionally I turn to the camera and say:” The name is Bond, James Bond … Is it bad that I like the Pope? “
He then offered an “advance” in No Time to Die, during which he played an over-excited player surrounded by members of the SNL cast.
Later in the program, the delay related to the coronavirus of his film was mentioned in a joke, with regular SNL Colin Jost suggesting that the film should be renamed “Time to Die.”
