    That's not a 44 mag, it's a semi-auto (you can see the grip serrations on the slide) with a silencer on it.

    I'm not really diggin' him as the new Bond, Brosnan was better.

    I'm going to wait until I see it to judge how well he does Bond. I wasn't a big fan of Brosnan and when I watch the Roger Moore Bond movies now they seem pathetic compared to my memories. Connery is the only one who holds up well IMO.

    I think Craig was a brilliant choice. They recognize that the last few Bond movies were a joke.

    Craig was in a great British gangster movie called "Layer Cake." Rent it some time (especially if you liked Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels). I have no doubt that got him the role. Check out the trailer:

    I couldn't stand Roger Moore as Bond either.

    A fop and a dandy compared to Connery.

    I'll have to check it out. "Lock Stock & two smoking barrels" was good fun.

    There are now reports that James Bond fans have organized a web site, www.craignotbond.com, to protest the casting of Craig as 007 and to boycott "Casino Royale." Meanwhile, in his first fight scene while filming "Casino Royale," Craig had two of his teeth knocked out. I guess that he was shaken, not stirred.

    Also, he reportedly climbed into his Aston Martin, only to discover that it was a stick.

    Which he doesn't know how to drive.

    They're trying to catch some of that "Smoking Barrels" gangster grit, create a tougher, more working-class Bond. Less Evelyn Waugh, more Trainspotting.

    It took an old Bond to come to the rescue of the new Bond.

    Roger Moore, who played Agent 007 in seven of the James Bond movies, said critics of the film franchise's new star, Daniel Craig, should give him a chance.

    "He's a helluva good actor," said Moore, 78, noting that critics haven't even seen Craig in the role yet. "So why attack him?"

    The fair-haired Craig, whose recent screen credits include "Munich" and "The Jacket," was tapped last October to play the secret-agent icon in "Casino Royale."

    A group of Bond fans have launched a Web site (http://www.craignotbond.com ) to protest the hiring of Craig and boycott the upcoming movie.

    Moore, whose Bond films include "A View to Kill," "Moonraker" and "Live and Let Die," suggested the group was merely trying to attract people to their Web site.

    He also dismissed suggestions that Bond is obsolete in a post-Cold War, post-9/11 world.

    "Bond is fantasy, there's no real substance to it," he said. "It's a figment of imagination. ... (It's) sort of crazy, you know, a spy who is recognized wherever he goes. Spies ain't like that."

    Moore was in Toronto on Wednesday for a UNICEF event. He is a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. children's agency.

    He will be in Quebec City this weekend to take part in a charity film festival, "Vue sur Bond 007," organized by filmmaker Hilary Saltzman, daughter of Canadian-born Harry Saltzman.

    The senior Saltzman, who died in 1994, was, along with Albert Broccoli, the co-producer of most of the early Bond films.
