Daniel Craig waited all day Tuesday just to tell Stephen Colbert he is coming back as James Bond one last time for the 25th anniversary of the franchise.

“I just want to go out on a high note. I can’t wait,” he said.
Craig is not the most beloved James Bond, many thinking he isn’t attractive enough to portray the traditionally sexy character, especially compared to Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan.
On top of the criticism of his looks was his comment to Time Out London in 2015 after the filming of the last Bond movie, “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists.”
He explained his response to Colbert, “…instead of saying something with style and grace, I gave a really stupid answer.”
