White House hopeful Barack Obama would make a great James Bond, says Bond actor Daniel Craig. And John McCain could be grumpy spymaster M.
Asked who most resembled the fictional British spy hero -- Democrat Obama or his Republican opponent McCain -- Craig told Parade magazine Wednesday:
"Obama would be the better Bond because, if he's true to his word, he'd be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them."
Craig, who plays 007 in the upcoming "Quantum of Solace," said McCain, 72, was better suited to playing Bond's elderly, often testy boss M, currently played by British actress Judi Dench.
"There is, come to think of it, a kind of Judi Dench quality to McCain," Craig said.
But 007 refused to reveal one top secret: which of the candidates' wives he thinks would make better Bond girl material.
"That's much too dangerous a question," he told Parade. --- msn/Agence France-Presse - 10/22/2008 8:03 PM GMT
