The new James Bond

It's been recently announced that British Actor, Daniel Craig will replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Not sure how I feel about that. I liked Pierce. And I'm especially not sure how I feel about a blond 007. Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against blond men. My husband is blond (or he was when I met him at 21--his hair has molted into a light brown over the years) and Miles Mountkeefe is blond (the hero in my historical, The War Bride) but for some reason, James Bond in my mind is dark haired, a la Sean Connery.

The new Bond film, "Casino Royale" one of Ian Fleming's early books promises to be "definitely darker, more character and less gadgets." I kind of like the gadgets, but I also like the promise of darker and more character, so I'll just have to wait and see. I'm just sad that Pierce is considered "too old" for the role. Sigh.
