The new James Bond movie "Casino Royale" hits theaters on November 17. And it's safe to say it's the most eagerly awaited film of the fall movie season.
That's because a new actor, the relatively unknown Daniel Craig, is taking over the role. Although advance reviews for the film, and Craig, have so far been quite (to use a favorite British word) stellar, there is a bit of an Internet backlash brewing about the decision to cast the sandy-haired Craig as 007.
Craig has been derided by some as the Blond Bond or the Man with the Golden Hair. One Web site, danielcraigisnotbond.com, is even calling for a boycott of "Casino Royale." There is a competing Web site though that defends Craig: danielcraigisbond.com
So does Sony, the studio behind "Casino Royale" (not to be confused with the 1967 Bond spoof of the same name featuring David Niven as 007. And Peter Sellers. And Woody Allen. And Ursula Andress...get the joke?) have something to worry about? The studio would not comment for this story.
