Daniel Craig Turns Down A Buttload Of Cash Rather Than Play Bond Again

I'll say that Daniel Craig is one of my favorite James Bonds. He's resurrected Bond's dark sociopathic yet charming side that's been lacking for decades before. Still, all things must come to an end and he can't play the part forever. Especially because he doesn't want to. I mean, he REALLY doesn't want to. Earlier he said that he would rather commit suicide than play the part again. But that could just be drama queen actor histrionics. No, he doesn't want to do it. The producers of the Bond movies offered Craig $98.7 Million to do two more movies and he turned it down. Think about that. Nearly a hundred million dollars and he's like, "nope". Maybe it's because I am not a multi-millionaire handsome actor that already has more cash than I could ever use, but I would do just about anything for a hundred million dollars.

Seriously, I would dress up as Spongebob Squarepants and dance for tourists in the middle of war torn Syria for a hundred million dollars. I'd star in the Nickleback biopic. Maybe i'm just a whore.
