"Quantum of Solace" comes out next month, and Daniel Craig is out promoting that and Barack Obama. He can't vote in America, but the British Craig has strong feelings anyway.
"I strongly feel there needs to be a new way forward," Craig tells Playboy magazine in an interview on newsstands today. "Barack Obama is pushing things in the right direction. I'm excited about the election. Unfortunately, things will probably get dirty. I hope Obama can stay above the fray ... I'm hopeful for the first time in a long, long while. It's one of the most exciting elections in my lifetime."
"Solace" is Craig's second turn as Bond and he's rumored to be committed to another two films. True? Craig confirms, but seems cagey.
"I did sign on for four," he says in the interview, "so a piece of paper says there are two more to do. But let's see how this one goes. In the film business, everything doesn't always go according to plan. We'll wait and see. If it goes wrong, we'll have to rethink things."
