  • Daniel Craig: From Bond to Tintin

    Where do you go after you’ve played the coolest super-spy going? Why Tintin, of course!

    But Daniel Craig won’t be playing the title role (that privilege, rumour has it, has been saved for former Billy Elliott star Jamie Bell).

    Daniel will play nefarious sailor Red Rackham in the 3-D version of The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn.
