But I don't think Craig needs the role of Bond in the same way numerous other actors who have played that role have.

Craig (49) was met with rapturous applause as he replied "yes" when the United States presenter asked if he will play Bond again.

It's official: Daniel Craig is playing James Bond again. "I just want to go out on a high note and I can't wait", Craig added. That was his explanation to Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" on Tuesday night when he finally confirmed once and for all that he will play 007 a fifth time.

"I have been quite cagey about it", the actor told Colbert, according to the Guardian. If I was somehow granted the ability, I admittedly don't think I'd be curious enough to scrap his Bond films from existence to see what kind of actor he would have become instead, but Craig's go-for-broke exuberance in Logan Lucky definitely has me looking forward to spending more time with this version of the actor in the years to come.

Craig's return had been subject to furious speculation for years.

Instacart is still doing Target deliveries in Chicago, Minneapolis and San Francisco as part of the test program. Target said on Monday that it plans to bring the same-day delivery pilot to a few more NY stores this fall.

After the release of Spectre back in 2015, Craig famously (or infamously) had some pretty harsh things to say about the possibility of making another Bond movie. "We're done. All I want to do is move on".

Craig is the seventh actor to play Bond, following Sean Connery, Roger Moore, David Niven, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan.

Although there have been no director announcements yet; the untitled #007 James Bond film is coming is most tentatively releasing on the November 6, 2019, with a following early United Kingdom release and also at selected global markets.
