Daniel Craig thrilled onlookers by ordering a series of Martinis at a restaurant this week.

The British hunk is well known for playing suave spy James Bond, who famously drinks Martinis ‘shaken not stirred’. It seems Daniel can’t separate himself from his 007 role, even when cameras aren’t rolling. He visited the appropriately named Bond St. restaurant in New York City on Monday night, much to the delight of fellow diners.

Daniel arrived looking buff in a tight black T-shirt and was accompanied by two women and a man. The group were eager to keep a low-profile and apparently spent the evening speaking in “hushed tones”. They sat in a quiet corner of the eatery, where they dined and enjoyed a host of cocktails.

“It looked like they were celebrating,” a source told New York Post.

Last month, it was revealed that Sam Mendes had signed on to direct the next Bond movie, following the success of his collaboration with Daniel on Skyfall.

The 24th instalment in the iconic spy franchise will apparently be based on the 2008 novel Devil May Care – with Penélope Cruz rumoured to have a significant role.

Daniel is contracted to appear in at least two more Bond movies.

The 45-year-old hunk is spending time in New York at the moment as he rehearsing for a new Broadway theatre production. He will star alongside his wife Rachel Weisz in Betrayal, which begins previews on October 1.

Fan of The Professionals will be treated to a Capri-make of the classic TV cop series in the form of a big budget movie.

The show’s creator Brian Clemens, 81, is currently seeking actors to star as no-nonsense action men Bodie and Doyle, played by a Martin Shaw and Lewis Collins in the original.

Clemens, who received an OBE in 2010, will be executive producer on the film, which is due to start shooting before the end of the year.

He said: “It’s going to be a big action movie. The script is done and now we are looking at casting.

“There are some big names being talked about, we just have to make sure they are available.

“Getting the right people is very important, because the show means a lot to the fans.”

He said the remake would be set now as it was too hard to get period details right.

The famous Capri, in which they chased villains, will be replaced by a modern car.

Clemens explained: “It’s a huge task to shoot a period film – you’ll always get someone complaining that the wrong sort of phonebox was used in one scene or something. The show can easily fit into the modern day.”

The Professionals ran for four series over six years on ITV from 1977 with audiences of over 10 million.

Names mentioned to play Bodie include Bond’s Daniel Craig, 45, Transporter star Jason Statham, 45, Inception hunk Tom Hardy, 35, and even Tom Cruise, 51. 

Former Doctor Who David Tennant, 42, The Wire’s Dominic West, 43, Bond’s new Q Ben Whishaw, 32, and Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch, 37, are on the wish list to play Doyle.

Clemens assured fans they will like the new version, adding: “To any fans worried about the remake, can I just point out I had nothing to do with the Avengers movie in the 1990s. The less said about that, the better.”

Mirror TV critic Ian Hyland’s verdict:

My first reaction when I heard about this proposed remake? Aw man, I used to love The Professionals when I was a kid.

My second reaction? Why would anyone want to stamp all over those memories by attempting the impossible feat of recapturing the brilliance of Bodie and Doyle?

There is one way I could be persuaded to watch this movie though.

If the producers pulled off a real coup when casting Gordon Jackson’s legendary CI5 boss George Cowley. A tough-talking, dram-loving

Glaswegian who rules with a rod of iron and doesn’t suffer fools in suits gladly.

Well, it’s not like Sir Alex Ferguson is busy these days.

The 24th James Bond movie is rumoured to be based on 2008 novel Devil May Care.

According to The Sun, studio bosses have chosen Sebastian Faulks‘s Bond novel as the basis for Daniel Craig’s next outing.

The book, released to mark the 100th anniversary of creator Ian Fleming’s birth, is set in 1967 as a sequel to The Man with the Golden Gun.

Devil May Care follows Bond battling a chemist named Dr Julius Gorner, who aims to control Britain.

Sam Mendes recently confirmed that he will return to direct Bond 24, following the huge success of last year’s Skyfall.

The project will be released in the UK on October 23, 2015 and in the US on November 6, 2015. Screenwriter John Logan will also return.

“I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honour all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24,” Mendes said.

July 07, 2013

THEIR injured captain has been dubbed 007 – but the real James Bond ­congratulated the ­victorious British and Irish Lions side as they beat Australia in Sydney.

Daniel Craig flew in from Los ­Angeles to join more than 30,000 Lions fans for the final clash in the three-match series at the city’s ANZ stadium.

The Bond actor joined the stars on the pitch after their victory.

And later, he even treated the team to some 007-style luxury.

“Daniel Craig & his champagne arrive into @lionsofficial dressing room,” said a tweet from the official Lions account, as they posted photos of the celebrations.

The actor joined the ­partying players in their dressing room and was ­pictured with many of the side, clutching a ­bottle of beer and sporting a Lions scarf.

The side – captained by Alun-Wyn Jones in the absence of the injured Sam Warburton – trounced the ­Wallabies 41-16 to clinch their first Test series win in 16 years.

Leigh Halfpenny was named man of the match after landing seven from eight kicks to rack up 21 points.

Bond star Daniel, 45, is a huge rugby fan, who once played for ­Hoylake RFC Rugby Union Club in north-west ­England.

Craig and his James Bond Skyfall co-star, Javier Bardem, even bonded over their love of the sport.

Craig said: “He played rugby for Spain, so he’s serious.”

The injured Lions captain Sam ­Warburton was nicknamed 007 when he revealed a muscled torso after emerging topless from the water in both Bondi beach and in Perth.

Prime Minister David Cameron was among those to offer ­congratulations to the side, tweeting: “A superb result for the British and Irish Lions.

“Hoping Andy Murray can make it the perfect sporting weekend.”
