Daniel Craig has given U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama a big boost two weeks ahead of America's big election by insisting the Democrat would make a better James Bond than his opponent John McCain.
The British action man admits he's fascinated by the lead up to the election on 4 November (08) - and he likes both candidates. But, if he had to choose, he's adamant Obama would be a better Bond than ageing prisoner of war MCCain.
He tells U.S. magazine Parade, "Obama would be the better Bond, because, if he's true to his word, he'd be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them."
But MCCain wouldn't be left out of Craig's political Bond film - the actor insists the Republican would make a good M.
He explains, "MCCain, because of his long service and experience, would probably be a better M. There is, come to think of it, a kind of Judi Dench quality to MCCain."
