English actor Daniel Craig questioned strangers in the street when he was first offered the role of James Bond to see if the public would accept him as 007. The star was nervous Bond fans wouldn't approve of a blond superspy ahead of filming his 007 debut Casino Royale. He says, "I asked everybody, passers-by, the lot. "'Hello mate, can I talk to you about Bond?' I would ask, to which they would respond, 'Get lost, lunatic.'" Craig admits he even asked his MUNICH director Steven Spielberg's opinion, saying, "Would you employ me again if I did Bond?"
