Who will play Bond in any upcoming romp of the spy films as at this time it is unknown if Daniel Craig will reprise his role as he famously said "I would rather slash my wrists than play Bond again". However rumours still persist that we may not have seen the last of Craig in the role of the Vodka - Martini swilling spy.

Callum McDougal Executive Producer of the franchise has said he would love to see Craig in the role of 007. The rumour mill on who might replace Craig should he not resume the role of Bond has been going into over drive too in the last few years. Candidates in the frame could be Tom Hiddleston famous for playing Loki in Thor or current Superman actor Henry Cavill but we will see.

Craig is the second longest serving Bond actor after Roger Moore and he has played 007 4,147 days (Sky News) or almost 11 and a half years in total (Sky News). Where as Roger Moore has played Bond in 7 films and 5,118 days. Craig has to play Bond for another two and a half years to equal Moore's record. (Sky News).

Pierce Brosnan is the actor in third place for roles playing Bond and fourth is Sean Connery with his 1983 outing as Bond in 'Never Say Never Again' not being included in this list.

Whether Daniel Craig comes back to play Bond and equal Moore's record or some one else takes over the role the character of Ian Fleming's spoof spy will be around for a while yet.
