While “Mourir can wait” has just been released in French theaters, Daniel Craig inaugurated his star on the “Walk of Fame” of “Hollywood Boulevard. He thus joins Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. But not Sean Connery.
A new James Bond in the firmament, among the stars visible on the famous “Walk of Fame” Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles. This Wednesday, October 6, day of release of Mourir can wait in France, Daniel Craig inaugurated his commemorative plaque. In the presence of Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, producers of his missions in the tuxedo of 007, and Rami Malek, his opponent in the latest one.
As he just surrendered his license to kill, Daniel Craig becomes the third James Bond performer to appear on the “Walk of Fame”. He joined in fact Pierce Brosnan (who had inaugurated his star in 1997, the year of release of Tomorrow Never Dies) and Roger Moore. But not Sean Connery. And this can be explained in particular by the fact that it is necessary to pay an amount which, in 2020, amounted to 50,000 dollars, to appear there. What neither the Scottish actor, nor the producers of the saga, undoubtedly wanted to do.
With five films on the clock, Daniel Craig will not remain the most prolific James Bond, a title that Roger Moore still holds with seven opuses. But his mandate will have been the longest, since fifteen years passed between the outputs of Casino Royale in 2006, and Dying can wait, postponed by more than a year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
And he is preparing to say goodbye to the American public this Friday, October 8, the release day of Die Can Wait in theaters in the United States.
