Daniel Craig tells Ellen DeGeneres he doesn’t know if he’ll make another Bond movie

Daniel Craig made his Ellen debut on Tuesday, and he once again answered the question everyone’s been asking him for the past year: Is he going to make another James Bond movie?

“It’s a funny thing,” Craig told Ellen DeGeneres. “I got asked the question two days after I finished shooting whether I’d like to do another one, and my answer was fairly short and sweet.”

Craig has repeatedly said that he has no idea whether he’ll return to the franchise, telling EW in October, “People want an answer and I don’t have one.” He also faced criticism last month when he told a Time Out reporter that he’d “rather break this glass and slash [his] wrists” than do another Bond movie. He told DeGeneres that the recently released Spectre, his fourth appearance as 007, took up two years of his life, including a grueling eight-month shoot.

“I don’t even want to think about it, just at the moment, [but] if I did stop doing them, I’d miss them terribly,” he said.

DeGeneres and Craig also discussed the possibility of a woman stepping in as 007, with both agreeing that Oprah Winfrey would (obviously) be the ideal choice. Craig also nominated DeGeneres, gifting her with her very own Q-approved watch and telling her, “I think you wear a suit incredibly well.”
