Standing by his claim...
Roger Moore has once again called Daniel Craig the best James Bond ever. IGN reports that Moore spoke at "An Evening With Roger Moore" at the Rose Theater in Kingston-Upon-Thames last night and said Skyfall was going to be a huge hit.
He said: "I was invited on Saturday morning to a private screening of Skyfall. Now, I have always said that the best Bond was obviously Sean [Connery], but I'm happy to say when Skyfall is released on October 26, it is going to be the biggest [Bond film] there has ever been in the cinema, and he [Daniel Craig] will go down as the best Bond in history. It is fantastic."
He spoke on his 85th birthday to promote his new book Bond on Bond. He added: "Before I saw Skyfall, I felt very angry about the way that the English press treated Daniel Craig. Before he'd started [Casino Royale] they predicted doom and gloom and they criticized him. I used to write letters of support to him, and I was so pleased when I saw Casino Royale because he was truly excellent in it. He's a wonderful actor, if you've seen Munich or In Cold Blood, you know he's a terrific actor."
Moore's book is out now. Skyfall will be released on November 9.
