The actor, who was a guest on Tuesday night’s “Late Show,” confirmed to have Stephen Colbert that he will come back to the part as the super spy in the up and coming, but then untitled, 25th Bond film.
“Now, you’ve been reported to play the role of James Bond again,” Colbert said to Craig, who said he has been pretty coy about if he would return. “We could use some good news here. Daniel Craig, will you return as James Bond?”
“Yes,” Craig responded with a smile.
This drove the group of onlookers to cheer and Colbert to get up from his seat and shake Craig’s hand.
The on-screen character at that point clarified that he knew for two or three months that he would return, however had been talking about it and attempting to make sense of things.
