Anti-Daniel Craig Bond Fans Call for ‘Casino Royale’ Boycott

Disgruntled James Bond fans have set up a website campaigning for new 007 Daniel Craig to be stripped of the iconic movie role.

Craig was announced as the successor to Pierce Brosnan's superspy last October and shooting began on new film Casino Royale last month.

But die-hard fans of the franchise still hope to oust the British actor and replace him with a more worthy Bond--by urging cinemagoers to boycott the film when it is released.

A statement on craignotbond.com reads, "Eon Productions angered fans around the world when they fired Pierce Brosnan at the height of his popularity as Bond.

"To add insult to injury, Eon cast a short, blond, odd-looking Daniel Craig in the role of Bond.

"Craig, described by The New York Times as having a 'pale, flattened face and large, fleshy ears' is a terrible choice for Bond. If Eon Productions and Sony Pictures will not accept they've made a big mistake, then Bond fans promise to boycott Casino Royale!"
