While he may have sounded a bit exasperated in a couple of recent interviews, Spectre star Daniel Craig appears to have cooled off a bit when it comes to doing publicity for the latest James Bond film. Case in point: he appeared in good spirits last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he was game enough to participate in a rather funny sketch with host Stephen Colbert to tie into Spectre.
The aforementioned pre-taped video is presented as a “deleted scene” from Spectre which attempts to fill in a rather glaring plot hole that appears throughout the James Bond franchise. The secret agent trashes fancy car after fancy car, only to keep being given other people’s vehicles to drive. In this “deleted scene”, Bond must find his own rental car after trashing one of the MI-6-provided vehicles, but he runs across an employee (played by Colbert) who has no time for his dramatic “people are trying to kill me” routine.
It’s a funny segment, and it’s nice to see Craig poking fun at some of the more ridiculous aspects of the James Bond franchise. Check out the video below, via CBS. Spectre opens everywhere on Friday, November 6th.
