I'm dying. No, I'm actually DEAD. The promos for this weekend's SNL with host DANIEL BLOODY CRAIG (!) are so funny that I can barely contain myself.
Daniel Craig -- best known as being the darkest, broodiest James Bond ever -- is indulging his wackier side as host of this week's Saturday Night Live.
And based on these promos alongside Taran Killam, the actor is game for some serious silliness, spoofing his tough-guy image ("I don't like guns!") in one take, fending off Killam's amorous advances in another, and -- in the best sequence -- embarking on a montage that sees the two sharing cupcakes, wearing silly wigs and giant sunglasses, and playing Monopoly.
It's all such madcap hilarity, Killam dubs it "double-oh heaven" -- a Bond pun that sends Craig heading for the exit."
Let's watch together...over and over and over, okay?
Daniel's little shrug before he crams a cupcake into his mouth? Priceless.
And MUSE as the musical guests? I'm in anglophile Double-Oh HEAVEN. If only the musical guest were a very-pregnant Adele, though. I think my head would explode.
Aaaaaand...this is ME realizing I won't be home to see it--and our DVR isn't working. Hunter?
I hope you're happy I'm going to your first big gig in downtown Seattle at FUEL, Bruv. Awww, you know I wouldn't miss it for the world, Boo.
I think I have a new favorite Bond theme.
I love hearing Adele's accent with she sings the words Skyfall and Crumble . ("Sky-foe when it crumboes...") This is arguably one of the BEST Bond themes ever.
Timeless. English. FLAWLESS.
Hold on to your MF-in' hats, because here we GO. (Oh, and as an aside? I could not care less what Daniel Craig/James Bond are shilling. I don't care if Mr. Bond now drinks beer rather than a martini. Just as long as I see Daniel Craig as much as possible, I'm pleased. The End.)
Aaaand, I'm outta breath!!
It was only a rumor a couple of months ago, but the folks over at Showbiz411 confirmed that Adele will be singing the theme for the upcoming James Bond movie 'Skyfall.' The song will most likely be called "Skyfall" and was also probably written by the soon to-be-mom.
The 8-time Grammy winner will be joining the ranks of Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Shirley Bassey and many others who have created memorable Bond themes. I do hope it's better than "Another Way To Die" from 'Quantum of Solace.' Although I love both Alicia Keys and Jack White separately, that collaboration wasn't as good as it should have been. It was reported that Amy Winehouse was originally asked to sing the theme for QoS, but at the time she wasn't healthy, and Mark Ronson had a falling out with her over the situation. (Did you remember that TODAY Amy would have been 29 years old?)
The 23rd Bond film will premiere in the UK on October 26th, and we'll get to see it here in the States on November 9th.
So, what is your favorite Bond theme? How well do you think Adele's will do? I'm partial to "You Only Live Twice" performed by Nancy Sinatra.
[Editor's Note: DivaJulia's favorite is a newer Bond theme--"You Know My Name" by Chris Cornell
from Casino Royale, Daniel Craig's first appearance as Bond. James Bond.]

Hey! Who wants to
stare at Daniel Craig all bloody day read the synopsis for the latest James Bond film, SKYFALL?? I do!
In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M (JUDI DENCH) is tested as her past returns to haunt her. 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
When Bond’s latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory (RALPH FIENNES), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (NAOMIE HARRIS) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva (JAVIER BARDEM), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.
Eeeeeep! Can't. WAIT.
Annette? Are you with me?
p.s. TOM FORD CLOTHING!!!
