Ageing Bond Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig has vowed to play British spy James Bond until his "knees go"

Daniel Craig will play James Bond until his "knees go".

The actor - who reprises his role as the British spy in new movie 'Quantum of Solace' - insists he has no intention of giving up the part in the near future.

He said: "Bond is becoming a long-term job. We will see how this one turns out. If everything goes well, if people still want to see these movies, I will keep doing them for as long as it takes - or until my knees go, whichever happens quicker."

Daniel also revealed he grew accustomed to Bond's cocktail of choice while shooting the new film.

He added to Britain's Hello! magazine: "I like the martini I had on the last film - the Vesper. I can only do a few of them because they are a heavy drink - two parts vodka, two parts gin, then a measure of Kina Lillet. It's a big fat heavy drink of alcohol but it's actually quite good.

"I didn't have to drink them on set but we did. We ordered it all in and got shakers and played around with the measure. The trouble is, with three it's OK but four, you're thinking, 'Well, this evening could be over soon!' "
