Mr. Bond would approve! Daniel Craig leaves fans shaken and stirred as he visits Bauer Media Radio in a sharp houndstooth suit while promoting Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
Daniel Craig left onlookers slightly shaken and considerably stirred on Wednesday morning while paying a visit to Bauer Media Radio Studios in London.
Even the elegantly dressed James Bond would’ve approved as the former 007 turned up in a classic houndstooth suit during his latest promotional appearance on behalf of new film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
Craig, 54, completed his look with a blue dress shirt, spotted tie and matching pocket square, while Argyll socks and formal brown leather shoes rounded off the ensemble.

The actor became a household name after replacing Piece Brosnan as James Bond in 2006 and starring in five consecutive films as the globetrotting secret agent before hanging up his tuxedo in 2021.
Glass Onion, his first significant move away from the Bond franchise, follows a party of sycophants and friends of Ed Norton’s brilliantly played billionaire Miles, who find themselves trapped on an island with a murderer on the loose.
As with the first Knives Out movie, director Rian Johnson has assembled an all-star cast including Janelle Monáe, Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., and Dave Bautista.
But Craig´s detective Benoit Blanc is the only returning character – with the British actor admitting he worked as hard as he could to get back into the headspace of the Southern sleuth – especially given his trademark accent.

‘I´m on it all the time, all the time,’ he told Associated Press. ‘I have to work really hard at it, but once it´s in, it´s in and then it is part of me.’
However he admitted to dropping the accent while at home with his loved ones, among them daughter Ella Loudon and actress wife Rachel Weisz.
‘My family´s not that nice, I´m not allowed to do that,’ he joked.

Craig also admitted dancing doesn´t come naturally to him – but he couldn’t resist a pitch from Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi to show off his moves in a new advert.
The pair collaborated on a recent Belvedere vodka ad, which features the former James Bond actor swinging his hips and shimmying down hotel corridors while showing off tattooed biceps and a devastating pout.
‘It was hard work because I don´t dance. So, the fact is, we had an amazing choreographer to JaQuel Knight who came in and I worked with him for a couple of days,’ he said.
‘I just went for it. You don´t get chances like that very often.’
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will receive a limited theatrical release before screening internationally on Netflix on December 23.
