It's Craig. Daniel Craig.

The 37-year-old star of of the gangster film Layer Cake has been chosen as the next James Bond, British newspapers are reporting this week.

Craig will make his debut as 007 in Casino Royale, according to both the Sun and the Daily Mail.

"As far as I know, it's confirmed," said a spokesman for Columbia Pictures, which will be releasing the new film next year.

Craig, who also had roles in Lara Craft: Tomb Raider and Road to Perdition, follows David Niven, Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan in the role of the suave spy.

The Sun reported that Craig's main competition had been British star Clive Owen, who was nominated for an Oscar for Closer in 2004. However, the Mail said the 18-month search to replace Brosnan came down to Craig and newcomer Henry Cavill.

"The pair were auditioned again and tried on tuxedos to see how they would look in the quintessential Bond clothing," it said.

The newspapers reported Craig will sign a three-film deal that will make him the first blond Bond. Craig was recently in the news when he was linked with actress Sienna Miller, the ex-girlfriend of Jude Law.

Awh... I know it's old news that Brosnan is quitting, but I really really liked him as 007.

IMO he was right up there with Sean Connery and Roger Moore. (Blasphemy, I know)
