The handsome English action star sat down with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Tuesday where -- after coyly dodging questions about his reported return to the iconic role -- he confirmed the news in no uncertain terms.
Colbert began by praising Craig, who is the sixth actor to portray the hard-drinking British spy, by calling him "the greatest Bond," and saying, "I would see another Daniel Craig James Bond movie in a minute."
"I've been quite cagey about it. I've been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I've been rather coy," Craig said. "But I kind of felt like, if I was gonna sort of speak the truth… I should speak the truth to you."
"Daniel Craig, we could use some good news here," Colbert replied. "Will you return as James Bond?"
Craig has played the tuxedo-clad secret agent in four consecutive films -- Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and, most recently, Spectre -- and he told Colbert that this fifth outing will most likely be his last.
"I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note," he said. "I can’t wait."
