LSE: Beer for Bond?
Monday, 25th September 2006

LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - James Bond may be ditching his
vodka martini in favour of lager.

Daniel Craig - who debuts as the 007 agent in new Bond film
'Casino Royale' - may never utter the immortal lines "Vodka
martini - shaken, not stirred" as film bosses have signed a
deal with lager giants Heineken, according to Britain's Daily
Star newspaper.

The 37-year-old actor has already confessed he doesn't even
like 007's tipple, and mocked the famous line.

He said: "I don't think anybody makes a Martini stirred any

Craig has proved unpopular with Bond fans, many of whom
fear he will not live up to the suave, all-action character.
Meanwhile, a new survey by sci-fi magazine SFX revealed that
Sir Sean Connery is still the most popular 007.

The 75-year-old actor beat Pierce Brosnan, 53, into second
place while 78-year-old Roger Moore was voted third.

SFX editor Dave Bradley said: "Connery is still the ultimate
007. New Bond Daniel Craig has very tough acts to follow."

The 3,000 voters also named 1964 film 'Goldfinger' - starring
Sir Sean - as their favourite Bond movie.

'Casino Royale' will be released in November.
