James Bond actor Daniel Craig as revealed he will play 007 in two further films.
This makes the British actor the third longest serving Bond in history behind Roger Moore (seven films) and Sean Connery (six).
The announcement came as Craig, 44, promotes the latest movie, Skyfall, which has previewed to favourable reviews.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said: 'I'm contracted for two more. I love playing it. I want to play it more, and I get a real kick out of it.'
He told ABC News how he had been 'bewildered' at being offered the part of Bond which, when it was announced, brought mixed reactions from fans and critics.
He said: “I was just a little bewildered that they’d even come to me,” he said. “Of course I was concerned about being typecast … but you know when you weigh it up, it’s not bad to be typecast as James Bond.”
Skyfall, the 23rd film in the Bond franchise, opens in the UK on October 26 and worldwide on November 9. Early reviews have been extremely positive, with the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye describing it as 'a class act' and a 'landmark' Bond film.
The Telegraph's Robbie Collin predicting 'Skyfall will be a stratospheric hit'.
Meanwhile, the movie review website Rotten Tomatoes gave Skyfall an impressive 96 per cent.
