Daniel Craig backs a coloured 007 after Obama win

London (ANI): Following the historic victory of Barack Obama in the US Presidential elections, Daniel Craig says the world should be prepared to see a 'coloured 007'. The 40-year-old, who was himself the target of much criticism for being the first 'blonde Bond', humoured the idea at a press conference before the Italian premier of his latest Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

"After Barack Obama's victory I think we might have reached the moment for a coloured 007," the Telegraph quoted him as telling the Agi news agency. "I think the role could easily be played by a black actor, because the character created by Ian Fleming in the Fifties has undergone a great deal of evolution and continues to be updated."

The Brit, who admired Obama for his ideals and was happy to see him win, added: "I've always been a fan of Obama. The political ideas that have emerged from his speeches seem to me to be genuine."
