Daniel Craig puts on a dapper display as he arrives at JFK airport

James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli says an actor ‘of any colour’ could play 007 but NOT a woman… as hunt continues for Daniel Craig’s replacement

He’s gearing up to play James Bond for the final time in No Time To Die.

And Daniel Craig put on a dapper display as he was spotted at JFK airport after landing in New York City on Wednesday.

The actor, 51, kept his look low-key as he donned a dark blue coat over a comfy beige sweater that was paired with a light blue shirt.

Daniel completed his look with a pair of loose-fitting denim jeans, and the James Bond star offset his look by wearing brown suede boots.

He shielded his blonde locks with a grey baker boy cap, and wore a pair of black-rimmed glasses for the outing.

Ready to get on with his day, Daniel wore one bag across his torso and also carried another backpack on one shoulder.

Daniel’s outing comes as Barbara Broccoli claimed she wouldn’t consider making Bond a woman in future iterations of the character, as she’d rather create a female character who is strong in her own right.

Speaking to Variety on Wednesday, the long-standing producer of James Bond films explained: ‘He can be of any colour, but he is male. I believe we should be creating new characters for women — strong female characters.

‘I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.’

Although Daniel now says he is ‘really happy’ he signed up for a fifth film, his comments starkly contrast with his response about signing up again when he was asked in 2015, shortly before the release of Spectre.   

‘I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,’ he said during an interview with London’s Time Out magazine. ‘We’re done. All I want to do is move on.’

The Layer Cake star added that if he were to sign up again, it would only be for the money.  

But Daniel did agree to star in the much-anticipated No Time To Die, for a reported fee of £18.4 million ($25million).

As well as Casino Royale, Skyfall in 2012 and Spectre, Daniel also appeared in Quantum of Solace in 2008.
