Daniel Craig announced on Tuesday that he will return to the James Bond franchise for one last outing in 2019, following months of speculation about who is best equipped to succeed him.
And it’s fair to say some people were rather excited about it.
Daniel Craig finally confirmed he's coming back to play James Bond one last time. I think he's the best Bond we've ever had, I can't wait. pic.twitter.com/nYYlgaISfn

I'm not joking when I say that hearing Daniel Craig is coming back as Bond is the best news I've heard this year.— Edan Clay 🇺🇸 😷 (@EdanClay) August 16, 2017
As bad as today had been, Daniel Craig just stated that he is returning as James Bond, so there is still some good in the world.— Paul Dellevigne (@pauliethesuit) August 16, 2017

However, a lot of people saw the announcement as the perfect occasion to remember the best extra of all time from Quantum of Solace, whose enthusiastic fake sweeping didn’t quite have the desired effect.
Daniel Craig is back for 2 more bond films? Great, but what about the greatest extra of all time- the sweeping man in Quantum of solace ? pic.twitter.com/kBGDcozkWl

As Daniel Craig has confirmed he'll be playing Bond again, feels apt to look at the best acting by an extra in a background scene again. pic.twitter.com/qbQzGW767i— Amanda (@Pandamoanimum) August 16, 2017
