If you thought an appearance from Daniel Craig in tonight’s Comic Relief coverage was enough to leave you shaken (not stirred), brace yourself – the Bond actor is set to be joined by a whole host of cast and crew from the iconic spy films.
Craig, who has played secret agent 007 since 2005, is poised to appear in a skit during tonight’s charity fundraiser on BBC1 – and he’s going to be joined by co-stars Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris, as well as Bond legend Sir Roger Moore, plus director Sam Mendes and producer Michael G. Wilson.
The mockumentary-style sketch, which was been penned by David Walliams and the Dawson Brothers, will see Daniel and his colleagues “reveal the biggest Bond secret yet – a bombshell which is set to shock the world.”
“Expect surprises, laughs, and some very special appearances, as viewers are finally told the truth about James Bond,” tease the BBC.
“When I first saw the script, I was returning home from the set, and it really made me laugh out loud. I was thrilled to be asked to be involved,” said Ben Whishaw, who plays Q, while Moore added: “I think viewers will most enjoy seeing that old Bonds never die.”
Watch the sketch during Comic Relief – Face the Funny, broadcasting live from the London Palladium from 7:00pm on BBC1
