    You won't believe what the idiots, a.k.a. the media, have come up with this time...

    MEDIA RUMOUR

    Daniel Craig’s credentials as the new James Bond have taken another knock — after it was discovered he is a duffer at poker - reports The Sun.

    Accoring to the paper, an expert had to be flown abroad to teach him the game — even though the gambling scene is crucial to latest movie Casino Royale.

    British card player John Duthie, who has made £1.5million from poker, was jetted to a Berlin hotel to coach Craig.

    An "insider" said: “Daniel could not play cards — it was so funny. It is a critical part of the film, where Bond shows how cool a customer he is.

    But it was frustratingly ridiculous how long it took to teach the cast how to play or behave at a poker table.

    “Everyone at the hotel has been laughing about a Bond who can’t play cards.”

    In the casino scene, 007 has to wipe out the arch villain’s fortune by bluffing him at the poker table. The movie is out in November.

    Thanks to 'Grunther' for the alert.

    Well they're actors. They're not all professionals in everything they need to do. Does Pierce Brosnan really know how to drive like Bond? Did Matt Damon know Kali before he did The Bourne Identity? No. They are taught that. Why should poker be any different?

    Connery didn't know how to play golf before doing GOLDFINGER.

    Oh this is just pathetic. I'm pretty sure when casting, card playing skills aren't right up there at the top of the agenda.

    Wow, with all the crap he's been taking lately, I'm beginning wonder why anyone would even want this role.

    Heh.

    I think he needed to kill at least 5 people before he took the part.

    They could all be British tabloid publishers.

    If anybody should feel ashamed its the idiots who actually report these meaningless "reports". Craig didn't know how to play poker?? Who gives a crap? Do people honestly care? Its clear the media don't even know what an actor means anymore. I blame reality tv and of course the fundimental stupidity of man in general.

    All this bad buzz makes me think that even if it is a genuinely good film, the british media will highlight the flaws and this flick is doomed

    It means 'bad at something'.

    As in ''The Sun is a duffer at printing worthwhile stories''

    Anything printed in The Sun is not worth reading, let alone believing.

    Nah the British media are hypocrites! Always do it, they slag off the national football team and the top players (I see they've moved on too Rooney now) but as soon as a big event comes out you get the posters with "Support the lads" written all over it!

    Come November The Sun will write about how Craig was simply awesome, wether he was or not!
