Daniel Craig Mads Mikkelsen Variety Reunion
The brilliantly Casino Royale (2006) paired actors Daniel Craig (James Bond) and Mads Mikkelsen (Le Chiffre) recently reunited via video link for Variety's inaugural episode of their new Dream Teams series.

Daniel Craig and Mads Mikkelsen first met during the casting process of Casino Royale, Craig’s first film as Ian Fleming's 007. Mikkelsen recalls their initial conversation at costume fitting and what he thought would be an audition. It was a crazy day, one Craig compared to “herding cats.” The two were taking a smoke break together when director Martin Campbell came up and said he didn’t need to see Mikkelsen, he had the part. Reminiscing with Craig, Mikkelsen recalled, “You took a drag of your cigarette and said the famous words, ‘Who did you fuck, I did six casting for this?’ That was our first meeting.”

Hearing this, Craig laughed and noted: “I can’t believe how witty I was!”
