New Bond urges gay scene

Kudos to new James Bond Daniel Craig for suggesting the next logical step in the Bond universe:


Daniel Craig is urging movie bosses to revolutionize the James Bond franchise by including a gay scene involving the superspy in the follow-up to Casino Royale.
The heart-throb actor has also reportedly told studio chiefs he is prepared to film a full frontal nude scene to please both his male and female admirers.
He says, "Why not? I think in this day and age, fans would have accepted it."
"I mean, look at (British TV series) Doctor Who - that has had gay scenes in it and no one blinks an eye."
A gay bond scene is excellent idea because A) It would be totally hot, and B) The mere thought of Bond-on-man love is freaking out the wingnuts at the Free Republic.
