Daniel Craig has apparently had a change of heart. After once saying he'd rather die than reprise his role as 007, the actor told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday he will play James Bond on screen one final time. In fact, "I can't wait," Craig announced on the Late Show, per the Hollywood Reporter. He added he always wanted to return to the role but simply "needed a break." His earlier comments suggesting his Bond days were over came just two days after he wrapped 2015's Spectre. His fifth 007 film, currently untitled, is due out in 2019. Craig told Colbert he plans to "go out on a high note." (More James Bond stories.)
