Okay, so now that we know Daniel Craig is coming back for one last turn as James Bond, who should his final Bond girl be?

In other movie news involving Craig, he plays Joe Bang in "Logan Lucky", a southern heist comedy, which hits theaters August 18.

I can't picture any other Bond actor doing that - can you?

Bond 25 will be his fifth turn as Bond, and the actor has confirmed it will be his last. "I think you're the greatest Bond", Colbert said to racuous applause.

Eon Productions, the company that runs the movie franchise, said on its website that the 25th Bond movie would be released in USA cinemas on November 8, 2019, with a traditional early release in Britain and the rest of the world. Brosnan has taken numerous Bond-esque parts after his heyday as 007, and even tried (and failed) to launch a new spy franchise in 2014 with The November Man. Although Bond walked off with Lea Seydoux at the end of 2015's Spectre, it doesn't seem very likely that she will return. "As long as Eon Productions and MGM gave him time to recover from Spectre and/or do other projects in between Bond movies, it was a near-inevitability that he would return for one last ride", Mendelson writes. "We're done. All I want to do is move on". If I was somehow granted the ability, I admittedly don't think I'd be curious enough to scrap his Bond films from existence to see what kind of actor he would have become instead, but Craig's go-for-broke exuberance in Logan Lucky definitely has me looking forward to spending more time with this version of the actor in the years to come.

Colbert then asked: "We could use some good news here".
