  6. Daniel Craig

    Daniel Craig made his 007 debut in the 2006 film "Casino Royale." With his blond hair, petite stature (at 5-foot-11, he's the shortest actor to portray Bond) and Steve McQueen-type looks, he was a controversial choice for Bond, even inspiring anti-Craig Web sites. Before Bond, Craig was known for his edgy, independent choices in films like "Layer Cake," "Sylvia" and "Enduring Love." (MGM via Reuters) Back to slideshow navigation
