Daniel Craig Gets His Licks In

Playing James Bond isn’t a bad gig.

Sure, sometimes the top of your finger gets sliced off while filming, but then there are moments like this, when you nuzzle your naked 22-year-old costar Gemma Arterton.

The first batch of publicity stills for Quantum of Solace, the next installment in the 007 film saga, have been released. The plot involves legendary special agent Bond (played for the second time by 40-year-old Daniel Craig) preventing an environmentalist from taking over a country’s water supply.

The photo above is from the scene in which Bond foils the baddie’s plans by collecting Arterton’s back sweat to irrigate the parched countryside.

Or something like that.
