The new James Bond Skyfall theme song, performed by soulful songstress Adele, is already popular with the singer’s fans and Bond diehards. But it seems she also has a fan in the star of the movie as well. Daniel Craig gunned for Adele for the new movie–did he want her as his next Bond girl?

Craig said that when Adele’s name came up he “just jumped at it,” and said: “We have to get her. I just thought that she has the voice and she’s got the tone that we wanted.” So, he only wanted her for her voice, and of course they picked a more obvious, predictable (albeit a little boring?) beauty for the role, French actress BÃ©rÃ©nice Marlohe (complete with sexy accent, of course). But Adele’s voice will at least carry Marlohe and Craig through the movie’s hot shower scene
The Skyfall theme song jumped to number one on iTunes almost as soon as it was available last Friday, and the movie comes out in early November. Adele must be extremely flattered to know that Mr. Bond himself wanted her to sing the theme song! It’s too bad she can’t have a cameo in the movie, though.
