The Evolution of James Bond Continues

Michele Norris talks with NPR film critic Bob Mondello about the evolution of James Bond. The 21st official Bond film, Casino Royale comes out today, with a new Bond.

The 2006 model of 007, played by Daniel Craig, doesn't even mind if his martini is shaken or stirred. Mondello says Craig's Bond is a return to the style and humanity of the early days of Sean Connery.
