Happy Birthday, Daniel Craig!

Today, we're celebrating the 44th birthday of actor Daniel Craig. He got his acting start in the early 1990s with a series of television roles as well as a credited role in 1992's The Power of One. Craig worked consistently throughout the 1990s, including an appearance in the Academy Award-winning 1998 film, Elizabeth. It wasn't until the 2000s that he started to gain real prominence, however. He starred opposite Angelina Jolie in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider then opposite Tom Hanks and Paul Newman in 2002's Road to Perdition. Craig's biggest hit came in 2006's Casino Royale, where he became the sixth man to portray James Bond on-screen. He would go on to reprise the character in 2008's Quantum of Solace and is scheduled to play Bond once again in 2012's Skyfall. Most recently, audiences have seen him in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And so, to celebrate his birthday, I've created a list of my favorite Daniel Craig performances. I hope you enjoy the list and the videos. Once again, happy birthday, Daniel!
