Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!
Appears pictures from filming have already surfaced on the web:
To put these pictures into context...well I really can't, lol. One things for certain though, rumors from earlier this month about Craig sporting a beard appear to be true. Ok so it's not quite a beard but it is some stubble.
And just to throw my two cents in on why Bond would be bearded...I believe he was in a deep cover assignment and got pulled off of it at the start of the film. I highly doubt Craig will be sporting a beard all throughout filming.
The only time I can think (off the top of my head) of 007 being bearded in a movie was near the start of DAD when he was released from that Korean prison. But Brosnan also sported facial fuzz at the press conference for Goldeneye yet turned up in the whole of that movie clean-shaven. So I wouldn't read too much into Craig's hairy look just yet.
