(LOS ANGELES) -- Two years after declaring that he'd "rather break this glass and slash my wrists" than do another James Bond film, Daniel Craig confirmed to Late Show host Stephen Colbert that he would, indeed, play the secret agent one more time. So why the the change-of-heart? A source tells the New York Daily News that Craig was convinced to re-up by the promise that he'd "make history." The film's 2019 release date would reportedly mark the 49-year-old actor's 13th year playing 007, according to the newspaper -- a year longer than the current record-holder, Roger Moore, who died in May.
