‘Casino Royale’ was released back in 2006, so we look back the crazy anti-Craig fan reaction that greeted the announcement he would take over from Pierce Brosnan as 007. The trolling began the moment Daniel Craig arrived by speedboat at the London press conference unveiling him as the new James Bond – wearing a life jacket.
