Eastender To Play Activision’s Bond


It has possibly been revealed that Eastenders actor Adam Croasdell has been cast as James Bond in Activision and Bizarre Creations’ game due next year. Croasdell plays Walford’s local quack, Dr Al Jenkins and revealed in an interview with the BBC that he had recently finished playing Bond for a new game.

“Oddly enough I have just played James Bond in the new James Bond video game – how weird is that?” Croasdell asked. “I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m always into varying up what comes my way, trying new things.” Details of Bizarre’s Bond game have been few and far between with many believing it will be a racing game rather than a shooter. Croasdell wasn’t letting any such details slip though.

What he would reveal is that he believes motion capture of actors is the future of the industry. “I think video games and the making of that type of technology, being in a funny one-piece suit and being shot with 60 cameras, I think that’s sort of the future,” he revealed. “Andy Serkis did it in The Hobbit, and there’s a new film Avatar which is James Cameron – it’s all that sort of motion capture. I think it’s the future, so I was fascinated to see how that would happen.”

It comes as little surprise that Activision decided to cast its own Bond given that it wants to make the license an annual title alongside Call Of Duty and Tony Hawk’s. We can’t imagine Daniel Craig making himself available for hours, days and weeks at a time each year. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a return to form for our digital Bond whether we get a new FPS, third-person shooter or racer.
