London: Daniel Craig, the grumpy actor who last cracked a smile in the late-Eighties, has revealed that ‘James Bond’ director Sam Mendes is bringing back the classic 007 one-liners in ‘Skyfall’. The new ‘James Bond’ flick will supposedly be the 44-year-old actor’s toughest as he has to tell some jokes.

“Comedy in Bond films, for me, comes out of the situations people get into,” a leading daily has quoted him as saying.

“They’re exciting, hopefully heart-stopping, and the comedy comes out of one-liners and things. When Sam came in, it was key for all of us that there was a lightness of touch in the writing that had not been as evident in the past two films,” he added.
