As Bond Week continues, Blond Bond Daniel Craig is prepping for his first hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.

Joshing around with Taran Killam in the promo for SNL on Saturday, Craig let his silly side show -- but only after a "montage!"  The clips are charming, and offer a chance for the actor let off steam. In the current Vanity Fair, Craig discusses the limitations of being a celebrity -- especially when associated with a brand like Bond:

"You can’t live a normal life anymore. Because it will become public knowledge that you’ve whatever—gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach or something. Things that normal people do occasionally. And in a way that’s kind of—I’ve got to be high-class."

Judging from the sangfroid and humor Craig displayed during Danny Boyle's Olympic Games opening gambit with Queen Elizabeth, he'll handle this SNL challenge with aplomb.
