 The bosses wanted Craig to put on about 15 to 20 pounds prior to filming, at age 43 this was no easy task.

Daniel Craig’s mission as James Bond.

Building muscles for the third sequel is the hardest challenge for Craig. This is due to the fact that he shrinks a few pounds and muscles for his last movie called “Cowboys and Aliens”. Thus, he needs to begin from scratch in order to muscle up again. Also, at 43, the actor feels that he is a bit old to handle the tremendous physical demands presented by the James Bond role.

Daniel Craig badly needs to achieve serious muscles for the movie Skyfall. In actuality, the bosses want Craig to put on about 15 to 20 pounds prior to filming. The great thing is Craig has been muscled up before. Hence, it will be a lot faster for him to achieve the muscle mass that is expected from him. All he needs to do is to begin lifting weights and increase his protein as well as calorie intake.
