How much is Daniel Craig’s net worth after these Bond movies?
Daniel Craig . . . yeah, that guy who’s about to become one of Hollywood’s top paid men thanks to his Knives Out sequels contract. A lot went right for Daniel Craig early in terms of his acting career, setting himself up for a future net worth that most of us, likely all of us, could only dream of. Care to learn more about Daniel Craig’s path to financial liberation? His current net worth suggests that you might throw up reading.
Let’s dive into the man’s IMDb and see just how he blew up in Hollywood.
Daniel Craig hall of fame career
While it’s likely that Daniel Craig will always be known for his work in the James Bond franchise, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the other Daniel Craig projects in which he stole the show, proving that his acting chops are on par with some of the best in Hollywood today.
The list includes the science fiction horror film The Invasion (2007) The Golden Compass (2007) opposite Nicole Kidman, Flashbacks of a Fool (2008) with Emilia Fox, the war film Defiance (2008), Cowboys and Aliens (2011) alongside Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde, Kings (2017) opposite Halle Berry, and Knives Out (2019), a film which earned Craig a lucrative multi-sequel deal for earlier this year with millions.
Despite his success as an A-list movie star, Craig has remained involved with theatre productions as well. He co-starred with Hugh Jackman in a production of the drama A Steady Rain on Broadway from September to December 2009. He even costarred with his second wife, Rachel Weisz, in the Broadway play Betrayal from October 2013 to January 2014. However, we all know where Craig’s bread & butter is at, right?
Daniel Craig as James Bond
When Daniel Craig was cast as James Bond, the internet exploded with bitterness. Despite being a white British guy, people were picking the actor apart.
His blonde hair became a problem, as did his height for many. Luckily, the studio ignored these petty comments, and now Craig has starred in five Bond films: Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), Spectre (2015), and No Time to Die (2021).
Daniel Craig’s take on Bond came during a time when studios were interested in taking a more serious approach with their beloved properties, much in part due to Christopher Nolan’s 2005 hit Batman Begins. This approach is starting to wear out its welcome, but when Craig took the role, it was a much-needed fresh take on the character. After all, Casino Royale and Skyfall are considered two of the better Bond films ever.
Now, because we’re only weeks away from his final outing as the suit-wearing, gun-slinging, Aston Martin riding Bond in No Time To Die, a film that we feel like we’ve been seeing advertisements more for the last fifteen years, it is bittersweet to think that Daniel Craig will no longer be playing our favorite English spy, as he has been as good and as consistent as any previous Bond actor before him.
Daniel Craig net worth
As reported by Celebrity Net Worth, Daniel Craig currently has an impressive net worth of $160 million, having earned a base fee of $25 million for his fifth outing as James Bond in the upcoming No Time To Die . . . a remarkable $22 million more than what he made in his first time as the British spy in 2006’s Casino Royale.
As we had mentioned earlier, Daniel Craig signed a lucrative deal worth $100 million for the upcoming sequels to the Rian Johnson 2019 “whodunit” hit Knives Out, as first reported by Variety.
