LONDON, Feb. 22 (UPI) --
Ire about the latest James Bond
-- blond-haired Daniel Craig
-- has some fans pushing a boycott as payback to the new movie's producers.
Despite getting support from previous Bonds and series villains, Craig's future as 007 may be short.
The BBC reports a Web site has sprung up calling for a boycott to stop Sony and Eon Productions and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson from releasing Casino Royale.
It features the 37-year-old Craig, who replaced the popular Pierce Brosnan.
The Web site, www.craignotbond.com, asks "How can a short, blond actor with the rough face of a professional boxer and a penchant for playing killers, cranks, cads and gigolos pull off the role of a tall, dark, handsome and suave secret agent?"
Brosnan said there's only one way to find out and urges fans to give Craig a chance, calling him a "very fine actor."
Christopher Lee, a former villain in the Bond series and relative of creator Ian Fleming, also asked fans to calm down.
