Craig

Known best for his five turns as James Bond — the character he first took on in 2006 and wrapped up in October 2021 when “No Time To Die” finally hit theaters — Craig will continue to be one of Hollywood’s most compensated stars for an entirely different franchise: the mystery-comedy “Knives Out.” Lionsgate released the original in 2019, earning him a Golden Globe nomination, but Netflix has reportedly signed him for upwards of $100M for the film’s next two sequels, the first scheduled for 2022, proving he’s just as valuable a comedic actor as a suave spy. He’s also taken on producing roles (his last two outings as Bond) and will produce and star in Showtime limited series “Purity,” on hold since 2018. That said, he’s not abandoning the assassin niche yet as he’s starring in “The Creed of Violence” with Leonardo DiCaprio.
