Daniel Craig and Queen Elizabeth 'Skyfall' into the Olympics

Yahoo Contributor Network

Daniel Craig is unabashedly bad ass. With his dashing good looks and sexy swagger, most fans may have challenges trying to distinguish the man from his most famous character; Bond, James Bond. Craig so aptly embodies the role that he was clearly born to play.

This weekend the actor made history in a skit with the Queen. One doesn't expect to use the word "skit" and the Queen of England in the same sentence. In a bout of patriotism for his beloved England, Daniel took part in the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. London is the host to the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

The filmed bit included Craig walking with Her Majesty, presumably as a part of her security detail. They are accompanied by guard dogs as all want to insure the Queen's safe arrival to the XXX Olympiad. After they make their way through a palatial setting, we see Daniel and none other than QE2 herself jump out of a helicopter. Of course this was all performed with stunt actors. Nonetheless, it was a fun and uncharacteristically light-hearted moment for the matriarch. The Queen then appeared in her royal viewing box.

It's a hectic time for Mr. Craig. So, what is he up to when not protecting the regal? He's busy promoting his latest 007 flick, "Skyfall." A new high-powered trailer of the superspy premiered during the Olympic games. Chocolate beauty Naomie Harris will play the Bond girl and love interest in this film. She joins Halle Berry as a Bond actress of African descent.

The film trailer promises to deliver everything fans have come to expect from their favorite spy series. There's a motorcycle crashing through a window, Bond jumping onto a moving train and much more. "Skyfall" is the 23rd film in the James Bond franchise. Previous actors to portray 007 include: Sean Connery, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.

The newest movie about the MI6 man hits theaters in November.

So what do you think? Were you fooled into thinking that James Bond was really "sky-falling" with the Queen?
