Seems even the queen can't resist the opportunity to act with Daniel Craig.
The British monarch didn't need much persuading to take part in the brief flick that electrified the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony, says Jackie Brock-Doyle, the spokeswoman for the organizing committee.
"She liked the whole concept Danny brought together," she says — presumably right down to the detail of having the queen's corgis, Monty, Holly and Willow, similarly take starring roles.
The matter was presented to her majesty by organizing committee chairman Sebastian Coe last year.
