On playing “James Bond” again in the upcoming, “Skyfall”: “It really shook me up and made me look at the world in a very different way. Fame and fortune, for want of a better expression is, erm, f***ing scary. My background is not well off. And there aren’t many people you can ask for advice about [dealing with] that.” On the difference between himself and James Bond: “I’m not James Bond. You know me well enough to know there is a difference between Bond and me. I know I’m not funny. So I have to work at it to find the comic moments.
