Daniel Craig talks about the movie and his character in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Interview where Cowboys and Aliens director Jon Favreau and Daniel Craig talk about Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

That trailer is uh... The Dragon Tattoo trailer? It's good, yeah. Yeah, yeah. I love that it's not trying to apologize. It's different.

Absolutely. And I can't sing Sony's praises enough really. Because they've actually... I mean, look, it's a worldwide bestseller. But it's still a big risk. Sure. And making a movie like this, for this much money and not making it PG-13. Well, you couldn't have made the movie. It's a bit pointless making the movie, because the books are so, graphic is not really the word, but they're adult, that's it. Yeah. But they're done it. And they're prepared to put this out as an R and... they seem to be embracing it for the marketing. And why not?

Very different from how he's portrayed in the book, your character Mikael Blomkvist. Yeah, I think so. Well, especially because I also was coming off Cowboys and I was the fittest I think I've ever been in my life. And he was like just literally sending me bowls of pasta to the room. Going, you gotta look like a journalist.

Has he ever tried the accent, that's the one thing I kept saying. I did. I really didn't go for it. I mean, I had a long discussion with David about it. He said i don't want you to do anything that'll get in the way. And I said, I know so many Swedish people or Scandinavian people who have cut-glass English accents. They learn, you know. They listen to the BBC all the time. So I gave it a hint. I tried to get the names right. So it wasn't the Swedish chef from the Muppets? No, I tried that one. He didn't like it.
