There has been talk recently that English Actor, Daniel Craig, resembles Steve McQueen. I think this might have started with an article published in The Washington Post and now various messages boards are flooded with the topic: Is Daniel Craig the new Steve McQueen?
I have to admit I love a bad boy. Although, I picked out good guy, Mark Darcy, as my preference in my recent blog post: "Good Guys Versus Bad Guys: Are you a Mark Darcy kinda gal or a Daniel Cleaver one?" published here on Sunday March 4th, 2007, the bad boy normally wins for me every time.

Sometimes I cut out pictures of my heroines and heroines from magazines. Quite often they are actors who have the same energy and characteristics of the character I would like to convey in my novel. Maybe one day I will use a picture of McQueen or Craig as my inspiration!
What was it I loved so much about him and still do?
I think it was because he didn't conform. He stood alone for what he believed in, both as a film character and as a man in real life.
I read an article only yesterday in the Mail on Sunday, Mc Queen's first wife Neile Adams, said that a movie may be made, based on her book about her life with Steve. She would like Daniel Craig to play his part.
Personally, I think McQueen was a one off but I have to admit, Daniel Craig, from what I have seen of his acting skills, comes a close second. He is also highly charismatic as Steve was. An actor to watch for the future.
What do you think? Is Daniel Craig the new Steve McQueen?
