Actor Daniel Craig wants to play James Bond for as long as he can and is looking forward to reprising his role as the British spy for the third time in new movie 'Skyfall'.

However, the actor - who took over from Pierce Brosnan as the suave spy in 2005's "Casino Royale" - knows there will be a time when he has to give it up.

"I know there'll be someone after me, and hopefully someone after them - I'm just trying to keep the series going," he added. Directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes, "Skyfall" also stars Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe.

The spy film is slated for a November 9 release in cinemas across the US. Craig, also said that "Skyfall" is going to be bigger than his previous Bond movies "Casino Royale" and "Quantum Of Solace" "The first one was a whirr - it was a new experience and flew by -, the second was the tricky second album, but this one we've really planned and got a great script. It's going to be different from the last one, but it will still be a great Bond movie."
