Daniel Craig delivered his famous Bond line one last time on Thursday after punching James Corden for a hilarious skit on The Late Late Show.

The actor, 53, and the comedian, 43, put their comedic chops on display during a Role Call skit in which they recreated scenes from some of the biggest blockbusters in movie history. 

The pair’s trip through film history ended with Craig preparing to say his famous line, but after being interrupted by Corden, he proceeded to punch the comic to the ground.

Among other scenes, the duo recreated Back To The Future and were joined by the film’s beloved star Christopher Lloyd, 82, while Geena Davis, 65, made a cameo for their turn at Thelma & Louise.

Corden and Craig rushed through Star Wars, Harry Potter and Dirty Dancing among other films before moving onto the Bond franchise, with particular homage to the actor’s appearances in the series..

‘The name’s Bond. James Bond,’ Craig said as he fought off a villainous Corden while paying homage to Casino Royale, his first film as Agent 007, before repeating his line once again during a nod to the sequel Skyfall.

Once again saying the line for a scene from the 2015 film Spectre, Daniel prepared to say it once again in a recreation of his fifth and final Bond appearance in No Time To Die.

Beginning the sentence, Craig was cut off as James sped onto the set with a drinks cart to say: ‘The name’s Corden. James Corden.’

First time: 'The name's Bond. James Bond,' Craig said as he fought off a villainous Corden while paying homage to Casino Royale, his first film as Agent 007

A bewildered Craig asked him: ‘What are you doing?,’ before James responded: ‘Come on, mate, give me a break. It’s your last Bond movie, give someone else a shot. Yeah, let’s do it. Come on. Appletini, shaken not stirred.’

Craig then delivered an over-the-top punch to James, knocking him out.

Reciting his famous line one final time, Craig said: ‘Now, for the last time. The last time. The name’s Bond. James Bond,’ as the skit ended. 

Someone else: 'Come on, mate, give me a break. It's your last Bond movie, give someone else a shot. Yeah, let's do it. Come on. Appletini, shaken not stirred,' Corden said

Craig was joined on the CBS talk show by his No Time To Die co-star Rami Malek, 40, who plays the villain in the film.

Malek revealed that he used to insert his head shot into pizza boxes when he was working as a food deliverer in Los Angeles early in his career.

Craig recalled arriving in Los Angeles for the first time with only a debit card that had ’50 bucks on it’ and told how he called Warner Bros for cash so he could get a hotel room without a credit card.

The English actor remembered that the Sheraton Hotel he stayed at was surrounded by freeways ‘and Universal Studios, which I went to three times’.

Malek said he didn’t hesitate when offered the chance to be a Bond villain.

‘No, of course not. It is the greatest franchise we’ve known. Backbone of cinematic history. It’s Bond. And it’s his last one,’ Malek said. ‘No brainer.’

Craig said he was proud that they kept the tragic love story from Casino Royale as part of the plot through the sequels.

‘So somehow we’ve had this narrative all the way through, and that, I don’t know, that feels very unique and I’m incredibly proud of the fact we’ve done that. But it really feels like it tied them all together,’ Craig said.

No Time To Die had its world premiere in London last week followed by its release in cinemas in the UK.

The film, which is the 25th installment in the Bond franchise, will be released in the United States on Friday.

Incredibly proud: 'So somehow we've had this narrative all the way through, and that, I don't know, that feels very unique and I'm incredibly proud of the fact we've done that. But it really feels like it tied them all together,' Craig said
