David Bautista Shares Photo from When Daniel Craig Broke His Nose During Spectre Fight Scene
Daniel Craig recently recounted the on-set gaffe during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show . Posting a selfie taken from the set of the spy film, Bautista wrote on Twitter, "I dug this up.

The Broadway project also reteams Craig with Gold, who directed the actor in a 2016 Off Broadway production of Othello. Craig last starred on Broadway in a Mike Nichols-directed 2013 production of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal opposite Rafe Spall and Rachel Weisz. Craig made his Broadway debut opposite Hugh Jackman in a 2009 production of playwright Keith Huff’s A Steady Rain. (Jackman also returns to Broadway this season in a musical revival of The Music Man.)
Craig’s London stage credits include Hurlyburly with the Peter Hall Company at The Old Vic, Angels in America at The National Theatre and A Number at the Royal Court with Michael Gambon.
