Rumors swirled yesterday that a certain debonair, James Bond type was about town. And it's true: Daniel Craig was hanging out in Baltimore. Chef Cindy Wolf confirmed this morning that Craig dined at Charleston last night. "I love that I can say this -- Daniel Craig ate at my restaurant Charleston last night!" she Tweeted. "Woo hooo! He is James Bond!" Wolf told Insider the celebrity appearance was particularly cool because she'd just seen Craig's new movie, "Skyfall," the night before.

Actress Lana Wood had been quietly sending out her autograph for years, answering letters from her fans. But then a stranger made her think that maybe there was a better way. "A gentleman called me and said he was an autograph dealer," Wood says over the phone from her home near Los Angeles. "He wanted to be upfront with me - he said that it had come to his attention that I respond to fan letters and had been sending out photos. …He said, 'Do you realize that these people turn around and sell them?

Here's a holiday gift for the theatergoer who thinks he's seen everything: a James Bond Christmas play."Double 'O' Xmas (or I Was a Reindeer for the CIA)" is the unwieldy title of the Bond spoof produced by the Impossible Industrial Action theater company at the Theatre Project.Is it naughty or nice?Without intending to confuse Santa, it's a little of both. The play had its origin in two separate shows -- hence the combo title -- written by Don Arab in 1984 for a midnight comedy series at Towson State University.

Stringer Bell, John Luther, Nelson Mandela and maybe the next James Bond - the career of Idris Elba is on the rise. At 40, Elba is one of the most sought-after and respected actors on either side of the Atlantic. And this week, BBC America has four nights of “Luther” that showcase his remarkable emotional range and dramatic power to an extent not seen even on HBO's “The Wire.” Elba returns for this very short third season of four episodes airing Tuesday through Friday.

I hope your holiday gift-giving included some books, and if you're still looking, here are the best coffee-table books I've seen in the past month of so. These are the sort of photo- and graphic-rich editions that look great in a living room -- and that overwhelm Kindles or other e-readers. Some favorites: -- "History's Greatest Images" by TIME, is billed as a compilation of "the World's 100 Most Influential Photographs. " The classics are all there: the flag-raising at Iwo Jima, Babe Ruth, JFK, school desegregation, the World Trade Center.

There are two TV treats tonight, but both of the goodies are also oldies: a double feature of early James Bond movies on TBS and, on ABC, a prime-time showing of Pee-wee Herman's delightful first film. Other than that, and a fresh episode of "The Marshal," tonight's TV is as dull as Whitewater.* "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 2) -- CBS was already through with its Saturday-morning cycle of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" shows, and into reruns, when the Paul Reubens indecent-exposure scandal hit the news.

HIS EXPLOITS HAVE been chronicled in more than 20 movies. He has been portrayed by six actors, has bedded umpteen of the world's most beautiful women and fought the bad guys everywhere from underwater to outer space. He has persisted as a pop-culture mainstay for more than half a century, and he shows no signs of slowing down. How does James Bond do it? "I think the reason for our longevity has been [that] we've kept with the times and reinvented ourselves time and again along the way," says Barbara Broccoli, co-producer of Ian Fleming's Casino Royale, set to open Friday, the 21st in a series of films that dates back to 1962's Dr. No and the first to star Bond No. 6, Daniel Craig.

In the realm of pure escapist film fare on television, nobody does it better than Bond, James Bond. And now he has some assistance from cable agent Ted Turner.Turner's TBS basic cable service has become a Wednesday night refuge for Bond-o-philes this fall. Turner Broadcasting earlier this year purchased the OO7 film archives, ran 12 of them over seven successive days in March, and began this fall to run them out again weekly, in roughly chronological order of production.Tonight's entry, at 8:05, is "The Spy Who Loved Me," with Roger Moore, Barbara Bach and Curt Jurgens.

As technology catches up with America's new security needs, those charged with protecting the vast waterfronts of 361 U.S. ports and billions of tons of cargo are being presented with a dizzying array of anti-terrorism gadgetry that their makers insist can do better than a fence and a guard. And with lives and global commerce on the line, many ports are at least exploring what is available. Experts say this James Bond-style equipment is still evolving. Most of it carries hefty price tags, companies acknowledge.

Britney, you are no Pussy Galore. A recent Extra television report revealed that Britney Spears has had the gall to approach Barbara Broccoli, a producer of the James Bond films, with a view to becoming the next Bond Girl. (The 21st installment of the film franchise is slated for a November 2005 release.) With Spears' brazen request on the table, perhaps it is time for a refresher on what a Bond Girl is and what she is not. A new coffee-table book, Bond Girls Are Forever: The Women of James Bond (Harry N. Abrams, $40)
