Yup, the No Time To Die actor will be honored with a coveted spot on the legendary sidewalk two days before the Oct. 8 Los Angeles premiere of the film. He’ll be placed next to former 007 Roger Moore and will be the fourth franchise leader — after Moore, David Niven, and Pierce Brosnan — to receive the honor.

“Daniel Craig is a British cultural icon, as is James Bond, the man he has portrayed in five 007 films,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in a statement. “We are thrilled to place his terrazzo Walk of Fame star next to the star of another famed actor who also portrayed James Bond, Roger Moore.”
What’s more — the star will be located 7007 Hollywood Boulevard, in a clear homage to the MI6 secret agent’s codename.
