Ailing Craig soldiers on

James Bond is looking shaken and stirred.

Actor Daniel Craig was taken to the hospital after slicing the tip of his finger Wednesday in the latest of several injuries to plague the set of "Quantum of Solace," the newest installment of the spy movie franchise, the New York Daily News reports. However, the 40-year-old star showed the toughness of his on-screen alter ego by returning to the set for work later in the day.

It's just the latest injury in a production that has been called "jinxed" by insiders: A week ago, a gash to Mr. Craig's face required eight stitches. The actor reportedly also bruised his ribs earlier in the shoot.

"Quantum of Solace" is the 22nd installment of the James Bond franchise. Mr. Craig's debut as 007 in 2006's "Casino Royale" grossed $594 million worldwide.
