As a son of a Methodist minister, growing up in small prairie towns during the Depression, he was an unlikely spokesman for the political and cultural aspirations of an emerging 'counterculture.' ...

Adele Shows Off Nails, Sheet Music for James Bond Theme 'Skyfall': VIDEO

Skyfall

As anticipation builds for the latest installation in the James Bond series, Skyfall, speculation has mounted that Adele would be the latest Bond theme singer. Now, Adele has pretty much confirmed that's the case, tweeting a photo of a well-manicured hand and the sheet music from the film.

It's unclear when the track, co-written and produced by her production partner Paul Epworth ("Rolling in the Deep") and arranged by Epworth and J.A.C. Redford, will officially drop, but the film opens on November 9.

A just-released behind the scenes clip looks at the film's extended underwater sequence.

Outfitting with floating chunks of ice for what is presumably a scene in the North Atlantic, the 1.2 million gallon pool is a watery reflection of the advanced sets above ground, with high-tech speakers, monitors, bubble jets and state-of-the-art trailers.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

And the latest shirtless Craig shot, released last week, below.
