His name is Bond...James Bond.
Ian Fleming's character has been played by six (6) actors since 1962.
My favorite Bond was Roger Moore, mainly because I started watching Bond movies with Roger Moore. As I got older and saw older Bond films, Sean Connery epitomized Bond. Until Pierce Brosnan.
Oh my, Brosnan was born to play that character. I was a teenager and had a huge crush on Remington Steele, and even then, I said, he would be a cool James Bond.
Since Lazenby was only in one film, he is often forgotten. I think I have seen his film once, and cannot really remember it. Since Connery was such a favorite, it left a huge void to fill and he probably wasn't accepted by the public.
The same can probably be said about Timothy Dalton. When Roger Moore stopped playing Bond, I did not like the selection of Dalton to fill his shoes and only saw one of his bond films.
I had no problem returning to the films when Brosnan was brought in. I had been wishing for that casting for years.
Since he is no longer the agent licensed to kill, I got out of the Bond business. If I hadn't, I definitely would have when they made Bond blonde. Daniel Craig does not say Bond to me...by no means or stretch of the imagination. So, I will not be venturing back into the land of Ian Fleming any longer.
I cannot think of any actor on the scene today that could make me go back, but I will never say never. The character is intriguing, timeless and ageless. You don't find a lot of those in Hollywood today.
