How Roger Moore Made the Role of James Bond His Own

24 May 2017 2:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few actors have come across quite so invincible onscreen as Roger Moore, the James Bond star who dodged death by sharks (“Live and Let Die”), yo-yo buzzsaw (“Octopussy”), space lasers (“Moonraker”) and a demented Christopher Walken (“A View to a Kill”), barely so much as creasing his tuxedo in the process.

Moore played 007 in seven movies over the course of a dozen years, dodging more bullets — golden and otherwise — than we could possibly count. But sooner or later, fate was sure to catch up with the debonair star. All men are mortal, of course, but not so Bond, who’s been saving the world since 1962 (“Dr. No”), and with his passing, Moore became the first big-screen Bond to leave us.

He was actually the third star to play the part, taking over the role from Sean Connery in 1973, and unlike Australian model George Lazenby (who played 007 just once, in “On »

James Bond Actors Pay Tribute to Sir Roger Moore

23 May 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world lost a legend today, as Sir Roger Moore, the man who played 007 in seven James Bond movies, passed away after losing a battle with cancer. Moore, who was 89 years old, was the man who played the character for the longest and brought a very distinct style to the role of Bond. Now, his fellow James Bond stars have released statements, paying tribute to the late actor.

Roger Moore famously took over the lead role in the James Bond franchise following Sean Connery's departure once he completed Diamonds are Forever. Despite Connery's mixed feelings toward the producers of the franchise, he never harbored ill will for Roger Moore and released a statement to Entertainment Weekly following the news of his passing. Here's what he had to say.

"I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing. We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. »

Roger Moore Remembered: How His Light Touch Made Him the Most Enduring Bond

23 May 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The passing of Sir Roger Moore at 89 marks the first James Bond to do so. And the response from one of my sons was telling: “James Bond can’t die — he’s immortal.”

That sentiment will be shared by many Bond fans, particularly the generation that grew up with Moore in the ’70s and ’80s. Moore, who embraced the lighter side of Ian Fleming’s superspy, was also the most enduring, making a record seven franchise movies: “Live And Let Die” (1973), “The Man With The Golden Gun” (1974), “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977), “Moonraker” (1979), “For Your Eyes Only” (1981), “Octopussy” (1983), and “A View To A Kill (1985).”

While Sean Connery defined Bond as uber-cool and free-spirited (he enjoyed killing as much as shagging), Moore redefined him as devil may care to disarm the baddies. The first Bond to hail from London, Moore’s Bond wasn’t in it for the spying, he was »

Roger Moore, Former James Bond Actor, Passes Away at 89

23 May 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Roger Moore, who is best known for playing James Bond in seven movies throughout the 70s and 80s, has passed away at the age of 89. The actor succumbed to cancer. The veteran star died in Switzerland. It has been announced that he will have a private funeral in Monaco in accordance with his wishes.

To some, Roger Moore is the only James Bond that matters. To others, he is the quintessential Bond, personifying the sexiness and cool European swagger that made his take on the character slightly different than those that came before him and those that followed. He was the first to present Bond with a grand sense of humor, that hasn't been matched in any of other movies in this long running series. But no matter what your stance on the matter is, Moore is one of the best Bonds to ever sip a Martini and chase both »

23 May 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Legendary British actor Roger Moore has died at the age of 89 after an iconic career on the silver screen — including his record time as James Bond. This 2008 interview from EW takes a look back at Moore’s career and how he became “the best Bond.”

“Can I get you a drink, Mr. Moore?”

The waiter stands there, secretly hoping that he’ll say those five words known from the beaches of Rio to the bazaars of Cairo to the ski slopes of Gstaad: Vodka martini—shaken, not stirred.

“I’ll have a…Bloody Mary.”

James Bond Fan Fights MGM's Bid to Toss Box Set Class Action

17 May 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Do Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig constitute all of the onscreen personifications of charismatic super spy James Bond, or must one include David Niven?

That question is before a Washington federal judge, as he evaluates whether a class action over a 50th anniversary DVD box set should be allowed to move forward.

Mary Johnson sued MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in April, claiming that she was promised all the Bond films when she bought the set but it was missing two of them: Casino Royale (1967) and Never »

Why I love… Pierce Brosnan

12 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Have better shoulders-in-a-suit ever existed? I think not

I need only remember my graduation ball to know that a man in a well-cut suit is an all too rare thing. But there are people who wear suits as if they’re doing the garment a favour, and we should applaud them when we see them. So put your hands together for Irish-American actor Pierce Brosnan. Have better shoulders-in-a-suit ever existed? I think not.

I first saw Brosnan, who turns 64 next week, in Mrs Doubtfire, playing the new hunk in Sally Field’s life. He left no real impression – the film belonged to Robin Williams, after all. But then came James Bond. I was 13 when GoldenEye was released, and I fell instantly in love. (Disclaimer: my favourite Bond is Timothy Dalton, but Brosnan is a close second.) Brosnan felt like Bond to me. There’s the face, which in 1995 was smoothly »

Why 2007 was a great year for film

17 April 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Apr 18, 2017

10 years ago was was a high watermark in Hollywood - and British - filmmaking. We've been looking at why...

Ten years on, and 2007 must surely be remembered as one of the finest years in English-language film-making, quite possibly the best of this century so far. Like 1939, 1976, or 1994, it was one of those years in which a succession of veritable classics came into being. So many, in fact, that some of the best examples were cruelly overlooked by the hype machine of the day. A decade later, it’s high time to look back at 2007 for both its celebrated landmarks and forgotten masterpieces.

Doctor Who: leaks, secrecy and publicity

The balance of secrecy and publicity is a tricky one for Doctor Who to keep, but spoilers are simply a question of manners...

This article contains no spoilers for the forthcoming tenth series of Doctor Who. However, the comments section may discuss recently revealed plot details.

Doctor Who’s Ultimate Surprise Comebacks

10 April 2017 11:50 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As showrunner Steven Moffat has said, it’s tough keeping a secret in the universe of Doctor Who. Not only are the press watching your every move, but an army of fans are also camping out by the shoot, speculating via online forums and passing judgment on the slightest nugget of information. It’s a wonder anything comes out of the blue for audiences these days.

So when a development does manage to sneak through the net it’s all the sweeter, whether it be a game-changing announcement or an element that defies expectation and makes it to the actual screening itself! The revelation that John Simm will be returning as arch enemy the Master fits neatly into the former category.

From the People Archive: Pierce Brosnan Remembers the Wife He Loved and Lost to Ovarian Cancer

6 April 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Pierce Brosnan, who stars in AMC’s new Western series The Son, recently opened up about losing his wife and daughter to ovarian cancer. Look back on People’s 1992 cover story on the British actor, as he reflected on his wife’s memory four months after her death — and the profound impact she had on his life.

When His Agent Phoned Pierce Brosnan in early March to tell him that his latest film, The Lawnmower Man, was a box office hit—a Brosnan first—the 39-year-old Irish-born actor remembers how he “whooped and hollered” with his two boys, Christopher, 19, and Sean, »

Brosnan's back! Why we should celebrate the shouty former Bond's return

His post-007 career hasn’t flourished, but finally Brosnan might have found the perfect role: an angry patriarch who likes to yell at the top of his voice

As far as I’m able to tell, there are three James Bonds that should have never been James Bond. George Lazenby shouldn’t have been James Bond because he wasn’t a good enough actor, and Timothy Dalton shouldn’t have been James Bond because he was too good an actor. And then there’s Pierce Brosnan.

And The Next James Bond Is…

5 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Let’s take a few minutes to reflect on what could have been.

After two years of speculation, it seems like the question of who will be the seventh actor to take on the iconic role in the long-running film series will have to go on the back burner. Last Monday, the New York Post gossip section published an article citing multiple sources that reported that current Bond actor Daniel Craig is in the final stages of negotiating a return to his most iconic role. If true, it would mark a pretty serious change of tune for Craig, who, in an oft quoted Time Out interview from October 2015, responded to the question of his returning to do another Bond movie thusly: “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All »

Comic Book Review – Penny Dreadful

Calum Petrie reviews Titan’s Penny Dreadful

Featuring Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), Sir Malcom Murray (Timothy Dalton) and Sembene (Danny Sapani) the story recounts the events that led up to the explosive first season of the show. This prequel reveals the terrifying events that led Vanessa to try and find her missing childhood friend, Mina Harker, and exposes the true nature of the vampiric monsters infesting Victorian London.

The events within this 129 page extravaganza fill in a story gap that might just give the less hardcore fans of the series the much needed information they desire. Taking place just before the events that kick off the first series of the TV program, the story focuses around Sir Malcolm Murray and Ms Vanessa Ives alongside some characters that help deliver a pretty comprehensive story in such a short space of time.

The book has an outstandingly beautiful art style which beautifully »

Coming to a Casino Near You: James Bond Slot Machines

8 March 2017 9:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The owners of the James Bond franchise have made a multi-year licensing deal with gambling products specialist Scientific Games Corp., which will lead to the super-spy’s image being used on casino slot machines.

The exclusive agreement was announced Wednesday between Scientific Games with Eon Productions Limited, Danjaq LLC and MGM Interactive, a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The deal gives Scientific Games the rights to leverage all past and future James Bond films, as well as the film’s talent portraying James Bond.

Scientific Games said it expects to showcase the first James Bond-themed slot games at the Global Gaming Expo on Oct. 3-5 in Las Vegas. That means the first machines could begin appearing in casinos next year.

Created in 1953 by novelist Ian Fleming, Bond was a frequent patron of high-end casinos in the books and two dozen films that followed — including two versions of “Casino Royale.”

Daniel Craig Is Second Longest-Serving James Bond in 007 History

20 February 2017 10:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The future of the James Bond franchise is a bit uncertain right now, but we can be certain it will continue. Currently, Daniel Craig is still the man playing 007 until he officially declares that he won't be back for the next installment. That being the case, he just hit a major milestone today, becoming the second longest-serving actor to play James Bond in the history of the franchise.

According to NME, Daniel Craig has now been playing James Bond for 4,147 days. That puts him just ahead of Pierce Brosnan, who played 007 in four movies, which spanned a grand total of 4,146 days. Craig first played the iconic spy in 2006's Casino Royale, which served as a total reboot of the franchise and is considered by many to be one of the best James Bond movies ever made. The 48-year-old actor also has the distinction of starring in the only Bond movie »
