Roger Moore as James Bond



Filed under : About.com, Other

Following Sean Connery’s second departure from the Bond franchise, producers Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman turned to British TV star, Roger Moore, to fill those rather large shoes. But right off the bat, Moore was roundly criticized even before his first Bond film as being too much of a lightweight to play the role. Regardless, Moore spent 12 years playing James Bond – longer than any other actor – and accounted for at least a few of the franchise’s best films.
