Sir Roger Moore Is Stirred, Not Shaken, By 007's Legacy
The most charmingly self-deprecating of all the James Bonds, Sir Roger Moore has a new book out called Bond on Bond: Reflections On 50 Years Of James Bond Movies and came to town to celebrate that plus the 50th anniversary of Bond flicks.
We Bond-ed for my new column, in which Sir Roger told me:
*What he thinks of Daniel Craig
*The messages he sent to Craig when the latter actor nabbed the part of Bond.
*What Moore was told when he got the part, way back in 1973.
*A Bond moment he's not terribly proud of.
*And whether gays should like the Bond films, despite a questionable character in the new one.
Yes, I asked.
As a bonus, I also had a brief chat with Kristen Stewart about her new art house movie and why she did it.
The movie, that is.
Yes, you get two generations of franchise-film legends in one little column. Go ahead and bite.
