James Bond 007 (Connery/Moore/Villains etc)

Recommended Posts

Talking of 007, old Roger Moore (the worst bond ever) is knocking on in years, could be one to watch out for in 2005...I think he's in his 70's now...

They're young yet compared to how old people are Living these days, Roger is only 77, and Sean is just 74.

 

Meanwhile, Dr. No himself from the very first James Bond is 87 this year.

It would make an intereseting contrast to the Carry on Dying thread though. The "Never Say Die Again" thread.

So what you're telling me is there's hope for at least one more Connery run as Bond? But what if...

You still have a Bond villain Christopher Lee who will be reaching 83 this year but also seems to be in good health.

 

Roger Moore is closing in I think, he did go through surgery didn't he?

 

As for Connery, never, he will live forever.

 

Lois Maxwell or Miss Moneypenny is turning 78 this year.

 

Same with David Hedison who played Felix in a couple of Bond movie movies, turning 78 this year.

Keeping very well apparently, and I don't mean in the 'preserved in formaldehyde' sense.

According to This he 'is a French actor, known chiefly for his suave manner and good looks' which is so close to a description of my good self I could hardly beleive it...apart from the bit bout him being French...oh and a couple of other minor details here and there.

 

Of course he was a member of the French Resistance, as were 99% of Frenchmen in 1946.

B) The same phenomenon occurs with people of a certain age who claim to have seen Kilburn and the High Roads play live. ;)

Pardon me for a moment while I go to watch some standing water since it's far more exciting than your lackluster raving.

Good evening people. I come to you with troubling news. It would seem that our dearest Sean Connery is leading a double life. By day, he a sub-standard actor relying on the stupidity of his fans. By night, he a raving homosexual lap dancer.

 

I know what you are thinking. How can I prove this? Well folks, I have a picture that will shock and amaze you. Here is Sean pictured with mediocore Australian actor, Alan Fletcher (aka Anal Feltcher).

I have another picture that proves my theory. Here Sean is pictured assuring his fans that he is indeed gay.

I have made this post because I have only wanted to warn you. If Seans reign on of child molestation and gay act are to continue, the his career could be jeprodized.

 

Take this information as you will...but I only do this to help Sean. I have had the pleasure of meeting him once, and he is very nice. We had a night of passion sex, and he showed me a very time.

 

Now excuse, I have to go. I start my first day of primary school today.

 

Grazing...

Bond Villains would be quite a good source - from memory:

 

Dr No - er...

Goldfinger - Gert Frobe (dead)

From Russia with Love - Rosa Kleb but can't remember the actress

Thunderball - Adolfo Celli (dead)

You Only Live Twice - Donald Pleasance (dead)

Diamonds are Forever - Charles Grey(dead)

Never say Never Again - Klaus Maria von Brandauer

 

Live and Let Die - James Earl Jones?

Spy who Loved Me - That German bloke who always played German generals in 60s war films and is probably dead

Man with the Golden Gun - Christopher Lee (possible 2006 candidate?)

Moonraker - Drax but can't remember the actor's name - was in Name of the Rose

Octopussy - Louis Jourdan (see above)

View to a Kill - Christpher Walken

For Your eyes Only - Julian Glover?

 

OHMSS - Telly Savalas

 

The Living Daylights - God knows

Licence to Kill - Mexican bloke with bad skin

 

..and can't remember any of the Brosnan ones apart from Jonathan Pryce and Sean Bean doing his weird Hollywood toff accent (from Sheffield..). Oh and Toby Stephens in the last one. Christ, I think he's younger than me. Oh God, it's worse than policeman looking younger...

 

Not doing this any more - most depressing thought I've had for a long time....Bond villains being younger than me - arghhhhhhh.....

Excellent topic VB. Might I also suggest:

 

Richard Kiel, who played "Jaws" in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. Although he turned good and soppy (marking the end of Bond film magic) in Moonraker, he was unquestionably one of the most well-known Bond villains. Turns 66 later this year, and extra large people always seem to go early.

 

Yaphet Kotto played "Kananga" in Live and Let Die. He's 68 this year and appears to have stooped making films a few years ago.

 

Geoffrey Holder, also from Live and Let Die. He played "Baron Samedi", the guy with a skeleton painted on his face who first pops out of a grave yard and finishes the film sitting and laughing on the front of the train in which Bond and Miss Solitaire are having the obligatory closing credits make-out scene. He turns 75 this year, but was the narrator of the new Charlie & the Chocolate Factory film, so he's presumably holding up well.

 

Sadly no longer with us are Robert Shaw (evil blond Grant from Russia with Love, as well as playing the baddie from The Sting and the crazy sea captain who got bitten in half in Jaws), Vladek Sheybal, who played chess master Kronsteen in the same film (and who looked a lot like Vladimir Putin), and Herve Villechaize (Knick-knack from Man with the Golden Gun and Tattoo from Fantasy Island), who being a midget killed himself.

Yes indeed - didnt think of the various hench-persons. OK here goes:

 

Dr No - don't think there was one

Goldfinger - Oddjob Harold Sakata (dead)

FRWL - as you say the great, under-rated and sorely missed Robert Shaw (also great performances in Man for All Seasons and Battle of the Bulge)

YOLT - no idea

TB - thin German looking bloke - gets harpooned I think

DAF - Vint and Quin? The 2 Happy assassins

Never Say Never - another thin German bloke who gets harpooned?

 

LALD - Tee Hee - Julius W Harris apparently - the huge black guy with the steel claw

SWLM - Richard Kiel

MWGG - Nik Nak - Herve Villechaize, dead, as you say

MR - ditto

VTAK - Grace Jones

FYEO - different German bloke...who gets harpooned. Maybe...

OP - Indian turbanned bloke who almost certainly doesn't get harpooned - may have played tennis though - but I think I'm mixing that up with a supporting goodie - yes that's it - VJ Amritraj is in it - how old is he?

 

Dalton movies - don't know, don't care

Ditto Brosnan - aren't the "heavies" all girls in his films, anyway? So they'll be around for years yet.

 

So my picks would be Kiel, Harris and any bloke with a harpoon in his chest

Jeroen Krabbé, who played General Georgi Koskov in The Living Daylights, was born in 1944 and apparently in good health.
