    Default Daniel Craig and Sean Connery were no good as James Bond says Sir Roger Moore

    Why I don't think Daniel Craig and Sean Connery were any good as 007, by Bond legend Sir Roger Moore



    By Emma Reynolds

    Sir Roger Moore has revealed he does not think Daniel Craig or Sean Connery were as good as him at playing 007.
    Sir Roger slammed Craig's latest offering Quantum of Solace and said he had struggled to decipher Connery's Scottish accent, in a speech at Cambridge University.

    'Sean is a good actor, itís a pity I canít understand what heís saying,' he said, according to the Daily Mirror.






    Bond legend: Sir Roger Moore, left as 007 and right, now, said he found Quantum of Solace to be 'like a long, disjointed commercial'


    Not stirred: Sir Roger, pictured with Gloria Hendry in 1973's Live and Let Die, believes his fellow Bond actors aren't a patch on him

    Speaking about Daniel Craig's latest Bond outing Quantum of Solace, he added: 'I didn't like the last Bond film, it was like a long, disjointed commercial.'

    Sir Roger, who last played the secret agent in 1985's View to a Kill, said the 2008 blockbuster was spoiled by a shaky plot.


    He appeared in seven films in the franchise and is the longest-serving Bond actor.
    The 84-year-old told students the best thing about playing 007 for more than a decade was 'being paid on Fridays'.

    He said his favourite Bond girl was his fourth wife Kristina Tholstrup, 71, a Danish-Swedish multi-millionaire who was listening in the audience.

    Johnny Depp is his favourite contemporary actor, he said, but he added: 'I just wish he would change his name to something I can remember.'

    The name's Bond: Sean Connery - seen here with Ursula Andress in 1962's Dr No - was too hard to understand because of his thick Scottish accent, Sir Roger told a shcoked crowd


    Secret revealed: Daniel Craig , pictured in Quantum Of Solace, will not be pleased at Sir Roger's comments

    Funny he should say that because he's my second least favourite Bond, only just coming in behind George Lazenby. He was always far too smarmy for my tastes.

    I agree with both of you. Quantum of Solace was unwatchable and Roger Moore's one note Bond became a bore.

    Yup. I always hated Roger Moore for his minimalist acting. When I saw him interviewed on jonathan Ross he was completely different & totally hilarious though. It was weird.

    Peter Sellers was a better James Bond than Roger Moore. Of course, that's not much of an insult because Peter Sellers was a genius.

    Let's face it, none of the Bond actors were particularly good actors but even then I'd put Roger Moore near the bottom of the list. He's so stilted and wooden. Sean Connery was the best by far.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I hated Quantum Of Solace. I like Daniel Craig because honestly I couldnt have cared less about Bond until I saw Casino Royale but Quantum Of Solace was a serious letdown. As for Sean Connery, hes alright. Ill reserve judgment until I see the other Bonds in action.

    He is nuts. There may be a few out there who liked him best, but I think most, (not all) people agree Connery was the best.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    Daniel Craig was at least sexy and eye candy, can't say the same for Moore.
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    I remember reading a book where the author said that the only reason Moore would have been a better Bond than Connery is that Moore looked like he actually cared whether his martini was shaken or stirred.

    Daniel Craig, aka Playmate Pout, was the worst Bond ever. He sucks.

    I liked Roger Moore's Bond the best. But then again, I was 10 or so and thought that Jaws guy was the coolest thing ever.

    If I were to rank my Bonds it would be:

    Roger Moore
    Timothy Dalton
    Daniel Craig
    Pierce Brosnan
    Sean Connery
    that other guy i haven't seen
