James Bond

Played by: Roger Moore

Description: With more tounge-in-cheek innuendos and a less gritty portrayal, Live and Let Die introduces Roger Moore as the new James Bond, a role he takes in stride. The movie, as are many of Moore's films, lacks a certain edge that the Connery Bonds had. Still, Moore makes the character his own: a secret agent more likely to crack a one-liner than kill someone in cold blood.
