It was even more unnerving that they had different actors play Blofeld every time he showed up.....


I had no objections to that - even though Donald Pleasance was my favourite - but I found it bizarre that they didn't go with a bald actor in DAF. 

I'm not saying it's the most important thing in the world, but he had been bald prior to DAF. Just seems an odd casting choice.

As for Felix Leiter, I'm glad David Hedison resumed the role in LTK. It may have taken 16 years for there to be continuity in the role, but at least it happened eventually!

Leiter being played by different actors started with Jack Lord wanting a bigger part and co-star billing after DR. NO. It's never bothered me, because the Bond movies are stand-alone movies. Or at least they used to be.

Shaun Barry,i too,think Craig is too dour! I think his
films have tried to get a `Bourne` audience and to a
certain extent lost some of the franchise`s charm.The
last two films seem to have tried to recapture it and
a bit of the humour.

Connery is the best Bond
Lazenby was good,i think if he`d had another film he`d
have settled in nicely.
Moore was good,but stayed too long,he was too old at
the end.
Dalton was ok,but didn`t really click for me.
Brosnan i felt was good,if a little too smooth.

As for Luke Evans,good call,can you imagine the media
furore over casting a gay actor as Bond?
