James Bond- 007

During the years he was several different people. Even though each play the same role, the actors all have their own flavor in the movies.
From 1962 with the first James Bond movie "Dr. No", Agent 007 was Sean Connery. Now in 2012 Daniel Craig is James Bond in "Sky fall" . Everyone has their favorite James Bond since no two were alike.
Here is a list of each and every one of the actors, the years they were James Bond, and which films they starred in. Leaves me wondering who might the next James Bond be?
Daniel Craig is currently doing a great job of performing as the James Bond character, and since he is contracted for a few of the upcoming films for 2years as well, we may see him for a while.

Sean Connery

The very first James Bond film was played by Sean Connery and it was the one which started the propaganda. "Dr. No" in 1962, every year after that until 1967 Sean Connery was also the actor as James Bond.
Except for 1966 in which that year a Bond film was not released. He also starred in 1971 for his last Bond Film, until 1983 where he played his role in the remake of "Thunderball" for the film "Never Say Never Again".

George Lazenby

Geoge Lazenby played his role in the one and only James Bond film he ever did.
The 1969 "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". Some argue he was not a great actor. Others thought that the audience was not yet ready for the way he acted.
Even if it was his only one, he still played part in the James Bond history. He continued his acting career in other Hollywoodmovies several years after this one, but not as James Bond. Even today he is expressing his concern for some changes to the history of the movies.
In Sky fall, Bond has seen drinking a Heineken beer instead of his 40 year old traditional Martini. George stated "the Martini is a sacred tradition for the character that should not be broken with a beer that really is'nt that great".

Roger Moore

Roger Moore had a pretty extensive stretch from 1973 through 1985 as James Bond. His first film "Live and Let Die" in 1973 was actually turned down by Sean Connery as well as the $5.5 Million paycheck that came along with it, in which he passed the role over to Roger Moore.

Ø       "For Your Eyes Only" 1981
Ø       "Octopussy" 1983
Ø       "A View to Kill" 1985

Timothy Dalton

Timothy Dalton made his first Film from the series in 1987 starring in "The Living Daylights". Unfortunately his second film "Licence To Kill" 1989, was also his last.
Most can agree it was one of the best even though it did not do great commercially.

Pierce Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan played James Bond in "Golden Eye" 1995. With highly developed technology and special effects of the 90's the films became much more special stunts and effects friendly. James Bond was becoming more and more interesting. Pierce Brosnan also appeared in the 1997, 1999, and 2002 film's.

§         "The World is Not Enough" 1999
§         "Die Another Day" 2002
Pierce Brosnan was the lucky agent that got to be the first James Bond Actor of the twenty first century.

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig was the star of the "Casino Royale" movie in 2006, which was the second James Bond movie released for the twenty first century.
"Quantum of solace" was his second film for the series in 2008 and he is also in "Sky Fall" which released  2012. He will be the first James Bond actor to ask for a Heineken beer, instead of the usual Martini in "Sky Fall". He is signed to act in a few more movies for his Bond career. So YES we will still see him around within the next few years.
