Just a small little game...
Can you think of some facts that only two actors playing Bond had in common? For example:

Only Sean Connery & George Lazenby - Had Brown eyes.

Only Sean Connery & Roger Moore - Played Bond seven times.

Only Pierce Brosnan & George Lazenby - Never had a Felix Leiter in their movies.

Only George Lazenby & Daniel Craig - Didn't end up with a girl in bed at the end of their movies. (Although Craig is proberbly going to change this!)

Only Timothy Dalton & Pierce Brosnan - Had their 'own' unique moneypenny.

Only Timothy Dalton & George Lazenby - Played Bond in just one particular decade.

Only Pierce Brosnan & Roger Moore - Smoked cigars in their movies.

I'm sure you guys can think of more! :)

    Roger Moore and Daniel Craig are the only Bond Actors not to have black hair.

    (Although for some reason Craig is getting negative attention for it but Moore never did lol.)

    Only Dalton and Brosnan have appeared in a film featuring an UAZ-469-series 4x4 (the difference between the UAZ-469 and UAZ-469B is really minimal). Okay, what's the significance of that? Despite appearing in more films than the iconic Yellow Moke and literally just one behind the Aston Martin DB5, thus making it the second-most seen non-background vehicle in the entire Bond franchise, one made a brief cameo in TLD and appeared rather prominently in every one of Brosnan's films. It's not been seen since.
    By the way, are you gonna eat that?

    Sean Connery and Roger Moore both fought a henchman in a train

    Only Connery and Moore have had an actress appear in two of their films as a different character - for Connery it was Martine Bestwick in From Russia With Love and Thunderball; for Moore it was Maud Adams in The Man With the Golden Gun and Octopussy.

    Does it count if the fight is on top of a train? If so, it looks like Craig is about to join the ranks.

    Question - has anyone other than Connery ever portrayed the same character (except Bond) in more than one movie? Connery played Ramirez in Highlander and Highlander II.

    Welcome to AJB007, Mr. DB5, you don't mind me correcting you, but Dalton played Bond twice, The living daylights and License to Kill, (though the latter one doesn't really feel like a Bond film)

    It could be argued that Connery did too. Matt Monro sang From Russia With Love and Sir Tom Jones sang Thunderball.
