    Moore and Craig are the only two actors to hae more then one male singer sing their title sequences

    That is not strictly true - only Connery and Craig have two named male singers (Tom Jones and Matt Munro, Chris Cornell and Jack White respectively); Moore had Paul McCartney & Wings ( a male singer and his group) whilst I presume the other one you refer to is Duran Duran which is a group with a male lead singer.

    Using your logic then Brosnan is the only Bond that has a female singer on all title songs.

    Brosnan : "DISGUSTING HABITT" (One of Bond's trademarks is smoking a cigarette)

    Craig : *after being asked if he wants his martini shaken or stirred* "Does it look like i give a ****?" ( Classic line destroyed)

    What about Brosnan's American accent in The World Is Not Enough? In one of the chases involving Christmas Jones, when asked his name he says 'Baarnd, James Baarnd........' -

    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.

    Hi Blackleiter, just noticed this question. Brosnan played agent Mike Graham in two films, "Death Train" and "Night Watch" (both also have alternative titles, "Detonator" and "Detonator II: Night Watch") in the early 90s before his Bond stint.

    The opening sequence after the PTS in Goldrfinger takes place in Miami, although it was actually filmed at Pinewood studios.

    Connery starred in The Frightened City (1961) an excellent gangster movie set in London. Connery’s performance is very much like his persona in DN.
    Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

    Didn't know about that one CoolHandBond- I must check it out sometime!

    On the subject of early Connery appearances, the 1957 movie Hell Drivers stars a young Connery alongside Patrick McGoohan, who turned down the role of Bond in 1973...


    Lazenby and Moore are the only Bonds whose physical likenesses do not appear in video games (a small pixelated Dalton appears in the video game based on TLD, Brosnan in Everything or Nothing, Connery in the 2005 FRWL, and Craig in 007 Legends etc.)
