    He seemed to know what he was doing with Bond, and it’s a shame he only did one. TWINE was able to introduce new ideas to the Bond films that have been present ever since, but the classic Bond feel is always there. He would have been great with Craig.
    Felt like a modern Peter Hunt in OHMSS and a bit more polished at that.
    a reasonable rate of return

    Remembering Telly Savalas on what would've been his 99th birthday.
    Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"

    I know it has already been posted in the general tributes thread but I felt the passing of Nikki van der Zyl should be posted here in the Bond Alumni thread. She will always be a part of Bond history and should have been more well known and credited than she was. RIP Nikki.

    Sad to hear if the passing of Yaphet Kotto - a wonderful and menacing Bond villain:

    Very sad to hear this.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with him via phone on behalf of AJB not too long ago. An absolute gentleman and a delight to talk with.

    RIP Yaphet Kotto. A fine actor, memorable Bond villain and I was delighted that Barbel was able to interview him on our behalf...great that he turned out to be a delightful gent.

    Rest in Peace Mr. Big. Yaphet Kotto was fantastic as Alonzo Mosely, FBI opposite DeNiro in "MIdnight Run"!

    RIP Yaphet Kotto. Such a memorable and wonderful performance as Mr Big.

    Paul Ritter, who had a small role as Guy Haines in Quantum of Solace, has died of a brain tumour at the age of 55. I always thought he was great in Friday Night Dinner and am sad he's died at such a young age.

    RIP Helen McCrory at the early age of 52.
