FRWL Starring...Roger Moore?
Jeff Marshall envisions Roger Moore in Sean Connery's role as the first actor to portray James Bond 007News Category: BM Blog PostsPosted on September 2, 2008 10:51 AM
As some James Bond fans may be aware, James Bond actor number two, Sir Roger Moore, was rumored to be considered for the iconic secret agent role before Sean Connery in the early 1960's.
If Sir Roger Moore had taken on the role as James Bond prior to Sean Connery, the James Bond franchise would have been drastically different than it is today. It may not have even existed!
Anyways, Roger Moore fans can thank renowned artist Jeff Marshall who, again, contributes the following image to BondMovies.com - depicting Roger Moore as James Bond in one of (in my opinion) the greatest Sean Connery (and all-time) James Bond movie, From Russia With Love:
Why the image? Mr. Marshall says that he fooled with the images in part because of Sir Roger's 80th birthday as well as Harry Saltzman's comments about Moore's Bond role when Live And Let Die was released.
Special thanks to Jeff Marshall!!!
