All 6 Bond Actors Rounded Up for James Bond Unmasked
New book examines the history of the James Bond film series and interviews with all six James Bond actors: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.
- (1888PressRelease) May 27, 2012 - Veteran film journalist Bill Desowitz chronicles the 50-year evolution of 007 on the big screen in James Bond Unmasked (Spies), featuring interviews with all six James Bond actors: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.
Available June 1st, this insightful book examines the world's most famous spy with commentary from the men who have played him. The effortless physicality of Sean Connery that launched a phenomenon and propelled the Scot to superstardom; the swaggering Austrailian George Lazenby, who put a human face on Bond; the fun absurdity of Roger Moore, who's had the longest reign; the Shakespearean-trained Timothy Dalton, who brought Bond back to reality; the neo-classical Pierce Brosnan, who was confronted with a changing world; and the post-modern Daniel Craig, who's come full circle back to the gritty humanity of Fleming.
What's it like being part of this League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? How is each Bond different yet the same? "An elegant orgy of all things Bond," asserts William Joyce (director of the Oscar-winning animated short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore) in his advance praise. "As essential, cool, and satisfying as one of Mr. Bond's martinis."
