Apparently, I found the 'Lenny Rabin' cameo for the Craig films ;-)

Did you guys notice the long grey haired Asian guy during the poker game at/in 'Casino Royale'? He was in 'Skyfall' too! Hard to notice though :-). Makes me wonder...if the Bond producers have some kind of database on cameo appearances hehe.

    By the way, this is our great hero Lenny, in case you didn't know him ;-):

    And this is our new 'Lenny', Mr Tom So (who played Fukutu in 'Casino Royale' and who is back with a bang -1sec. only- in 'Skyfall' ;-):

    Really? Mr. Fukutu is one of my favourite super-secondary characters from the franchise, I'll like to see him back. And perhaps one day, just like Figwit in the LOTR trilogy, he might come back with an actual character ;) By the way, did you notice if he was credited?
  • I think it would be funny to have
    the old couple on the underground platform who witness Bond jumping onto the back of the train
    pop up again, in a subtle way, in the next film and co-incidentally witness him do some other crazy stunt. :-D

    Yeah, would be great. Don't you think showing these cameo's, if it's Michael Wilson, Tom So or Lenny Rabin, show's Barbara Broccoli's and Michael Wilson's own nerdiness about the biggest franchise :P. I mean, many said the producers are the biggest fans, but these cameo's are so funny, so...nerdy hehe.

    The fact that Barbara and Michael haven't forgotten about Tsai Chin and Diane Hartford is really....quite stunning, considering the big gaps these actresses had for their cameo.

    By the way, I found some other fun cameo's, actors who appeared more than once in a Bond film:

    --> Peter Porteous: In 'Octopussy' and 'The Living Daylights'

    This could be a great time to attempt to recreate that classic list from the old forum, of people who appear in more than one Bond film...

    Yes, but do you mean cameo's? Or real roles? Otherwise the list will be endless....

    Any person who appears in more than one film, no matter the size of the role.

    I don't know if you remember but @w7 kicked the list off and it was very big. It was just a great reference to have.

    Yes, I'm sure I've missed a few.
  • Great memory there! You missed the guy who played the corrupt TLD antagonist and later played Jack Wade; the CIA guy from Brosnan's era. And is the DAF Blofeld up there?

    Who's missing now?

    I need to find the name of the person playing an uncredited car driver in For Your Eyes Only and The Living Daylights.

    I knew exactly which driver you meant the moment I read it. He's played by Michel Julienne, son of car stunt coordinator Rémy Julienne.

    Another one to add to the list is Milton Reid, who was in DN and TSWLM.

    Ah, thanks! I didn't expect an answer at all, let alone so soon. The list is coming along nicely now.
  • I spotted Joe Don Baker in TND as well, I just watched it the other night. "Hey Jimbo!"
  • Victor Tourjansky: In 'The Spy Who Loved Me', 'Moonraker' and 'For Your Eyes Only'

    Kerim's lover from FRWL is also the sexy dancer Bond tries to make love with in the GF PTS before things...electrify.

    I like to think that Bond chose the mission location because he knew Kerim's lover was there, (where is the PTS of GF set?) and he went to offer condolences and consolation in his arms. :D

    So make the old couple the new JW Pepper in a way? Yeah I'd be up for that.
