I have to agree. Be nice to see all of them together, but Sean seems to have put his days of Bondage well behind him. Moore relishes his memories and Dalton seems game as well as George Lazenby. However Sean just as soon pretend it never happened. A shame.
It would be interesting to see some of the women: Honor Blackman, Diana Rigg, Famke Janssen to name a few.
The others that wore the crown and carried the torch on, deserve all the adulation the fans can give. We all have our favourite....If the new film is a runaway success, then maybe Craige will take the lead as best Bond.
I completely agree. If it hadn't been for his tenure as Bond he might have just ended up as a television actor or something. Bond was his breakout role and he owes EON for taking a chance on him. And you'd think with all the money Connery made during the 90s he'd learn to leave it in the past. It was Cubby and Saltzman that he had an issue with not the current producers.
Providing his health is good I'm sure he'll show up.
That's right. Those two had a heated war of words. Brosnan was insulting Lazenby's acting ability, because Brosnan is just so diverse in his roles and has such range :)). I'd to see the two of them acknowledge this. They're by far my 2 least favorite Bond actors.
On the other hand Connery and Moore are the best of friends. I'd love to see the two of them together.
He may have a point about his weedy build but he forgot Cubby "looked up" in 1981.
Sean is the only doubtful one for me. He might put it down to 'health'.
Lazenby will be a definite. He doesn't shy away from being associated with Bond. Still enjoys the attention from it and attends many Bond-related autograph/q&a events. I think his autobiography is out either late this year/early next year too.
If Moore's ticker's still beating, he's a cert.
Dalton even attended the John Barry memorial concert I went to last year and has been to several of the Bond movie premieres in the past. He'll be there.
If others are showing up, I even think Pierce will be there. I think it would reflect badly on him if he didn't attend. This isn't an event for Babs and Michael, its for Bond fans around the world, celebrating Bond's legacy. Many my age genuinely regard him as their favourite. He'll be there.
And obviously Craig...
Is was Brosnan who insulted him first. During the Goldeneye press conference when Brosnan was asked about the responsibilities of the role he said "Nobody wants to be the next Lazenby". He then stated he would've loved to remake OHMSS as with Lazenby in the role it was a missed opportunity. He was simply being a jerk and Lazenby took offense to it and pointed out Brosnan's effeminate nature. Keep in mind Lazenby was a black belt trained by Bruce Lee and legit tough guy.
And yes Cubby did look up and notice someone during the 80s and his name was Timothy Dalton. Cubby was never too crazy about Brosnan, it was Michael Wilson and United Artists that really had to sell him on Cubby not once but twice.
I know I bash Brosnan alot and Im sorry if I sound like a broken record but based on interviews of all 6 actors he easily seems the most arrogant and puts more stock in his abilities than anyone else.
I know he did. I was there too :) :) But he wasn't at the Ian Fleming centenery celebrations in 2008. He did provide a quote in the programme though.
Not even because it's 'Bond related'-- but rather because he already retired from public appearances. That's that. :(
The one I'd bet on *not* showing up would be Brosnan. If it was further along I could see him doing it but with so much focus on the man who followed him (and how much more serious the films are - even "prestigious" in the case of SF) I think he'd feel a little...neglected. I think that it depends on how he feels his career is going - if he feels it's going really well he might attend but if he feels it isn't than the event would make him appear even more as "yesterday's man" whose best days are behind him.
As for Lazenby/Brosnan they appeared together at the 40th, didn't they?
However, if they all show up at Connery's place, this may be a different story.
he also, of course, provided his voice and likeness for the awful FRWL game a few years ago - it's fair to say his grumpiness of the series has softened as he's got older...
all the others are a total given...
i just wonder if brosnan turns out to be party pooper - with the way he was ejected for Craig..
I also think Lazenby and Dalton will show - and Craig is obvious..
honestly, I could put more stock in Connery showing up before Brosnan - only because of timing.
I think as Connery is now older, his grudges and gripes have softened, and for a prestigious occasion, such as the 50th Anniversary of Bond - it's just a tad more important than a 40 year Anniversary.. so health permitting, I think he'll be there... with EON/MGM and whoever else probably having to agree to give a percentage of cash to his charity..
I think it's too soon for Brozzers... he still seems bitter about the whole situation regarding his dismissal from the role.. so he would be the one I could see less likely to attend - Connery a close second.
If Bond was real, I guess he wouldn't like of what Sean and Pierce were doing.
