- Sean Connery: The original and the standard by which all others are judged. He brought smoothness and suave wit to Fleming's literary creation, as well as keeping the wolfish sexuality that was present on the page.
- Roger Moore: Didn't like the predatory angle of Bond, adopted a more comedic bent. Which is fine, if one likes one's spy thrillers served with a side order of humor. Moore served adequately in most of his films and occasionally ascended to brilliance. His quirky take on our favorite superspy wasn't always bad, yet wasn't always good.
- George Lazenby: No one talks about him and there's a reason. His film is an orphan; On Her Majesty's Secret Service possesses a certain oddball charm but on the whole doesn't satisfy.
- Timothy Dalton: Too villainous. Bond's supposed to be the hero and Dalton largely forgets this. That and the films he was given...well, the premise is starting to show its age, let us just say that.
- Pierce Brosnan: Started with a bang, and began whimpering soon after. It isn't the actor's fault that his personal life fell apart soon after he accepted the role, not to mention the new Moral Guardians putting their greasy fingers on his character (Bond smokes! Deal with it assholes!). All the names with "Die" or "Death" in them seem prophetic to this Bond fan.
- Daniel Craig: Fuck the haters, "Casino Royale" was the series re-boot all fans were waiting for. From the opening notes of Chris Cornell's amazing theme to the ending credits, this is Bond as Fleming meant him to be; tough, savage, raw and witty. If Craig had been born with black hair, no one would have had a complaint.
