Roger Moore Admits That Sean Connery Was Better James Bond

Sir Roger Moore tells the Scottish newspaper the Herald that Scottish son Sir Sean Connery offered the better film portrayal of Ian Fleming iconic character James Bond. (Ian Fleming was also a Scot, although he was raised in London).

James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore has described Sir Sean Connery as "the best warm-up act in the business".
Sir Roger, 85, who stepped into the role made famous by Edinburgh's greatest son in 1971, also confirmed what every Scot already knows – that Sir Sean was the better Bond.

Note: I agree that Connery was the better Bond, but perhaps if Moore had played Bond less for laughs and was a bit tougher - like he was in the TV series The Saint - he would rank a bit higher in the eyes of Fleming/Bond aficionados. Still, Sir Roger Moore is an amusing, likable, intelligent man. He is also a fine writer, having written Bond On Bond and other books about his life and his films and TV shows.
