All roads lead to 007.

Some people are destined for greatness. But Roger Moore was destined for far more. As it turns out, Moore actually made his first on-screen appearance as James Bond in a BBC comedy sketch ten years before succeeding Sean Connery in his Live and Let Die (1973) debut. And over-the-top campiness aside, there's no denying it... the role fits like a damn glove. 

Moore would go on to portray the MI6 intelligence officer for six more films across twelve years, going down in history as the longest-serving Bond actor:

  • The Man with the Golden Gun
  • The Spy Who Loved Me
  • Moonraker
  • For Your Eyes Only
  • Octopussy
  • A View to a Kill
