Daniel Craig, The Harriet Miers of the British Secret Service?

A website urges boycotting Casino Royale.

It argues that he'd be better suited playing Carl Spackler in a Caddyshack prequel, or perhaps Gilligan.

Roger Moore, meanwhile, says give the guy a chance.

Then again, Roger Moore can't run.

It's true. He was asked to run in a scene in one of his early Bond film, maybe Live and Let Die, and he told the director, "Look, I just can't run."

"You can't run? You mean you're injured?"

"No," Moore said (and I'm paraphrasing here). "I mean I just can't run."

"Well just try it," the director said.

Moore ran. Sort of. He looked like an ungainly female duck as he "ran." He looked dorkier running than Steven Segal in Above the Law.

The director now agreed, laughing. "Roger, you really can't run. You look ridiculous." And so Roger Moore never really ran in a Bond movie. He might walk quickly, but he doesn't run. Because he looks like a gaywad doing so.

Kind of a strange limitation for an action-movie star. Licensed to kill, but can't manage anything quicker than brisk walking.

So, yeah, I like Roger Moore, but I'm not sure he's the best judge of a good Bond.

Thanks to Frank for the tip.
