MOORE, Roger

mooreWe’ll pause for thirty seconds here to get the words ‘eyebrow’ and ‘creaky’ out of the way. Say what you like about his acting style (and at his worst it is strongly reminiscent of someone hazily trying to construct an alibi for themselves from badly-mimed hints given by someone at the far end of the room), but it’s hardly hindered the career of the superannuated towel thief. And he’s a tad sharper in the ‘laughing at himself’ stakes than Old Sean, too.

    That scene in The Wild Geese where he makes a drug dealer sample his own wares is very far from his 007 persona.

    Oh yes, Alan Ladd’s kid David, where he has to chow down on piles and piles of snowy white coke, to the sound of bad disco. Ah, when British action films genuinely were good, and Danny Dyer was still pissing in nappies…

    Or North Sea Hijack, an action film where he plays some kind of retired soldier who has a private army and likes cats and drinking whisky from the bottle. Not up there with Sean’s best efforts, but between Bonds, Roger made some reasonable fikms
