Maggie was bigger in the UK when he started, and I do think a lot of his boost does indeed come from her. I've simply never liked him in anything I've seen him in.
I don't know that much about Jason Connery. Haven't seen him in anything!
I did come to post this though. I'm surprised it isn't already here. Craig rumored to have signed for FIVE more Bond pictures?
I like him and would like to see him step it up as Bond, but 8 total? And he's old now, and he looks old now. And please, Moore was looking like the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come by time he got to film seven.
I hope the rumor is wrong, maybe they mean 5 total. Wasn't it 3 with a 4th option. Maybe. I just can't seem him still being good and heavy and not old come 6, 7, 8. Oiy!
I think then he would turn into Maggie Smith
