Coolest Actors to Play James Bond


The Top Ten

1 Sean Connery Sean Connery Sir Thomas Sean Connery is a retired Scottish actor and producer who has won an Academy Award, two BAFTA Awards and three Golden Globes.

The definition of sexy, sophisticated, suave... & the list goes on!

Smooth Operator!

When it comes to cool, nobody can beat Sean Connery. Whether he's taking on a villain or dissing the Beatles (which EON essentially apologized for by naming the Quantum of Solace girl Strawberry Fields), he delivers every line with the same suave attitude. - PetSounds

2 Daniel Craig Daniel Craig Daniel Wroughton Craig is an English actor. Craig trained at the National Youth Theatre and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1991, before beginning his career on stage.

Craig's portrayal of James Bond is three-dimensional, but he manages to play him with (almost) as much cool as Connery. - PetSounds

3 Roger Moore Roger Moore Sir Roger George Moore KBE (1927-2017) was an English actor. Moore played the British secret agent James Bond in seven feature films such as Moonraker, The Spy Who Loved Me and Live and Let Die, between 1973 and 1985. Moore worked as a model and made several appearances in minor films and television more.

Indeed! - Kevinsidis

Roger Moore has it all. Looks, charm, humor and energy. Roger Moore has the best movies out of all the Bonds - beatles5

So charming. Oozes sex appeal and the way he speaks... Beautiful. The ultimate James Bond. - Britgirl

Sure, it's cheesy, but who can beat Roger's eyebrow? - PetSounds

4 Pierce Brosnan Pierce Brosnan Pierce Brendan Brosnan is an Irish actor and film producer who after leaving comprehensive school at age 16, began training in commercial illustration.

My vote is definitely for Pierce who in my very humble opinion is the modern day Sean Connery. - Szonana

PB is my favourite Bond actor. He has a certain charisma to even the most serious as well as the most comical of his scenes. I love that. - PositronWildhawk

5 Timothy Dalton Timothy Dalton Timothy Peter Dalton is an English actor. He is known for portraying James Bond in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill, as well as Rhett Butler in the television miniseries Scarlett.

Timothy dalton was the most convincing bond the most real bond from the books in my opinion

6 George Lazenby George Lazenby George Robert Lazenby is an Australian actor and former model, best known for portraying James Bond in the 1969 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service when he was 29 years old, being the youngest actor to date to have portrayed the character.
