A little something I came across a couple of days ago, though truth be told I don’t remember what led me there. Anyway, get a load of this bit of James Bond trivia:
Fleming decided Bond should look a little like both the American singer Hoagy Carmichael and himself and in Casino Royale, Vesper Lynd remarks, “Bond reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless.” Likewise, in Moonraker, Special Branch Officer Gala Brand thinks that Bond is “certainly good-looking… Rather like Hoagy Carmichael in a way. That black hair falling down over the right eyebrow. Much the same bones. But there was something a bit cruel in the mouth, and the eyes were cold.” -wikipedia
I do enjoy the mans music, but I don’t see even a little secret agent in him.
