Neither shaken, nor stirred. Just perennially cool.
While he'll no doubt be best remembered for the seven James Bond films he made from 1973 to 1985, Sir Roger Moore – he was knighted in 2003, for his humanitarian work on behalf of UNICEF – also wears many other labels proudly.
He was a young MGM star (opposite the then-equally young Elizabeth Taylor), a TV star and producer (The Saint), an author twice over (a 2008 autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the brand-new Bond on Bond: Reflections on 50 Years of James Bond Movies), and a word-class raconteur.
It was in those last two capacities that the London-born Sir Roger, a hale and hearty 85, spent time with PEOPLE in New York this week. Among the many opinions he shared were those on a certain movie franchise.

This version is stirred, not shaken. But no matter the method the perfect James Bond martini is easy to make, says Leo Robitschek, beverage director of the New York hotspot The NoMad Hotel.
With the latest Bond film, Skyfall – the 23rd title in the film series – set for release on Nov. 9, mixologist Robitschek shares his own version of the spy hero's famed vesper martini.
The drink was defined by author Ian Fleming in his first Bond book, 1953's Casino Royale. The debonair Bond, wrote Fleming, orders a very specific cocktail: three parts gin, one part vodka and one-half part Lillet Blanc, a French aperitif wine.

As the new Bond girl, Bérénice Marlohe couldn't feel luckier – except for one thing.
"Well, I missed Daniel Craig naked, unfortunately," she tells November's issue of Maxim about conflicting shooting schedules on the latest 007 caper, Skyfall, opening Nov. 9.
While she didn't get to see the handsome hunk who plays James Bond in the buff, the sultry French actress, 33, does reveal about the movie: "It's a terrific script. And I think they've never had such a great cast, like Ralph Fiennes, Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench ... and Bérénice Marlohe."

James Bond is back, hunky, handsome and shirtless as ever, and once again played by Daniel Craig, in his third outing as Agent 007.
Unveiled on Monday: the trailer for Bond's 23rd screen adventure, Skyfall, due in U.S. theaters Nov. 9, and costarring Javier Bardem and French actress Bérénice Marlohe as the new Bond Girl, named Severine.
In the brief film clip, Bond/Craig is shown against a variety of international locations, while a location posting states that the production is currently in Turkey. Scenes were recently shot in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, where nearly half a century ago Sean Connery's Bond first encountered Turkish ally Kerim Bey (Pedro Armendériz) and blonde Bond Girl Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi), for the classic From Russia, with Love.

Look out, Daniel Craig – there may be a new 007 in town.
Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek is accustomed to performing death-defying feats with nothing but a board between him and the pavement, but this weekend he got behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Sonic to perform a nerve-wracking stunt taken straight out of a James Bond car chase.
On Saturday, Dyrdek, 37, buckled up and put the pedal to the metal in order to replicate the "kickflip," which involved spiraling the vehicle in mid-air as it sailed between two ramps.

Just as the new Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe was revealed, the franchise's latest Miss Moneypenny was announced as well.
Naomie Harris, 35, will play Eve, a field agent, the actress confirmed at a London press conference for the franchise's latest film, Skyfall.
The upcoming movie is the James Bond franchise's 23rd installment.
"I've been doing yoga three times a week, stunt driving and firing machine guns – which I discovered I had a real taste for," Harris, the first black actress to play this role, told reporters. "I'm raring to go!"

Daniel Craig will be back to shaking martinis soon.
The actor will reprise his role for the third time as British spy James Bond in the 23rd flick in the popular franchise, which is set for release on Nov. 9, 2012, according to reports. Production had been placed on hold while the parent studio, MGM, underwent new financing.

Quantum of Solace star Daniel Craig only has eyes for one Bond girl – his own.
At the world premiere of the new James Bond film, Craig strolled the red carpet Wednesday night in London with girlfriend, Satsuki Mitchell, who wore a Ralph Lauren Collection gown and eagerly told reporters that his favorite Bond girl was "the one on my arm."
"He was a bit spotlight shy and glued to his girlfriend," a source tells PEOPLE. "She straightened his tie a lot and whispered what seemed words of encouragement."
