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.

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.

James Bond might be able to charm his way out of any tight squeeze, but onetime 007 star Sean Connery appears to be headed for court.
