Fictional secret agent of Great Britain's SIS (also called MI6). 007. In the Ian Flemming novels, Bond first had a .25 calibre (!) Beretta as a gun, but M and Maj. Boothroyd made him switch it for the Walther PPK when he was nearly killed in action because the Beretta jammed. In the movies Bond uses the PPK exclusivly until he switches to another Walther, the P99 -- however, the scene where his Beretta is replaced by the PPK is preserved in the movie Dr. No. To date, 5 actors have played James Bond in film: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton (who portrayed a Bond closest to Flemming's original literary character), and Pierce Brosnan. The 6th to play Bond will be Daniel Craig. Craig will be the second Englishman to play Bond (the first was Roger Moore).
