And He Ought to Know

Found this: Lee Praises "Best Bond" Brosnan

Christopher Lee has hailed Irishman Pierce Brosnan as the best actor to ever play suave superspy James Bond. Lee, who played Bond villain Scaramanga in 1973 installment The Man With The Golden Gun and recently defended the casting of new 007 Daniel Craig, insists Brosnan depicted Bond exactly as author Ian Flaming intended. He says, "In my opinion - and I think I know as much, if not more about Bond than anyone, particularly about the characters on whom Ian told me Bond was based, Pierce Brosnan was by far the best and closest to the character."

Matt has been reading Christopher Lee's bio, and if anyone out there now can comment on Fleming's intentions for Bond, it's Lee. He knew the man.

And apparently, Ian Fleming wanted Lee to play the lead title character in Dr. No!
