Legendary James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore has offered to replace Daniel Craig in the new movie 'Spectre', after he injured himself on set
Sir Roger Moore has offered to replace Daniel Craig in the new James Bond movie 'Spectre'.
Craig - who currently plays the iconic secret agent - recently sprained his knee while shooting a fight scene for the 'Skyfall' sequel at Pinewood studios in Buckinghamshire and Sir Roger, 87, has offered to step into the breach.
He joked: "Sorry to hear Daniel Craig has sprained his knee on set #Spectre. Being 007 is not without its hazards. I'm available to step in if needed. (sic)"
Sir Roger starred as James Bond in the films between 1973 and 1985.
However, in a recent interview, Sir Roger said Sean Connery and Daniel Craig - as well as the much-maligned George Lazenby, who starred in 1969's 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' - were all superior to him in the role.
He reflected: "I believe [Daniel Craig is] an excellent Bond.
"He's much stronger than I am. I think he does a hell of a good job of it. He and Sean are, I think, undoubtedly the best Bonds."
Asked where he sits in the hierarchy of Bond actors, Sir Roger said: "I think a little bit behind George Lazenby, I suppose."
