They tried replacing Sean Connery once and failed. But with Connery’s determination to move his career beyond Bond, United Artists had to once again recast the British spy. With the adaptation of Ian Fleming’s second James Bond novel, Live and Let Die, English actor Roger Moore stepped into the tuxedo. Moore was already familiar with playing a spy, having played Simon Templar on television’s The Saint for eight years, and Moore continued that success becoming the longest-serving James Bond actor, holding the role for twelve years.
