Leiter. Felix Leitier. Human Chameleon.

April 22, 2011

I’ve started rewatching the James Bond films from the very beginning.

It seems it was very important back in the sixties for producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman to have a continuity in the cast for the key roles.

Sean Connery as James Bond 007, Bernard Lee as M, Lois Maxwell as Miss Moneypenny and Desmond Llewelyn as Q.

However, CIA agent Felix Leiter was apparently not that important.


Instead of recasting the previous actor portraying the role, it seems they lined up new ones and eeni, meeni, miini, moh’d their way to a new random actor.

Is that what happened to the Hulk reboot too?

    …and that is only 5 of the 8 that played the man! (So far.)

    When will we get a Felix Leitier spin off movie? I’d see that!
