JAMES BOND FAN? When I was a kid, I was nuts for James Bond. I didn't understand the goddamn books but I read them anyway. I didn't really know what he (Ian Fleming) was talking about half the time. But I collected them, I read them, and I used to have a little Aston-Martin. FAVORITE BOND Sean Connery could do no wrong. And I love Daniel Craig. He's terrific. He was a great way to breathe life into it, stop fooling around and get real again. I had a feeling the Bourne movies had a lot to do with that. I was working in England last year (when they were working on Skyfall) and I was working with one of the costumers on it and they were a little worried about it because they had a limited budget but they did great things with it. FAVORITE BOND GIRL I really liked Ursula Andress coming out of the water in Dr. No. FAVORITE BOND MOVIE And From Russia With Love, I really got a kick out of that. And Goldfinger.
