Over the weekend, former 007 star Roger Moore suggested that depicting Bond as anything other than a heterosexual male would not be “true to the character” that Bond author Ian Fleming originally wrote.

But yeah, I don’t see why not. [But] you have to think about those things based on the nucleus of a very sound idea, and not just be cavalier about those things.”
