Dolph comments on Roger Moore's passing on Swedish website Expressen

Dolph Lundgren admired his work
Actor Dolph Lundgren, 59, had a role in the Bond film "A View To A Kill" from 1985.
"Roger Moore was a great man. I met him on my first movie set 'Live Target.' Smoking a cigar at lunch at Pinewood Studios he used to look over at my table and remark: 'Dolph is bigger than Denmark' He writes in a statement.

Dolph Lundgren tells that they both kept in touch and were invited to Roger Moore's 80th anniversary.
"I have always been an admirer of his hard work of charity, his elegant style, classical humor and positive attitude to life. He will be missing from many around the world," he writes.

Roger Moore Remembered by Grace Jones: "A Great Gentleman and a Great Father"
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/r ... er-1008572

(and the whole "larger than Denmark" story/joke by Moore which is even better than how Dolph tells it)
"He will always remain one of my best experiences in my filming career," Jones says of her 'A View to a Kill' co-star, who died May 23 at age 89.

"We had an unusually long relationship by Hollywood standards that was filled with jokes and laughter," said Sean Connery about the loss of his 007 successor, Roger Moore, who died May 23 at 89 after a brief battle with cancer. "I will miss him." Indeed, it seemed all who came into contact with Moore were charmed by his wit and touched by his decency. Among his admirers was Grace Jones, who played henchwoman May Day in the 1986 James Bond film A View to a Kill. The 69-year-old singer, supermodel, actress, author and all-around icon spoke exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter from her home in Jamaica about her memories of working with the late, great Sir Roger.

How did you meet Roger?

It was at a lunch at Pinewood Studios [in London] with his wife just before filming of the Bond film started. I was told that his wife [Luisa Mattioli] always wanted to meet the actresses that he was going to have a love scene with. Then Dolph Lundgren, my lover at the time, walked in, and Luisa said, "I don't have to worry about her." And Roger said, "He is as big as Denmark." And we all laughed.

What was your rapport like?

He was very funny — always telling jokes and always making me laugh. His humor was quite attractive, but my character, May Day, was to hate him, so I had to stay in character after I read the script!

You were an evil henchwoman in the film and a formidable fighter, like all the Bond villains. How physical were your fight scenes?

I didn't have any fight scenes with Roger in the film, but my fight scenes with other characters were very physical. I had to be at the best shape. He and I did have a love scene, though, and that was more physical.

What did Roger bring to the Bond role?

His humor, his charm, his experience and not taking it so seriously. Roger will stay in my memory forever as a great gentleman and great father. He will always remain one of my best experiences in my filming career. During the shoot we were like a big family, spending all our time over a year together. He will be missed. One of a kind.

In 2004 at Billy Zane's birthday party I think, maybe more recently... They seem pretty cool and friendly, no grudge or anything if that's what you mean.

Grace Jones Documentary Added to BBC Films Slate
By Phil Gallo

BBC Films is backing a documentary on Grace Jones.

The film arm of the British Broadcasting Co., which announced its 25th anniversary projects on March 25, has commissioned Sophie Fiennes to direct Grace Jones -- The Musical Of My Life. Fiennes' film, being co-financed by BFI Film Fund and the Irish Film Board, has been in the works for seven years. BFI chose to fund the film in June.

James Wilson and Katie Holly are co-producing the film, the first-ever on Jones. It has been described as "a cinematic journey into the private and public worlds of Grace Jones, mixing intimate personal footage with unique staged musical sequences."

A former model who became a new wave sensation in the 1980s with hits such as "Pull Up to the Bumper," "Slave to the Rhythm" and "Private Life," she has long been seen as a musical and fashion influence on scores of female singers. Jones stopped recording with 1989’s Bulletproof Heart, returning in 2008 with Hurricane. She contributed the track "Original Beast" to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack last year.

Jones, who will appear in Hyde Park in London on June 21 with Kylie Minogue.

A director and editor, Fiennes will make her music documentary debut with the Jones project. Her last full-length documentaries include The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology and Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow. Fiennes is the sister of actors Ralph and Joseph Fiennes.

The Grace Jones documentary will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and October 25th in UK Cinemas.

007 great underrated James Bond films
http://www.bfi.org.uk/news-opinion/news ... bond-films
A View to a Kill is, for many, the worst Bond, (although 2002’s Die Another Day rivals it in some fans’ eyes), and it’s certainly flawed. Roger Moore is too old for the role, it has a rubbish Bond girl, the script is messy and the scene where Bond seduces the female lead by baking her a quiche is just bizarre.

But it has many interesting things going for it, even if they’re not fully realised. The villains are great – Grace Jones is a cracking henchman (alas, she turns good at the end) and the most interesting woman ever to sleep with Bond, while Christopher Walken’s old-school evildoer is a blast. The set pieces are strong, such as Jones’ dive from the Eiffel Tower and the explosive finale. Duran Duran’s theme song is 80s camp at its most bombastic. And it’s the Bond swansong of both Roger Moore and the original Miss Moneypenny, Lois Maxwell.
