Roger Moore will come to TV

The former Bond star is back in the action game

Posted on

Don’t want to wait until November for a fresh hit of James Bond in ”The World Is Not Enough”? Just flip on your TV set next month. Former 007 Roger Moore has just signed a deal to join the cast of the syndicated action drama ”The Dream Team.” Replacing Martin Sheen (who will now appear in NBC’s White House drama, ”West Wing”), Moore will star as the suave head of an elite team of intelligence agents out to rid the planet of criminal scumlords.

”We felt having someone like Roger would add a little style, class, and sophistication,” says ”Dream” executive producer Dean Hamilton. ”And we thought we could create some interesting story lines because of the Bond character he played for so many years. The first time we see him, he’s on a boat, and one of his lines is, ‘I told you, ‘Shaken — not stirred.”’ No word yet on a Sean Connery cameo.
