Roger Moore feted in France

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

As French Culture Minister Christine Albanel named British actor Roger Moore a commander in France's National Order of Arts and Letters in Paris yesterday, Moore claimed the award was worth "more than an Oscar."

Moore, 81, has never won the Oscar, nor has he ever been nominated for one. Best known for playing James Bond on the big screen in the '70s and '80s -- he played the role longer than any other actor -- Moore can add author to his resume. His memoir, My Word is My Bond (Collins, 336 pages, $27.95), is due out next week. (Look for the Sun-Times review in this weekend's Sunday Show section).
