Cork. John Cork.: One of the local brains behind Bond attends 'Skyfall' premiere

"Sean Connery set the mold. Connery had a wonderful sense of calm about him as Bond. He was like a coiled snake, but ready to strike. And he was incredibly attractive to women, which could be intimidating," he said. "However, I enjoy certain traits about all of them."

Even though Connery is Cork's standout choice, he said Daniel Craig comes in a close second.

At the premiere Oct. 23, Cork and his son walked the red carpet along with the Prince of Wales.

"No one throws a more lavish premiere," he said. "Everyone is in a good mood and it's done with a flourish. It was a very nice entrance and there was an amazing party afterwards — the food, the light show was all great. And there is no better way to experience it than through the eyes of a 13-year-old boy."

Cork, who spoke on Bond at Rosemary Beach in July. said "Skyfall" is tremendously different from the other Bond thrillers.

"It changes in a number of areas, expectations, and is more emotionally intimate, which is remarkably different. All the other elements are there with action and beautiful women. I highly recommend it. It may be the best ever.”
