British actor Timothy Dalton took over the role from Roger Moore in 1987's "The Living Daylights" and 1989's "License to Kill." Dalton played his Bond as a reluctant agent, closer to Fleming's character in the novels. While critics lauded his more serious, gritty approach compared to Moore's lighthearted playboy, Dalton was also criticized for taking the fun out of the series. He would distance himself from Bond by taking a variety of film, stage and TV roles, including playing Rhett Butler in the miniseries "Scarlett" and Mr. Pricklepants in "Toy Story 3."
