Felix Leiter - Jack Lord

Leiter is the CIA agent assigned to Jamaica to work with James Bond to investigate the activities of Dr. No. As in the novels, Bond and Leiter would go on to share numerous missions. Curiously, the producers of the films had the character played by a diverse group of actors over the years, with mixed results. Jack Lord's performance in 'Dr. No' is one of the most satisfying portrayals of Leiter. He is a soft-spoken, no-nonsense man of few words who exudes a cool but friendly demeanor. As in most of the films, Leiter plays only a peripheral role in the action, although he does show up in the finale to rescue Bond and Honey after their escape from Dr. No's lair. Lord would go onto fame and fortune as the star of 'Hawaii Five-O'.
