Peyton Stunned To Land Moore As Lazenby
Moviemaker BRAD PEYTON was stunned when former JAMES BOND ROGER MOORE agreed to add his voice to a suave cat in new family film CATS & DOGS: THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE - and had to keep pinching himself as he barked instructions at the British star.
The movie veteran plays Tab Lazenby in the film - a reference to another Bond, George Lazenby - and director Peyton is still surprised he landed such a big name.
He says, "We were lucky enough to get Roger Moore to do a cameo as the voice of Tab Lazenby, which I was freaked out over. It was weird directing him: 'Can you scream like a cat that's just been thrown across the room... a little higher?'
"It was really odd asking Sir Roger Moore to scream like a cat. I kind of cringed when I gave the direction: 'Is he gonna throw something at me?'
"I had no idea how he was gonna take it but he was really game. He didn't bat an eyelash and did ridiculous cat sounds."
