Roger Moore, who starred seven times as James Bond, says “The English press has been ridiculously unkind” to the new James Bond, Daniel Craig. “And he hasn’t even started to play the role!”

Moore added. “I saw him in ‘Road to Perdition’ and thought he was very good — he’s a good actor.” Reminiscing over his Bond-age, Moore choses “The Spy Who Loved Me” as his favorite. “But I loved them all.” And he even suggested to the producers that he do another — as a heavy. But he now allows it would not have been a good idea.

Moore was in London for Friday night’s UNICEF fund-raiser at the Park Lane Hotel. He then wings to N.Y. for next week’s U.N. 60th anni doings and program on the world’s HIV-AIDS problem. Moore has been UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambasador for 15 years.

He celebrated his 78th birthday (Oct.14) at dinner Wednesday with the Michael Caines, Joan Collins, Michael Winner. (Winner wings 15 couples, including Roger and wife Kristina to Venice for his birthday celebration Saturday).

Moore’s next trek for UNICEF is to India, Nov.13. In the past year, he’s made appearances for UNICEF in Stockholm, Helsinki, Athens and Dubrovnik. Because of his many global appearances, Moore says he hasn’t made any film commitments — however, he’s now interested in one project for filming in 2006. No, not in the new Bond movie.
