For the first time, Bonds past and present will team up — not to quash the world domination plans of an evil villain in a volcano lair, but to raise money for an established British charity.
Former 007 Sir Roger Moore is joining current Bond Daniel Craig in a filmed sketch to air on today’s Comic Relief telethon in the U.K., which raises money to fight poverty in Britain.
The plot of the sketch is being kept under tight wraps, but BBC News reports that the pair will appear together in a special short film that also features Skyfall director Sam Mendes and actors Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear.
Other highlights expected from today’s telecast include Rowan Atkinson reprising his Mr. Bean character, David Walliams (as his thick-headed Little Britain character Lou) appearing with Stephen Hawking, and musical duet from Sam Smith and John Legend, who are slated to perform a duet of Smith’s “Lay Me Down.”;
