    Rik Van Nutter WAS Felix Leiter.
    Just as Sean Connery WAS James Bond.
    Others merely played the parts, but Sean and Rik WERE who they were.

    As a SAG/AFTRA actor of over 30 years, I would love to play the part of a ‘retired’ Felix, but I would always Tip My Hat to Rik.

    Much Love Rik, May we act together on that great stage in the sky one day.
