Pierce Brosnan as Dalton, Roger Moore as Lazenby… what?

There have been at least two films where actors of Bond have played characters that have another Bond actor’s surname.

First Pierce Brosnan have a role of geologist Dr. Harry Dalton in 1997’s disaster movie “Dante’s Peak“. Dalton (Brosnan) is assigned by his boss, to investigate seismic activity near Dante’s Peak, a small town in Washington near a dormant stratovolcano. There, Harry meets Mayor Rachel Wando (Linda Hamilton). Daniel Craig‘s wife name in real life is also Rachel – Rachel Weisz.

Then Sir Roger Moore had the role of Tab Lazenby (who is actually a cat, so Sir Roger provided only his voice to this character). The movie is “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” (also a reference to Bond girl Pussy Galore). The film was made in 2010 and it is a sequel to “Cats & Dogs“, which was released in 2001.

Tab Lazenby is a head of M.E.O.W.S. (Mousers Enforcing Our World’s Safety). Lazenby’s (Moore’s) mission is to take down Kitty Galore, who is  a former M.E.O.W.S. agent named Ivana Clawyu who fell into a vat of hair removal gel in a cosmetics factory when a guard dog chased her while on a mission. Humiliated by her fellow agents, Kitty left M.E.O.W.S. and vowed revenge.

Some sort of reference can be found from the following character:

Timothy Dalton‘s role in “Marple” TV series episode “The Sittaford Mystery” (2008) is Clive Trevelyan. Any relation to Alec Trevelyan 006 (Sean Bean) in “GoldenEye” (1995)?
