The comedy web site funnyordie.com has been having fun reimagining British secret agent James Bond as a nonviolent, mild-mannered polite Jewish mensch.
They created a funny skit based on a CNN interview of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein by reporter Piers Morgan. In the interview, Weinstein considers choosing to make films that are less violent.
The parodists take it from there, with James Bond (acted by Phil Rosenthal, creator of Everybody Loves Raymond) showing his nice guy persona to a Bond girl and to comedian Patton Oswalt in the role of Bond's nemesis, the evil genius plotting to control the world.
