David Hedison,but he is now 75.

The Wade character is an attempt at a cheap laugh and why would anybody want Falco back? I like Michael Madsen a lot in Tarantino movies and such, but he didn't add a thing to DAD. At least back in the Moore days, a recurring character like Gen. Gogol was okay to see repeated in films as he had qualities that made him welcome back. I don't feel the same way about Falco.
Felix may not have made as much of an impression in the films as he did in the novels, but he seems to be better liked in the fan community.

We should give him a cool gadget in his arm, too.
For a plot, how about his defeat of Sanchez has the CIA after him because Sanchez' drugs funded the Contras, and blah blah blah, but the point is that the CIA are after Leiter, and Bond helps Leiter on his mission. Falco could be a bad guy, sort of a traitor.

Hey, no problem at all! The more people that request it and throw the topic out in the arena, the more of a chance that EON might take a hint!
As long as you're feeling up to it, Mr. Leiter. We bid your return!

Personally, I liked Rik van Nutter the best. He could kill you with his hardcore stare.

Ther tried this for "NSNA' . Made Felix Leiter black . And Gardner introduced his daughter Ceder Leiter in "For Special Services" . A lot of this has too do with how the CIA was in disfavor over the last few years . The was a article during DAD's run . Which posed the question about why not use Felix Leiter . It was in the New York Times. Noverber 17. 2002 Cultural Studies : Holmes had Watson . Why Bond can't keep Leiter.

Should a woman play Leiter? After all if he could change his skin colour the character could change sex...

EON does not need or want a character like Felix Leiter . He is the one person who appears in several novels( "CR" , "LALD" , "GF" ,"TB ,"TMWTGG") .Felix Leiter was Fleming most colorful friend for Bond . In the film there is no need for Bond to have a friend or seek assistance . Plus the characrter is underwritten anbd poorly casted .

I can't understand why Leiter never returned in films after LTK. He returned in many novels after LALD. I hope they can put him in Bond 21 somehow. Although I don't have a clue who would play him.
