Jack Wade is a fictional character in Pierce Brosnan's first two James Bond films: GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies. Wade, played by Joe Don Baker, is 007's CIA contact, presumably taking over the role of Felix Leiter after the events in the 1989 film Licence to Kill.

Biography

Baker plays Wade very close to the Ugly American stereotype, acting as a memorable and effective foil to the ultra-suave Bond. However, this should not imply that Wade is any less effective than his predecessor, Leiter. So far Wade has been just as helpful — and just as willing to bend the rules — as Bond's original contact was.

In GoldenEye, Bond and Wade initially didn't get along, as Wade had no patience for the cloak-and-dagger codes and passwords that "stiff-assed Brits" like Bond relied on. They quickly grew to like each other, however, as they shared a disdain for rules and official etiquette. Through his access to CIA intelligence and Marine forces, Wade helped Bond foil Alec Trevelyan's plan to rob the British government of millions. Wade tends to give nicknames to Bond, including "Jimmy" and "Jimbo." He also has a tattoo of a rose from his third marriage that says "Muffy."

At the end of Goldeneye, he revealed that he had several squads of Marines as well as three attack helicopters standing by as "backup" for Bond.

Wade was present in Tomorrow Never Dies. Wade meets up with James Bond again when 007 gives back an US Navy Global Positioning device back to a US Navy GPS expert. Wade helps 007 orchestrate a HALO jumpout of a US Army plane. Wade is muttering to himself as 007 is falling out of plane that he would have to testify in a United States Congress or United States Senate intelligence committees hearings.

Wade was not present in The World Is Not Enough or Die Another Day. In Die Another Day, however, there were two NSA agents, Giacinta 'Jinx' Johnson (played by Halle Berry), and Damian Falco (played by Michael Madsen). He is also "heard" in GoldenEye 007 in the Water Caverns level via radio.

Casting

Baker had previously played a villain, Brad Whitaker, in the first Timothy Dalton Bond film, The Living Daylights. This casting parallels that of Charles Gray, who first played Bond's contact, Henderson, in You Only Live Twice and later Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Diamonds Are Forever.

The character of Wade is similar to that of CIA agent Darius Jedburgh, played by Baker in the 1985 BBC Television serial Edge of Darkness. The serial was also directed by Martin Campbell, who cast Baker as Wade in GoldenEye.

Natalya Simonova

Natalya Fyodorovna Simonova
Character from the James Bond franchise
Affiliation Russian second class computer programmer
Portrayed by Izabella Scorupco

Natalya Fyodorovna Simonova (Russian: Наталья Фёдоровна Семёнова) is a fictional character in the James Bond film GoldenEye, played by Polish-Swedish actress Izabella Scorupco.

Natalya first appeared in Goldeneye in the Severnaya bunker, where General Ouromov killed everyone except her. Natalya says that she was accused of betraying her home, which was untrue; it was in fact Ouromov who betrayed Russia. Later on, when James Bond and Natalya were on their way to the Cuban jungle, Jack Wade gave Natalya some basic firearms training. Natalya also was able to locate the Janus base while on Alec Trevelyan's armored missile train by tracking down the data trail left by computer hacker Boris Grishenko. Natalya, while proteced by Bond, was able to prevent the Goldeneye weapon from firing on London, and even changed the password so Boris could not hack the system. After defeating Trevelyan and foiling his plot, Bond and Natalya are lying in a field of tobacco plants kissing, as Jack Wade and the U.S. Marines arrive to make sure Natalya and Bond had survived. The ending shows the troops, Wade, Bond, and Natalya being taken away in three helicopters.

Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky

Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky
Character from the James Bond franchise
Affiliation KGB/Russian Mafia
Portrayed by Robbie Coltrane

Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky (Russian: Валентин Дмитриевич Жуковский) is a fictional character in two of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond films: GoldenEye and The World Is Not Enough.

Biography

Zukovsky, played by Robbie Coltrane, is an ex-KGB agent turned Russian mafia head who runs a bar, a casino, and a caviar factory. When he was younger (and a KGB agent), a conflict with James Bond ended with Valentin being shot in the leg, as well as Bond stealing his car and "his girl". Eventually, Valentin set up a meeting for Bond with Janus, in St. Petersburg, Russia.

After leaving the KGB, Valentin Zukovsky initially held a grudge against James Bond, but this disappeared when dealing with Bond could make him a profit. He later made a fortune out of a beluga caviar factory. He is consistent, throughout both films, in ironically addressing Bond as "Bond, James Bond."

In The World Is Not Enough, his personal assistant and driver named Bullion debuts. Later, after Bullion was revealed to have worked with Elektra King, and set off a bomb in Valentin's radio facility and former KGB safe house in Istanbul, Turkey (which he uses to try to contact his nephew Nikolai, whom is running a Victor 3 class submarine), Valentin shoots Bullion. Valentin Zukovsky makes many appearances in the films, before being shot and mortally wounded by Elektra King in The World Is Not Enough. Valentin tells Elektra King to give him the officer's hat of his nephew Nikolai by saying "I'm looking for a submarine, it's big, black, and the driver is a very good friend of mine! Bring it to me!", but instead, she shoots Valentin through the hat. He lives long enough after being shot to execute a trick shot using a secret gun hidden within his own cane that allows James Bond to escape Elektra King's trap.

There was a deleted scene in which Bond later checks Valentin's pulse. Another scene cut out from the movie, is when Dr. Warmflash takes Valentin in and finds out he was shot in the ribs, and she eventually gets the bullet out. It is unknown if he actually lived or died.

Dimitri Mishkin

Dimitri Mishkin
Character from the James Bond franchise
Affiliation Defence Minister of Russia
Portrayed by Tchéky Karyo

Biography

When Bond and Severnaya survivor Natalya Simonova are captured at St. Petersburg after the helicopter exploded, Defence Minister Dimitri Mishkin interrogates them both in the Russian Military Archives, believing that they were responsible for the incident in Severnaya. During the interrogation, however, Dimitri Mishkin had learned from the information said by Natalya that it was General Ourumov who massacred the programmers and fired the GoldenEye satellite. Then, General Ourumov storms into the room, demanding access to the prisoners. Minister Mishkin confronts Ourumov with the allegations "From what I am hearing it is you who is out of order", and Ourumov shoots a guard and Mishkin in the head with Bond's PPK in an attempt to frame Bond for the murders. Strangely his murder is not featured in the game, however it is possible for him to be killed after he hands Bond the key to the safe which contains the black box proving Alec Trevelyan's involvement in the theft of the GoldenEye satellite, from being killed by the player or accidentally killed from an explosion caused by a guard (which could be from a stray bullet accidentally blowing up the boxes around Mishkin, or a grenade explosion).

She is in only one scene of the movie when Bond and Zukovsky are making a deal in Zukovky's bar. In that scene she is on stage dressed as a cowgirl and singing Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man". She sings off-key and in a heavy Russian accent, causing Bond to ask "Who's strangling a cat?". After Zukovsky angrily informs Bond that Irina is his mistress, Bond amends his opinion, describing her as a "very talented girl." Upon hearing this, Zukovsky tells Irina to "Take a hike," as she and her back-up singers angrily storm off the stage.
