Actually the obvious one is Hugo Drax in Moonraker.
No cat, but a nice line in collarless jackets IIRC.
Hugo Drax. Elon Musk
First and last names have 4 letters each,
first name 2 vowels, last name 1
Both made money elsewhere before using it to develop missiles/rockets for the government
Will he follow the plot of the Moonraker novel or the film adaptation?
In the film, Drax's shuttles dock with a space station
Musk's Dragon craft docked with ISS
What's the progress on
Bond's Musk's submersible Lotus Esprit? - Time to get worried is when that's operational
