16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond
There are a lot of intriguing options on the list, but Clint Eastwood as James Bond might be the one that has people wondering “what if” the most. Similar to Burt Reynolds, Clint was approached in the ’70s and also felt very strongly that Bond must remain British. The legendary actor talked about being the one to follow Sean Connery. “I was offered pretty good money to do James Bond if I would take on the role,” he stated in 2010. “But to me, well, that was somebody else’s gig. That’s Sean’s deal. It didn’t feel right for me to be doing it.” FYI: He also rejected the role of Superman.
