16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond
Ewan McGregor is another name you can add to the long list of actors who could have replaced Pierce Brosnan. He was hesitant to get involved in the project fearing typecasting and a long commitment with shooting and promotional tours. Given that he had just completed the Star Wars sequels, he had some idea of what could be involved. Interestingly, in 2015 the Scottish actor said it would be “quite cool” to do the role and is no longer worried about being typecast. For what it’s worth, there are petitions for him to be 007.
