16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond
Dick van Dyke
This is a surprising one. When Sean Connery wanted to break away from Bond after You Only Live Twice, Dick van Dyke‘s name came up. Yes, he of Mary Poppins, The Dick van Dyke Show and Diagnosis: Murder. It was 1967 and Dick has later claimed he was “offered” the part, despite the American actor revealing that Cubby Broccoli said, “Oh, that’s right — forget it!” after Dick brought up his “cockney” accent in Mary Poppins.
