16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond
Liam Neeson is known for being in a lot of action/suspense films. So, it made sense that he was “courted” to be 007 in the mid-1990s. In an interview with Men’s Journal, the actor from Northern Ireland confirmed he was being considered, but he turned it down on the advice of then-girlfriend Natasha Richardson. She said he was going to “ruin his career” doing Bond following Schindler’s List and she wouldn’t marry him if he did the role.
