16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond

Burt Reynolds


Many would likely have been in favor of Burt Reynolds and his mustache joining the Bond franchise. The actor was considered to fill the role after George Lazenby parted ways with the franchise, but Burt actually turned it down because he felt James Bond must be British and he was American. He later admitted he regretted the decision. “I think I could have done it well,” he reflected in 2015 to the Guardian. “In my stupidity, I said, ‘An American can’t play James Bond, it has to be an Englishman — Bond, James Bond. Nah, I can’t do it.’ Oops. Yeah, I could have done it.”
