16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond
English actor Dominic West is another one who could have been Bond. He auditioned in 2005 which is when Daniel Craig was the eventual replacement. There are reports that he heard Pierce Brosnan was returning to the role so he stepped back. In a 2005 interview he claimed he wasn’t “bothered” about the audition and actually said he found the franchise “cheesy” before Daniel came. He apparently showed up to his audition in an old T-shirt and jeans. But, in a 2016 interview he revealed he’d “love to be James Bond” but thought he was probably too old. Hmmmm.
