16 Actors Who Could Have Been James Bond
Michael Gambon was in the running to be Bond along with George Lazenby in the Seventies. But, he didn’t think he was right for the role. In an interview with the Telegraph, he recalled the meeting with James Bond producer Albert R. “Cubby” Broccoli . “I said I didn’t want the part because I’m not like [Bond]. I haven’t got nice hair and I’m a bit fat.” Cubby’s response? “Well, the present James Bond doesn’t have any hair … it’s a wig.” Michael still didn’t get the part, but he did go on to play icons like Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter and Winston Churchill in Churchill’s Secret.
