Actors who almost played James Bond
There are certain things a James Bond movie must have: an amazing opening action sequence; a shaken-not-stirred-martini; Q's cool gadgets; a sexy femme fatale; and, of course, a handsome British guy in the role of top spy 007. These elements have been a part of the James Bond franchise (based on a series of novels by Ian Fleming) over the course of more than two dozen movies stretching back to 1962's Dr. No, all the way up through 2015's Spectre…and beyond. In that time, only a handful of actors have played the role in canonical Bond movies: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig. Which means there's a much larger group of actors who almost played James Bond.
