For years, James Bond casting rumors have been a constant. It seems like every actor with a British accent and a striking visage has been whispered about as Daniel Craig’s eventual replacement, but what if the criteria was loosened up a bit, and producers entertained the notion of bringing an American actor aboard to play the iconic UK spy? Sacrilege? Perhaps, but the idea has apparently been floated before, and the names attached to those rumors are as shocking as they are intriguing… well, some of them, at least. In honor of what would have been author and Bond creator Ian Fleming’s 107th birthday, we present a list of actors who nearly put a little mesquite American flavor dust all up in the Bond franchise, and who likely would have made Fleming’s head spin.
