TheDailyBeast: Actors Who Almost Played James Bond

5 of 11

Sam Neill

Of all the actors who almost played Bond, Sam Neill may have actually been the closest. The "Jurassic Park" actor was the frontrunner to star in "The Living Daylights" after Pierce Brosnan couldn't get out of his commitment to "Remington Steele" to take on the part (Brosnan, of course, eventually played Bond in several films). Neill screen tested for the part, but eventually lost out to Timothy Dalton, who himself was considered for 007 when he was younger, but was passed over for looking too boyish.
