9 Famous Actors Who Turned Down The Part Of James Bond
8. Ewan McGregor
Ewan McGregor is another actor who refused the part for fear of being typecast, but has since changed his mind saying: "I think it would be quite cool to play James Bond. At this stage in my career [being typecast] is not really an issue anymore. Early on, when you start off you don't want your horizons to be narrow. But I think people know I have some kind of width in my work, so I'm really not worried about that anymore."
