Footballers WivesKing Bond fansite Commander Bond has managed to put together a list of 14 almost-Bonds, all of whose names they've confirmed through various sources (some surely known only to the Bondiest of Bond fans). Some read for the part, some got as far as wardrobe tests and "really impressed" producers, while others reside in murky "nothing more is know" territory. The list includes people we knew about, like Julian McMahon and fan favorite Gerard Butler, but it also offers some surprises, among them deliciously sleazy FootballerChristian Solimeno.

Additionally, Commander Bond reports that Clive Owen, Cinematical's most beloved rumor, was both "too old" and "never approached" for the part. Please. Everyone knows that Clive is perfect.
