Colin Farrell could have been... James Bond (Casino Royale)
The Part: Colin Farrell was the leftfield choice for the new Bond back in 2004, with the Irish actor under serious consideration before Daniel Craig finally snagged the role. How They Would’ve Played It: Farrell could do the hard-drinking, womanising bit in his sleep, while he’s also no slouch in the action department. It certainly would have been interesting. Why We're Glad They Didn't Get It: Farrell is a bit rough and ready for Bond, even in his new harder-edged incarnation. Too many tattoos for one thing. And then there’s the fact that Craig has been excellent throughout.
