Tom Jones almost landed the role of James Bond


The Welsh singer has revealed how Cubby Broccoli - who produced the action film franchise - seriously considered casting him as the iconic British spy, but decided against it because he was too famous.

Tom told Smooth Radio: "When I was young I would have liked to be James Bond, and at one time it was discussed.

"I think it came from Cubby Broccoli, who was the man in charge, of course, and he said when my name was put forward, `Tom Jones is so recognisable as Tom Jones - he`s a character, he`s become this singer with a big character. So in order for him to do James Bond, would people accept him as being James Bond? Could they get past him being Tom Jones?` - and so apparently that was what the problem was."

The 70-year-old star did not specify exactly when he was considered for the role - which has been portrayed by movie stars including Sir Sean Connery, Sir Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and the latest spy Daniel Craig.

However, it is believed to have been during the late 60s or early 70s, shortly before Sean left the franchise.

In 1965, Tom recorded a track for the 1965 Bond movie `Thunderball`.
