Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman test over 200 actors before settling on Sean Connery, a then unknown, for the role of James Bond. Apparently women told Harry he had IT, but Saltzman reckoned it was the way he walked, almost cat-like that got him the role.

Default He's Bond, James Bond

Actually, quite a few people take credit for casting Thomas (Sean) Connery as Bond. Who knows which version is true.

Saltzman saw him in a film called "On the Fiddle".

Terrence Young, who directed "Dr. No" had directed Connery in a film called "Action of the Tiger".

Broccoli saw him in a Disney film called "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" which only proves that Walt didn't know a Scottish accent from an Irish acccent.
Reportedly Broccoli's wife Dana said "pick him, he's gorgeous!"

Sean Connery was not TOTALLY unknown having starred opposite Lana Turner in the 1958 film "Another Time Another Place.

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm25561408...4?ref_=tt_ov_i


The film was such a terrible bomb at the box office, it actually appears as a joke in "Thunderball". Physical therapist Patricia Fearing (Molly Peters) is chasing after Bond as he is leaving. He did her the night before in the steam room, and later, in his suite. She blurts out she'll meet him "any time...any place!" To which Sean replies..."Another Time...Another Place."

The only person who hated Connery was Ian Fleming...he called him "that snorting lorry driver."
He changed his mind after seeing him in "Dr. No."

Sean Connery was also in the Gordon Scott starring Tarzan film "Tarzan's Greatest Adventure", playing the villain, no less!

Sean Connery's first foray into films was to play a sort of stooge to Alfred Lynch in 'On the Fiddle' (also known as Operation Snafu) about two army friends who are out to make a bit of money whilst avoiding the War at all costs. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055262/ I also remember Sean in a cameo role with Norman Rossington in The Longest Day just before he was picked for Dr No.

His first film was No Road Back 1957

He did quite a few more before On the Fiddle, including starring in Darby O'Gill and the Little People (1959)

He played an Irish soldier called Mulligan. He was on the same beach as Lord Lovat and his commando unit when Lovat called for his piper to start playing. Mulligan complained and said, "It takes an Irishman to play the pipes." This from a man who has "Scotland Forever" tattooed on his arm.

Odd for Connery, half the roles he plays he does them im a Scottish accent anyway from Russian submarine captains to Irish policemen and Spanish conquistadors(Juan Ramires - Highlander) - not exactly versatile.
Yes 'Scotland Forever' yet he lives abroad - not a Nicola Sturgeon fan either.

Here's one for you. I am sure you can name others but did you know that three former drummers became lead singers.
Madonna - she started off playing drums for a local band
Karen Carpenter - she was the band's drummer along with her brother Keith, before she was coaxed out from behind and became the lead singer.
And the most famous Phil Collins who was the drummer with Genesis and then the lead singer but continued to also played drums.
