If the lead died right before the filming of a Bond movie, who would they cast?
Let's imagine the actor cast as James Bond died by electrocuting himself in the bath just a week before principal filming started. This can happen to any of the actors before any of their movies. The producers are set on making the movie anyway, so they have to re-cast quickly. Who do you think they would have called? Who do you wish they called?
I haven't seen Michael Billington in much, but it's easy imagining him getting a call if Roger Moore was careless when listening to the radio while playing with the plastic ducks in the bath tub. That is until he appeared in TSWLM, but a quick Re-cast of the KGB agent killed in the PTS would allow him to step in as Bond in that one too. Do you have any suggestion or opinions? (I miss the Bond emoji...)
