James McAvoy Kills Speculation On Playing Ian Fleming

No Comments

Last week we reported that James McAvoy was being mentioned as a likely candidate for the role of James Bond creator and author Ian Fleming . Apparently and according to the man himself James McAvoy, star of  “Wanted” and “Atonement”, James was sent the script, like ages ago and no one contacted him about it after that.

James in his own words:

“It’s rumor. Again, it’s all a rumor. I’ve read the script — I read it a long time ago, though, and I never even spoke to the producers. I don’t know where it’s come from.”

He added that it’s strange to hear reports about yourself that aren’t true. “Quite often you’re just hearing things that aren’t true. As much as they’re not bad things, there’s a part of you that goes, ‘But it’s not true!’ It’s like you’re saying that I like coffee instead of tea. It’s not that big of a deal — it’s just not true!”

Well there you have it. Another casting rumour squashed. Thanks to the Playlist for the heads up.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.
