Bonnie Tyler
Singer Bonnie Tyler has appealed to movie bosses for the chance to record a James Bond theme after she turned down an offer to perform the title song from Never Say Never Again.

The Holding Out for a Hero hitmaker was approached to head up the soundtrack to the 1983 spy thriller, starring Sean Connery, but she snubbed the offer, and is now hoping for a second chance.

She tells Britain's Celebs on Sunday magazine, "No (I don't regret it), but I wish they'd ask me again and give me a good song. I didn't like the song and it was the only one that never became a hit."

007 Was Based On Andrew Lloyd Webber's Father-In-Law

Quatum of Solace
Ian Fleming based his James Bond character on composer Andrew Lloyd Webber's former father-in-law.

The theatre impresario's TV personality daughter Imogen has revealed the writer drew inspiration for his superspy from her grandfather.

She says, "He's based on my mother's father. He served under Ian Fleming in the war in naval intelligence, and my grandfather is one of the men James Bond is based upon. It's a very cool claim to fame."

Sean Connery
Bond bosses have been left disappointed after Sean Connery reportedly declined an invitation to take part in the 50th anniversary celebrations of the superspy series next year.

The Scottish veteran was the first ever actor to portray the suave British secret agent in 1962's Dr. No, and went on to play James Bond seven times.

The series is set to return to the big screen with Daniel Craig slipping on his tuxedo for his third outing as the spy next year to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the franchise.

Bosses at MGM - the studio behind the movies - are planning to mark the milestone ...

Celebrities Who Have Posed for Playboy

Celebrities Who Have Posed for Playboy
Playboy: the original "I read it for the articles" nudie magazine was founded in 1953 by the legendary Hugh Hefner and associates (along with a $1,000 IOU from Mama Hef). Contrary to popular belief, however, Playboy's primary purpose is not to provide lustful bust-full images for the 18+ horny male crowd - tisk tisk for even thinking such rubbish. Rather, the mission of Playboy Magazine is to create a unique cocktail of sexuality, politics, art, and culture for the man about town who is all about experiencing the finer things in life, which obviously includes lots of boobies.

For the de...

Ursula Andress Tops Bond Girl Poll

November 16th, 2008 7:00pm EST
Ursula Andress
Original Bond girl Ursula Andress has beat out competition from Halle Berry and Kim Basinger to be named 007s sexiest siren, according to a new online poll. The Swiss actress entranced audiences as Honey Ryder in James Bond's 1962 debut, Dr. No, opposite Sean Connery.

She also played Vesper Lynd in 1967 Bond spoof Casino Royale, a role later taken on by Eva Green in the 2006 spy movie.

The superspy franchise, which boasts 22 completed films, has seen close to 100 fiesty females take on the coveted part. Sexy star Halle Berry tailed the actress in the second spot, after she played ...

A Look At All The Actors Who Have Played 007

November 13th, 2008 10:56am EST
Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.


Sean Connery To Return As A Bond Villain?

March 28th, 2008 8:45am EDT
Sean Connery
Former James Bond star Sean Connery is considering returning to the 007 franchise as a villain. The 77-year-old was the first actor to play the legendary super-spy and starred in seven of the hit films, with his last outing in 1983's Never Say Never Again.

Although Connery will not be reprising his most famous role, he is considering a part in a new Bond movie - but only if he is cast as a bad guy. He says, "I wouldn't mind coming back as a Bond villain. But I don't think they would pay me enough. They don't pay the money for other parts, only for the Bond character, although that was...

A saucy line from Moonraker has been voted James Bond fans' favorite 007 sexual innuendo. Cinema advertising giants Pearl And Dean invited devotees of the secret agent franchise to vote for their favorite sexy gag from the legendary franchise.

The top ten saucy Bond lines are as follows:

1. "I think he's attempting re-entry." - Moonraker (1979)

2. "I thought Christmas comes just once a year." Bond ...

Brosnan Back As Bond?

June 29th, 2006 3:17pm EDT
Pierce Brosnan
Pierce Brosnan looks set to follow in the footsteps of Sean Connery by teaming up with movie mogul Kevin McClory for a rival 007 film. Brosnan, who was unceremoniously dumped as James Bond last year, is the favorite to play the superspy in Never Say Never Again producer McClory's new movie, which is set to compete with an upcoming Bond film.

McClory, who owns the rights to 1965's Thunderball, remade that film as "Never Say Never Again" in the early 1980s, and now he plans to have yet another go at the Bond film - with Brosnan as a returning 007.
