'Man of Steel' Henry Cavill was devastated to lose Bond role
Man of Steel star Henry Cavill has since forged a promising movie career of his own, but he admits being overlooked for James Bond was a blow â not least because he'd turned down a major role to pursue his dream of becoming the suave secret agent, reports EntertainmentWise
âWhen I wasn't selected for Bond, I was very disappointed,â he told Nuts magazine. âI'd turned down a leading role in 300 because it was down to Daniel Craig and me, and auditioning for Bond took all my focus.
âThe choice was between a younger Bond and one closer to his 40's, which is to say, Daniel Craig. But I've seen what Daniel did and I think the Bond producers made the right choice. He's fantastic.â
