Sir Richard Branson `bought` his cameo in Casino Royale
Sir Richard Branson landed cameo roles for himself and his son in the new James Bond movie after he helped to save movie dollars by providing a plane at the last minute. A lifelong Bond fan, Branson asked director Martin Campbell if his generosity would warrant a part in Casino Royale - reports Cinemablend
Producer Barbara Broccoli explains, "He was very supportive of us and he helped us out when we needed a plane in Prague. "He said, 'Can I just do a little cameo' and Martin said, 'Come to the airport and we'll stick you in the little security thing and you can set the bells off.' "He had a lot of fun and he was a trooper and it was a long night. He and his son were in the scene and they were great."
Branson can be seen playing a frenzied passenger going through airport security in the new Bond film.
