George Lazenby's autobiography 'The Other Fella' to be published in 2012

Actor News - 11-10-10
One-time James Bond actor George Lazenby will release his autobiography in 2012, the same year that 007 celebrates his 50th silver screen anniversary.

The book will be titled "The Other Fella", after the fourth-wall breaking line Lazenby's Bond utters in the opening sequence of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" - his sole outing as Ian Fleming's spy in 1969.

His literary agent AP Watt sold the title's world rights to publisher Charter at the industry's big annual trade event held in Frankfurt last week.

The book is touted as "a brilliantly frank tale of how he bluffed his way into the role of James Bond, and what he did afterwards."

Century will publish in hardback in spring 2012 with an Arrow paperback scheduled for 2013.
