Issue #68 of the full-colour James Bond magazine MI6 Confidential is now shipping worldwide.

MI6 Confidential Issue #44

It is a rare honour to play James Bond. Only six men have this distinction. Or have they? While Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig come to mind easily, people less steeped in the franchise may not recall Bob Holness, or even Toby Stephens who has played 007 in various adventures.

MI6 Confidential Issue #44

This issue shines a spotlight into the darker corners of franchise history to the oft-forgotten men to be cast (or almost cast) in the iconic role. We also go behind the scenes of Brosnan’s original audition process and reveal the wild idea Cubby Broccoli had to produce films back-to-back.

MI6 Confidential Issue #44

We round out the issue with a conversation with author Mark Edlitz, whose research has unearthed a rich vein of unseen Bond material.
