Becoming Bond Trailer
9th March 2017
There may not be a new James Bond film this year, but there will be a new film about James Bond
By MI6 Staff
George Lazenby will tell-all about his tenure as James Bond in a new feature-length documentary 'Becoming Bond' from Hulu. It will premiere at the SXSW festival this weekend, and stream online in the USA from 20th May.
Follow George Lazenby on his journey from a car salesman to securing the role as James Bond. The stranger-than-fiction true story of George Lazenby, a poor Australian car mechanic who, through an unbelievable set of circumstances, landed the role of James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), despite having never acted a day in his life. Then after being offered the next seven Bond films and a $1 million signing bonus, he turned it all down.
In a piece of meta-casting, Bond girl Jane Seymour plays Lazenby's British talent agent. Lazenby himself is played by Australian actor Josh Lawson. Other real people from Lazenby's past that are featured are his fellow male model roommate Ken Gaherity (played by Landon Ashworth), Bond producer Harry Saltzman (Jeff Garlin), and 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' director Peter Hunt (Adamo Palladino).
