Giving Bond the brush off.
The actor reveals he was once approached about being 007 when Sean Connery was about to hang up his Beretta.
"Harry Saltzman, Bond producer, took me to dinner at the White Elephant in London and offered me the role," he said.
"I could have done it great. But I was so self-conscious about following Sean."
The role went, for one film only, to George Lazenby before Connery returned for Diamonds are Forever and then Roger Moore took over.
Like Camelot, missing out on Bond is a regret.
He said: "All the young actors back then were reading the James Bond books before the movies started. I knew Ian Fleming - the author of the 007 novels - and I used the way he walked when I did The Limey."
