007: Road to a Million
Brian Cox reveals that he signed on for the upcoming competition series “007: Road to a Million” thinking it was for a role in the next James Bond movie. He tells The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon:
“I thought it was the new James Bond film. So I said, ‘Oh, finally they’re getting me in a James Bond movie.’ I said yes. There was no script, there was no James Bond… For years, I thought I’d love to be a James Bond villain. It would be really interesting. I thought, ‘This is my moment!’ But it wasn’t.”
He adds he ultimately had a lot of fun filming “007: Road to a Million” which premieres November 10th.
