Becoming Bond trailer tells George Lazenby’s story

George Lazenby sprung to fame, as you probably know, by being cast as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. And then he walked away. Becoming Bond, a documentary set to debut on Hulu in the US this coming May, aspires to tell Lazenby’s story. Lazenby was a used car salesman when he got the job of playing James Bond. To date, he is the youngest actor to have played the spy. He was 29 years old when he starred in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, earning a Golden Globe New Star of the Year nomination (which was apparently a thing in 1970?) for the role before walking away from a nice, six-movie deal that would have seen him continuing on in the role.

What happened? Well, as you can tell from the trailer below, writer-director Josh Greenbaum has the real Lazenby tell his story while also having actors reenact the events on screen. The cast includes: Josh Lawson (House Of Lies), Jeff Garlin, Jake Johnson, Jane Seymour, and Dana Carvey.

Lazenby and the trailer promise a bit of everything — drama, comedy, romance, drugs, sex, twists, turns, the whole shebang. Is it a good story? “It depends if you like those kind of stories,” Lazenby tells the camera. Judging by the trailer, this is going to be one stylish, fascinating ride. Check it out…
