he mentioned that he is probably about to take a role that he’s been offered which is unlike anything he has ever done before. He says the fact that he has literally never done it is the reason he SHOULD
BC's got more in development than seems likely he can actually do, as it is. And those are the things we know about, when the probability is that there are multiple other possibilities being juggled behind the scenes as well. So while I'm also very curious re what on Earth it is that he's referring to there, I'm also wondering what it might end up being in place of. One presumes it must be pretty interesting, though.
Given that this new role has been referred to so publicly (even as without naming it and with the "probably about to take it"), it must surely mean that "whatever" is pretty much a done deal. I wonder how long it'll be before there's an announcement?
Re what it is, a musical would certainly fit the "unlike anything he's done before" thing. And I do know he said long ago that he would like to do one, but he's a rather bigger fish in the pond now, and apart from "My Fair Lady" (which got dropped) I can't think of any musicals likely to be in development that would be obviously suited.
And re the James Bond thing, I never thought BC was remotely appropriate for Bond, although I did think playing Fleming wasn't so far adrift. But the "no comment" comment made me laugh.
