    4 - Speedy is right, those seven have all played James Bond. But did anyone know that the very first time James Bond appears in Dr. No (the first Bond film) - in the opening ""gun barrel"" scene where Bond walks on screen and fires his gun at the camera - he was actually played by stuntman Bob Simmonds rather than Sean Connery? Yes, I'm an anorak.
