Sorry had no idea where this should go - not Bond related, but does relate to a Bond producer.


I was watching Stephen Frears' new film "The Programme" (Lance Armstrong/Cycling doping scandal) and was surprised when I saw who was playing Lance Armstrong's doctor - a certain Michael G. Wilson. It's a small role, with only a few lines of dialogue, but Wilson was fine in the role.


It did make me wonder how this came about. Wasn't Frears attached to direct the Jinx spin-off? So was this Wilson's way of apologising to him or simply a favour to a friend? Anyone know how Wilson got this part?


I wonder if he is considering any more acting - beyond his Bond cameos, of course.

Yeah, I'd already checked IMDb to check all those. Just thought this was a curio that others might want to be aware of. :)
