Arrogant or insane?
A model who landed the role of Bond, and was so good, he was offered a six picture deal and a million dollars on signing..... but turned it down and put fans off by not wanting to even look like bond, growing a beard and long hair.
So did he think there were bigger movies if he said no? Or did he just self sabotage? A loser can never win and when they do, they get in their own way.
