Before he left everyone guessing if he was a bird, a plane, only to emerge as Superman in Man of Steel, Henry Cavill was eyeing to play James Bond in the hit franchise. Yes, before the production house picked Daniel Craig to play the James Bond in Casino Royale, Cavill was eying to essay the role. While he thought he would be the perfect fit, the makers of Casino Royale weren't sure Cavill would be the perfect fit. Cavill revealed he was mentally preparing to don the Bond suit but he was rejected because he was "chubby" for the role. 

In a conversation with Men's Health, Cavill revealed he auditioned to play James Bond in Casino Royale. The actor recalled reenacting a scene from one of the Sean Connery films that involved him wrapped in a towel. However, Cavill confessed he wasn't fully prepared for the audition. 

“I probably could have prepared better. I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, ‘Looking a little chubby there, Henry.’ I didn’t know how to train or diet. And I’m glad Martin said something, because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better," he revealed. More than a decade later, Cavill is one of the fittest Hollywood stars. Maybe, he could the James Bond role a second chance. 

As we know it, Craig is stepping down as 007 and the production house is on a lookout for a new actor to essay the role of James Bond. Cavill, who was last seen in Justice League and Mission: Impossible: Fallout, could give Bond a shot. Do you think Henry Cavill would make a good James Bond?
