    “I’m spinning out of my brain about it,” said the 28-year-old. “I flew to London, stayed on Piccadilly and was looked after beautifully. [I was] fitted out at Hugo Boss for a tuxedo, had my hair cut and filmed two scenes.”

    The Telegraph reaffirms previous reports that O’Lachlan was up against ER’s Goran Visnjic, Henry Cavill and Scotsman Ewan Stewart. Fans and media have dubbed these “the Final Four.” The candidates filmed a series of screen tests at Pinewood Studios for director Martin Campbell.

    The article confirms that the producers are looking for a relatively unknown actor who can take over the role from Pierce Brosnan.

    O’Lachlan says he expects to hear the final decision within the next 20 days.

    “The reality is I may not get the role, which is the conundrum for all actors, but at the end of the day, I’m incredibly grateful just to be considered.”

    “It’s James Bond, need I say any more?”
