‘Fleming’ Trailer: Dominic Cooper Plays the Spy Who Built Bond

Fleming The Man Who Would Be Bond

Fleming won’t be the first time that the romantic espionage-tinted life of Bond author Ian Fleming has been used for entertainment outside of 007’s exploits, but it definitely looks like the slickest version of events yet — effectively casting the writer as “the man who would be Bond.” It’s part of BBC America’s programing, meaning that a writer whose spy novels became a movie franchise will be the centerpiece of a TV show.

And yet it still lacks Spymaker‘s ingenious stuntcasting of  Sean Connery’s son playing Fleming.

Fortunately, it features Dominic Cooper — an actor who seems to have perpetually walked out of an oil slick. He’s joined at the hip by Lara Pulver who was a shock to the system as Irene Adler in Sherlock. Check out the trailer for yourself.
