Branson's Bond Cameo Was Bought
By Celeb Stink: 2006-11-08
SIR RICHARD BRANSON landed cameo roles for himself
and his son in the new JAMES BOND movie after he
helped to save movie dollars by providing a plane at the
last minute. A lifelong Bond fan, Branson asked director
MARTIN CAMPBELL if his generosity would warrant a
part in CASINO ROYALE.
Producer BARBARA BROCCOLI explains, "He was very
supportive of us and he helped us out when we needed
a plane in Prague. "He said, 'Can I just do a little cameo'
and Martin said, 'Come to the airport and we'll stick you
in the little security thing and you can set the bells off.'
"He had a lot of fun and he was a trooper and it was a
long night. He and his son were in the scene and they
Branson can be seen playing a frenzied passenger going
through airport security in the new Bond film.
