James Bond: Ewan McGregor recently sat down with the Chicago Sun Times during his press rounds for his starring role in Tim Burton's Big Fish. During the interview McGregor revealed his take on the recent rumors floating around about taking up the role of James Bond...

"I think about this the same way I thought about the rumors that I might do 'Star Wars.' I always said with that one, too, that I'd have to wait and see if they really wanted me and how I felt about it at the time." He adds, "What would worry me about Bond is that it does seem to require an enormous commitment in the same way that 'Star Wars' doesn't because those movies were so far apart, whereas Bond seems to be closer together. ... I also notice Pierce Brosnan spending a lot of the year promoting Bond films. So, I would worry about that because I'd have less time to do other films."
