** Creator/PierceBrosnan was set to play Bond, and even screen-tested for the part, after the cancellation of ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' (Dalton had been approached first and was unavailable as he was filming ''Film/BrendaStarr''). However, the publicity from the casting caused the ratings of ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' to rise - which caused NBC to {{uncancel|ed}} the show at (literally) the last possible second. The producers, not wanting to cast an actor who was appearing in a TV show at the same time (Albert R. Broccoli was quoted as saying, "Series/RemingtonSteele will not be Film/JamesBond"), revoked the offer to Brosnan and cast Dalton after sorting out his conflict (Broccoli had wanted Dalton to play Bond for years, as far back as 1969's ''On Her Majesty's Secret Service'' only for Dalton himself to politely decline at the time as he felt himself to be too young and felt intimidated by the idea of following in the footsteps of Creator/SeanConnery). The worst part - with Brosnan no longer playing Bond, the ratings for the revived ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' tanked and the show was cancelled again. Brosnan would finally get to be Bond in 1995's ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}''.
