5 of 20: The 2004 movie 'Layer Cake,' which starred Daniel Craig as a charismatic coke dealer, caught the eye of James Bond film producers who were looking to replace Pierce Brosnan. According to the UK newspaper The Telegraph, in October of 2008, Craig initially was not enthusiastic about taking on the role because there hadn't been a script yet and he couldn't say yes without a script. Brosnan helped get Craig on board, telling him to 'go for it' and that he will have the ride of his life.
