Casino Royale with cheese

While my crime-fighting responsibilities precluded serious consideration of the idea, Lee Pfeiffer reveals the Flea was not the only star of stage and screen to decline the new Bond role at the last moment (hat tip to the Flea's Network Warfare Expert).

I speak, of course, of the acting dynamo Rikki Lee Travolta who, according to his publicist’s seemingly omnipresent press releases, had been the beneficiary of a groundswell of grassroots fan support, as evidenced by the tidal wave of editions of “Casino Royale” that his fan base allegedly sent to him. Over 135,000 according to his press release. An amazing feat given that it’s doubtful 135,000 copies of the book have been in print in the last quarter century.
