London, Feb 5 Veteran British actor Gary Oldman finds his spy character from the movie “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” more interesting than James Bond.
The Oscar-nominated star, who plays veteran spy George Smiley in the film, admits he has always been puzzled by author Ian Fleming’s flamboyant hero.
“He’s (Smiley) the polar opposite of Bond. He is the man in the mac who you would pass in the street and not look at twice, whereas Bond, it’s always struck me, announces who he is everywhere he goes — to the villain, to the guy that wants to kill him,” showbizspy.com quoted Oldman as saying.
“He wears a white tuxedo and you go, ‘Where’s Bond…?’ He’s just pulled up in the Aston Martin… I’ve always found that strange. (It’s like), ‘I’m Bond, kill me,” added the actor known for playing antagonist in films like “The Fifth Element” and “Air Force One”.
