A Barcroft man with no acting experience has unbelievably been handed the role as the new James Bond after attending a charitable dinner for The Fight For Alfie on Friday night.
Gavin Malone the self appointed community leader from Barcroft posted photographs of himself at the Gala Ball and it was seen by EON Productions who make the iconic films.
A bemused Gavin told Newry Spud:
“I knew I looked pretty amazing to be fair but to be snapped up by the producers of James Bond is something that is something I never expected.
They said they might feature the new film in Newry. I will be going around Barcroft, Parkhead and Derrybeg handing out job applications fighting unemployment.”
