The Other FellowMatthew Bauer
Bond, James Bond. The iconic name of the legendary character was found by author Ian Fleming in 1952 by an unsuspecting birdwatcher. 60 years later, Matthew Bauer sets off on a mission to discover what it's like to be called James Bond in reality. He meets people from all over the world who go through life with the world-famous name: a Swedish 007 superfan, a gay theater director, an African-American accused of murder. What starts as a light-hearted examination of namesakes becomes an engaging reflection on masculinity, gender and race in the shadow of a film icon.
