Lazenby cast in ‘Gut Feeling’

George Lazenby, who only lived once as James Bond, way back in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” has been cast in the indie “Gut Feeling,” alongside Julie Hagerty and Susan Blakely.

“He’s anxious to get his career activated again,” said “Feeling” producer Irwin Olian, who described Lazenby as “very fit and motivated.” The actor, who has been working in “smaller films, action-type stuff and Australian TV,” Olian said, plays an experienced thesp who stars in a great commercial and becomes a sensation.

Hagerty (“Lost in America”) plays the topper of an ad agency, and Raphael Sbarge (“Independence Day”) plays a young ad exec who produces the world’s hottest ad campaign. Also in the cast are Trevor Goddard (“Mortal Kombat”), Bruce Weitz (“Hill Street Blues”), Christina Solis (“Chicago Hope”) and Mark Adair Rios (“Speed 2”).

“Feeling,” a black comedy written and directed by British newcomer Ian Sears, began shooting Monday in Los Angeles. Production company is Olian’s newly formed Famous Entertainment Ltd., in association with Sears’ Stranded Films. Arthur Kananack will handle worldwide sales.

Olian was previously a senior attorney for Warner Bros., did a stint in business affairs at ICM and advised investors on Wall Street.
