I think Clive Owen as interested in Bond. If you want a hint of how he might have played it, check out his Bond spoof in the first Steve Martin Pink Panther film (best part of the movie, IMO).

I'm too lazy to go check, but I thought it was the other way round. Am sure I read an interview where he said that they asked him to audition but he wasn't interested.

Of course, just 'cos he said it doesn't make it true!
There might have been other factors like how much they were willing to pay, what the role entailed. We don't know whether they had "Casino Royale" as we know it lined up when they asked him or the script was basically Die Another Day II. There are all sorts of potential factors involved. Maybe he didn't want to play a newbie Bond, but step into the shoes of Brosnan or Connery's more experienced Bond. All I can say is he'd have been perfect (not that I'm complaining about their final choice).
