He portrays the author in the new BBC mini-series

After 23 James Bond films, the author and creator of the character is finally getting a film of his own. In a new, four-part series, fans of Bond will get to go inside the world of Ian Fleming, portrayed by the Bond-lite Dominic Cooper.

Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond shows how Fleming not only created Bond but was actually living the life of the fictional spy in what looks to be sexy, action-filled version of the author's life. There will be women, car chases, gadgets and espionage. 

To be quite frank, BBC had us at Cooper, Dominic Cooper. 

Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond premieres Jan. 29 on BBC America.
