    Anyone who hasn't seen The Matador yet is seriously missing out.

    Brosnan was good in that. Not a typical role for him.

    That's what makes it so special for me. Easily my favorite non-Bond work of his, I revisit it a few times a year, it seems.

    I have only seen it once, but I did like it. Another favourite role of his, for me, is in Mars Attacks. Another atypical role.

    I also liked Brosnan's performance in the somewhat complex and enjoyable Irish drama, The Nephew, with Hill Harper.

    Mrs. Doubtfire proved he could play comedy and a villain.

    I watched Mrs Doubtfire at the cinema for some reason, I remember it well as it was the year Brosnan was announced as Bond, James Bond.

    Unveiled as James Bond media clips.


    Ah... 1994 simpler times indeed.

    Pierce Brosnan interview - GMTV, James Bond

    I forgot about this interview, highly amusing and PB is very diplomatic about a certain co start ;))

    I rewatched TND with the Mrs last night, I haven't watched Bond in a while and I forgot how fantastic Brosnan is in that scene with Dr Kaufman. I was gripped like I'd never seen the film before. Then his ice cold delivery of "me too" before he pulls the trigger is fantastic. For me that's one of his best moments as Bond

    Weird nitpick, but I always felt he should have said “so am I”. It would have sounded more natural.

    You know what I've never thought about that before mate. Trying to picture it in mind, it definitely fits and I can picture Bond saying it
    This reminds me of Bond saying elevator instead of lift, in TND. That was annoying

    I saw it at the cinema because I adored Robin Williams (still do). I wonder if the reason Pierce didn't gell for me as Bond at the time is because I thought of him as that guy who stole Robin's wife!

    That maybe the case sometimes as a viewer we can take an impression of an actor over from another film.

    I never liked Pierce initially though I felt he was a bit of a wimp to play Bond, that carried over from Remington Steele I guess. Pierce has grown on me over the years and now I just think he was unfortunate to have been given average films to do for the most part. Goldeneye I now rate highly and easily his best film IMO.

    I grew up watching Mork and Mindy and Happy Days I was a fan on Williams when I was young. Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society were good films and The Fisher King is fantastic though I love Terry Gilliam's work.

    That does look like absolute dog-crap.

    I will probably watch it :D

    Not exactly my kind of film, going by the trailer anyway. But it could be a decent two hours, and seeing Brosnan infiltrating a prison as an inmate should prove fun.

    Wow! He is making some choices, isn’t he? :) I couldn’t tell which character he’s playing, is it the big deer?

    From his Instagram, it's the deer, 'Patrick', and also 'Grandad':

    That should be fun. Nice to know Pierce was looking at my fan NTTD poster for a while there (on the wall behind Griffin!) :D
