PIERCE BROSNAN: I SUCKED AS JAMES BOND!
PIERCE BROSNAN’s self-loathing on Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
“I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger (Moore) and Sean (Connery),” Brosnan told the UK Guardian.
“It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn’t have a follow-through of reality, it was surface.
“But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well.”
Despite his sons’ pleas has he ever re-watched his Bond flicks?
“I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. ‘Cause it’s just never good enough,” he laughed.
“It’s a horrible feeling.”
Meanwhile, Brosnan has had a career on beyond Bond. His new globe-trotting low rent actioner with Emma Thomson, “The Love Punch” is due to hit stateside big screens shortly.
Bond-age IS forever.
