As the seek for the next James Bond continues, one factor is for positive — Pierce Brosnan merely does not care who turns into the next martini-drinking undercover agent.
The actor, 69, helmed the long-lasting 007 position in a complete of 4 Bond movies, spanning from 1995 till his departure from the franchise in 2002.
When requested who needs to be sipping on the “shaken, not stirred” martini after Daniel Craig, Brosnan made his ideas on the matter abundantly clear.
“Who should do it?” he stated to GQ journal in a canopy interview. “I don’t care.”
“It’ll be interesting to see who they get, who the man shall be,” he continued. “Whoever he be, I wish him well.”
Brosnan was the fifth actor to land the position of Bond, after Timothy Dalton who appeared as the key agent in two movies.
During Brosnan’s 7 years as Bond, he appeared in 4 movies, together with “GoldenEye” in 1995, “Tomorrow Never Dies” in 1997, “The World Is Not Enough” in 1999, and 2002’s “Die Another Day.”
Elsewhere within the interview, Brosnan revealed he is solely seen two of Craig’s 5 Bond movies: “Skyfall” and the newest launch, “No Time to Die.”
“I love Skyfall,” the actor instructed the outlet. When requested on his ideas about “No Time To Die,” Brosnan appeared to throw shade on the movie.
“I’m not too sure about the last one,” he revealed. Despite the thought, Brosnan applauded Craig for being “very courageous” and “very strong.”
As the seek for the next Bond goes on, discuss of Idris Elba being the next 007 has been occurring for years. Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson just lately responded to the whispers.
“He’s great,” Wilson instructed Variety whereas Broccoli added, “We love Idris.”
“It’s going to be a couple of years off,” Broccoli stated. “And when we cast Bond, it’s a 10-, 12-year commitment. So he’s probably thinking, ‘Do I really want that thing?’ Not everybody wants to do that. It was hard enough getting (Daniel Craig to do it).”
Wilson identified that Craig, who is now 54, was in his 30s when he first began as Bond. With Elba being 50, he can be at the least in his 60s by the point he would name it quits, making the casting look unlikely.
