Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 Director Chris Columbus is a big James Bond fan and he was crushed when Brosnan didn't get cast when he was offered the part during the making of Remington Steele (1982) but they wouldn't release him from his contract. When they worked together in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Columbus told Brosnan he'd make a great James Bond but he thought that ship had sailed. In 1995, MGM called Columbus telling him they're looking for the new James Bond and Brosnan was one of the choices so Columbus recommended him; his little contribution to the James Bond saga.
2 During the restaurant scene in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) when her teeth fell into a wine glass, the cast didn't know Robin Williams would do that, and their reactions on film were genuine, mirroring the shock of the crew.
3 In 1993, he was willing to play the small role of Stu in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). Chris Columbus thought him a phenomenal actor.
4 Of the four James Bond movies he made, GoldenEye (1995) is the only one where he isn't laying on top of the female lead in the final shot of the film.
5 To date, is the only Bond actor to have never technically appeared in a Bond film based off of an original Ian Fleming novel or short story.
6 He appeared in three films with Joe Don Baker in as many years: GoldenEye (1995), Mars Attacks! (1996) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).
7 Currently in Cape Town, South Africa filming the movie Barry. [February 2009]
8 A lifelong Catholic, he regularly attends mass at his local church in Malibu, California.
9 Became a father for the 3rd time at age 47 when his fiancée [now 2nd wife] Keely Shaye Brosnan gave birth to their son Paris Beckett Brosnan on 27 February 2001.

11 Became a father for the 1st time at age 30 when his 1st wife Cassandra Harris gave birth to their son Sean William Walter Brosnan, aka Sean Brosnan, on 13 September 1983.

14 Lives in Malibu, California.
15 His favourite comic actor is the former "Monty Python", John Cleese.
16 He's Meryl Streep's close friend.
17 After being chosen to play "James Bond", Brosnan wasn't allowed to wear a tuxedo in any other film. This posed a problem for the wardrobe staff of The Thomas Crown Affair (1999).
18 Attended Elliott Comprehensive School, Putney, in the 1960s
19 Nicknamed "Colonel Chunky" by the crew on Mamma Mia! (2008).
20 Spent three years studying acting at The Drama Centre, in north London in his early years.
21 In addition to playing a small role in The Broken Chain (1993), actor Girard Swan briefly worked as Brosnan's stand-in.
22 Shares two roles with two previous James Bonds. He and Sean Connery have also both played King Arthur. He and David Niven have also both played Phileas Fogg, Niven in Around the World in Eighty Days (1956) and Brosnan in Around the World in 80 Days (1989).
23 The production of Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) was a troubled one, owing in part to the producers agreeing to have the film ready for a December release. Brosnan rejected the script after it had been rewritten; it was then rewritten again during filming by the writer of the original script; director and scriptwriter were not talking to each other, and Brosnan and Teri Hatcher were not compatible. The film cost around $110 million, but only took in more than $346 million at the box office worldwide.
24 He is a vocal supporter of same-sex marriage, gay adoption, gun control and protecting the environment.
25 Due to rising budgets and declining audiences, Brosnan's last three Bond films were the only ones in the series to not take more than five times their cost. Timothy Dalton's two films took in more than five times their budget, and George Lazenby's one Bond film (On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) more than ten. Whether you go by budget-to-gross, or inflation-adjusted ratios, Brosnan's films did average business. Die Another Day (2002) in particular, made the smallest profit on its theatrical run of any Bond movie - a major reason for revamping the film series. Sean Connery's Bond films remain the most successful, with Thunderball (1965) having taken 22 times its cost at the worldwide box-office.
26 Met his Bond predecessor Sir Sean Connery for the first time at The 76th Annual Academy Awards (2004), but only for a few minutes.
27 He's an only child.
28 Supported John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election.
29 While it may be incorrect to suggest that Brosnan was fired from the role of James Bond, because technically the producers simply chose not to renew his contract, they had agreed in principle to collaborate on a fifth Bond film before the producers pulled from negotiations. This makes Brosnan the only Bond to end his reign not of his own accord.
30 Quit smoking cigarettes before the release of Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).
31 He has two roles in common with Sean Connery: (1) Connery played James Bond in Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and Never Say Never Again (1983) while Brosnan played him in GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002) and (2) Connery played King Arthur in First Knight (1995) while Brosnan played him in in Quest for Camelot (1998).
32 Is a fan of Doctor Who (1963).
33 He is a professional "fire eater", having performed a fire eating act in a circus at a young age. Knowing this, the writers for Remington Steele (1982) asked him to hone his skills as a fire eater for an episode during the series' second season, entitled Remington Steele: High Flying Steele (1984), where Remington and Laura are to go undercover in a circus. He also performed the act in Muppets Tonight: Pierce Brosnan (1996).
34 In 2004, Quentin Tarantino expressed an interest in directing Brosnan in a version of Casino Royale (2006), but was turned down by the Bond producers.
35 Brosnan's Bond was mainly dressed with shirts and ties from Turnbull & Asser, shoes from Church's, and suits from the Italian company Brioni. The cuff links and the belts were mostly Dunhill's.
36 Was considered for the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman (1989).
37 After Timothy Dalton was unavailable, Brosnan was chosen to play 007 in 1986 and was given the script to The Living Daylights (1987). Although he was contracted to Remington Steele (1982) for seven seasons, NBC decided to cancel the show at the end of the fourth season, which meant that Brosnan was free to play "James Bond" in The Living Daylights (1987) the following year. However, shortly after the end of the fourth season, NBC had second thoughts about canceling "Remington Steele" and, subsequently, approached the Bond producers, directly, in an attempt to strike a deal that would allow Brosnan to play both "James Bond" and "Remington Steele" the following year. NBC also offered to completely reschedule the shooting of "Remington Steele" to ensure that there were no scheduling conflicts. But eventually, Albert R. Broccoli famously told NBC that "James Bond will not be Remington Steele and Remington Steele will not be James Bond". Accordingly, Brosnan would only play Bond if the show remained canceled. NBC had a 60-day deadline to revoke their decision to cancel the "Remington Steele" series and, at 6:30 pm on the 60th day of the deadline, Brosnan learned that NBC decided to make a fifth season. So, the role of the new James Bond went back to Timothy Dalton. NBC went on to make only six episodes of the fifth season of "Remington Steele" before finally canceling the show for good.

Quotes

#Quote
1 [on the end of playing James Bond] I was in the Bahamas, working on a movie called After the Sunset (2004) and my agents called me up and said, "Negotiations have stopped." [Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson] are not quite sure what they want to do. They'll call you next Thursday. (...) I sat in Richard Harris's house in the Bahamas, and Barbara and Michael were on the line - "we're so sorry." She was crying, Michael was stoic and he said, "You were a great James Bond. Thank you very much," and I said, "Thank you very much. Goodbye." That was it. I was utterly shocked and just kicked to the curb with the way it went down. [2015]
2 [on Spectre (2015)] The story was kind of weak - it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did. It is neither fish nor fowl. It's neither Bond nor Bourne. Am I in a Bond movie? Not in a Bond movie?
3 [on Daniel Craig in Spectre (2015)] He's a mighty warrior, and I think he found a great sense of himself in this one with the one-liners and a nice playfulness there. Just get a tighter story and he'll have another classic.
4 [on why his tenure as James Bond ended] I think I was caught up between the egos of the producers and the studios, really. They (the producers) didn't know whether to go younger, they didn't know what to do, period.
5 I had good luck and a bit of talent somewhere in the back pocket that I could kind of polish and nurture, but I dreamt and wished for all of this, then you get all of that and you've just got to show up and work.
6 [on lessons he learned about himself that he still carries] That I'm a survivor. That I can dream well. That I can work hard. That I have some kind of faith that keeps me in check, keeps me grounded in life. And just really good fortune to have traveled through the fair and still be at the table, so to speak.
7 [on working with Robin Williams on Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) and his death in 2014] I had the time of my life. Every day was sheer magic with the man. His humanity, his grace and his brilliance of heart and mind and soul, his reverence and sincerity. It's a deep loss
8 [on choosing to act as a film producer] When it's your project, you have certain paternal feeling toward it. I always try to create a home and a safe place. I think my strength is bringing actors together.
9 [on why he undertook The November Man (2014), another spy thriller] Having completed the James Bond series, and after saving the world four times, there was a kind of a void left in my life.
10 [on playing 'Devereaux', a retired CIA man] This agent has grit and gravitas. He really is a cultured badass.
11 I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of Batman (1989), but I just couldn't really take it seriously, any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I? Don't get me wrong, because I love Batman, and I grew up on Batman. As a kid in Ireland, we used to get our raincoats and tie them round our neck and swing through the bicycle shed.
12 [on the possibility of being in The Expendables 4] Sylvester Stallone is the one that's given us these wonderful platforms for actors who have and had careers to go play and have fun and to entertain. To bring a bunch of guys together who saved the world, fought the bad guys, and put them all on the same stage, that's crazy good.
13 I have a strong faith, being Catholic Irish, that has been maintained throughout my life. I enjoy the ritual of church, prayer. I'm not consistent in it, but it's within me. The dark times and the troubles , they'll come regardless. You just hope you have the strength and courage toad address them and endure.
14 It's so manicured and codified in America. They don't venture into the realms of reality when it comes to the relationships of men and women. They go to the market of youth...But I do love the notion of the younger woman as I am now the older man. You see it in men: that fear that the clock is ticking, the clock is ticking, and women become more and more beautiful, every age group. It just becomes this lustfulness of yearning and want.
15 [facing reality in 2014] My wife had given me a great birthday party the night before in Malibu, and sent me off with all my birthday cards and said 'you must put them all up' which I dutifully did when I got in. The next morning all the birthday cards were there and there was one in the middle that said '60'. Just that number alone.
16 [his feelings towards the role of James Bond, looking back] I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger [Moore] and Sean [Connery]. 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.
17 [Being Bond was like being] an ambassador to a small nation. It's the gift that keeps on giving, that allowed me to create my own production company and make my own movies.
18 I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. 'Cause it's just never good enough. It's a horrible feeling.
19 [on The Expendables 4] The offer has come in for the next Expendables. I just worked over in Bulgaria with Avi Lerner who makes them. He said, 'Would you like to be in The Expendables? I'd love to have you', and I said, 'Why not?' So we'll see.
20 The kill ratio in movies is overwhelming and I never really took the violence in the Bond movies too seriously, the plot was not so real.
21 [on the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013] I have deep feelings on the issue. I am so connected to Boston being an Irishman, and now being an American citizen. It has a numbing effect on one's senses and creates deep fear in our hearts and deep sorrow. We are somewhat powerless to do anything, but to extend our sympathy to the victims of such a tragedy and hope that mankind will come to its senses and stop killing each other.
22 Assault weapons should be banned without question and guns should be monitored. The gun law in America is absolutely crazy and out of control.
23 [on Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)] I still don't know what the movie's about. I honestly couldn't tell you.
24 [on working with Jack Nicholson on Mars Attacks! (1996)] I was speechless that morning, working with him. I was having a cup of coffee by the bagels, desperately trying to remember my damn lines. Suddenly I look up and it's Jack. "Hey Pierce," he says. I keep stirring my coffee. Jack Nicholson is talking to me and I'm dumbstruck. Inside my head, I'm yelling at myself: "Jesus, just shake the man's hand." I couldn't move. I was immobilised by the Jack-ness of it all.
25 [on The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)] It was trying to enter into the world of Steve McQueen. How do you act The King of Cool? I was so damn nervous before that movie came out in New York. I remember having panic attacks in taxis and thinking, "Jesus Christ, what have we done?" I came out in hives or something. I couldn't breathe. It was terrifying.
26 [on playing James Bond] For me, the Bond that I played was caught in a time warp between what had gone before and what Daniel Craig does now. I always felt the restraints of the storytelling and it just didn't have enough bite to it. It was in the writing. The ghosts of Sean Connery and Roger Moore were there for me. It was hard to pull away from that because they were written in such a vernacular of what had gone on prior.
27 (On meeting his father for the first time) I was in Ireland doing one of the last episodes of Remington Steele (1982) in '86. He came to the hotel on a Sunday afternoon. I had tea and biscuits ready and, when I opened the door, there he was. Tom. He was a stranger. I expected him to be this very tall man. He was very lively, a wiry bantam cock of a man with great energy. We talked, had a couple of pints of Guinness, he took some photographs, and then he drove off. It was our only contact. The ultimate question was, "Why did you abandon me?" - but I never asked.
28 The Fourth Protocol (1987) and Mister Johnson (1990) weren't box-office hits, but they were successes for me. "Mister Johnson" is very close to my heart. Bruce Beresford gave me confidence and direction. Nomads (1986) didn't do anything for me. but it did for John McTiernan. Why didn't it work for me? My beard. I should have gone for a sleeker, more cosmetic image.
29 (On the actors he most admires) There's Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Gene Hackman, Spencer Tracy - and Cary Grant.
30 (1995, on losing his wife Cassie) I just feel very alive. In losing her, watching a life dwindle down, you could taste life, you could really sense it. Because everything slows down, everything revolved around the house and small accomplishments. And then with her passing and as the pain gets lesser, you realize what you've come through, that you're still breathing, feeling, thinking, making decisions. It's quite euphoric, the feeling. It gives you a great strength.
31 (On getting "Bell's palsy" in 1984 directly before going on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962)) I thought I was having a stroke. I remember being in the fucking dressing room beforehand doing my tie up. Suddenly, my face was half-numb and I couldn't close one eye. Then I felt my arm going numb. Oh jeez, I thought, I'm having a stroke, and just then came, "knock, knock ... ready for you now, Mr. Brosnan". It was not a good evening.
32 (On his early years in Ireland) I remember being very much a loner. Very solitary childhood. I didn't have the guidance of a mother and father. I remember missing my mother. I used to think she was in the Congo working in this war zone. In reality she was a nurse in London, but I lived in my imagination.
33 [on his portrayal of the character of James Bond] I never felt that I really nailed it.
34 [on Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)] I remember starting the first day on that film in an aircraft, flying a jet and it was 102 degrees, and I'm wearing a helmet and sweater, and then I'm being strangled over and over again, and I thought, 'Oh my God, this bloody character is going to kill me.' The press tour for that film was 22 countries. When I did it I knew the movie wasn't up to speed; it wasn't as good as GoldenEye (1995) and you have to bang the drum loudly to get the attention.
35 Cassie, I think, took it harder than I did. Because you want for your partner in life, you want the best for your partner. It just didn't happen. Timothy Dalton was signed the next day. And I became the guy who coulda been, shoulda been, might have been Bond. [recalling his late wife's reaction to the news that he had lost his chance to play "James Bond"].
36 I've always been a bit of a loner. I've always felt like an outsider, and because I didn't have a mother or father figure, I brought myself up. I made my own rules, and from the pain of not having a mother there came the great strength of being able to deal with things on a one-to-one basis throughout my life.
37 When I found acting, or when acting found me, it was a liberation. It was a stepping stone into another life, away from a life that I had, and acting was something I was good at, something which was appreciated. That was a great satisfaction in my life.
38 (On his first trip to America and landing Remington Steele (1982)) The trip to America, it was such a great joy to go there with Cassie, to take that leap of faith and go to the New World -- all that nonsense you read about in books. But, again, it was a liberation. In Los Angeles, I rented a car from Rent-A-Wreck, a lime green Pacer, with a cushion, because the springs were coming through, and I got a map and went on my first interview in Hollywood. Somehow, I found my way out to Laurel Canyon. I got up to the top of Mulholland Drive and the car broke down, blew up. I did eventually get to the interview and saw a casting director from Mary Tyler Moore Productions. Boom! They were looking for "Remington Steele". The last thing I was looking for was a TV series. I went to America thinking I was going to work with Martin Scorsese. Taxi Driver (1976), I'd seen about 10 times and Mean Streets (1973); that's where my brain was at. I was going to do movies. But I needed work. I went through several more interviews and then Cassie and I came home to Wimbledon. Then, the call came: would I return for a screen test? And it was, 'My God, what have we done? What have we done? What are we going to do?' Panic, panic, panic. Don't panic! We'll go to America. We'll take the kids to America. So Cass, the two kids and I hopped on a plane and went to America.
39 Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) was a wonderful, beautiful ray of sunshine in my career. For the first time, I was in a studio picture and I was working with wonderful actors who were all working at the top of their game. It allowed me to do comedy and play a character who was viewed as a jerk.
40 (1997 quote on his career) I've been very lucky in my life. Very lucky. I have been able to go through quite a few lives and still retain a certain identity and love of life. I have a new life, a new woman, a new baby. I also have a new realization, as a man and as an actor: This is where you belong. It's a great feeling, knowing you don't have to prove yourself or step on tippy toes to be seen or be heard. Just to be comfortable in who you are.
41 I've been identified with James Bond or Thomas Crown for so long - suave, elegant, sophisticated men in suits. It's like you've been giving the same performance for 20 years.
42 [2005] A few years ago I would have said I could imagine playing James Bond in a more ferocious way. Like a sort of Quentin Tarantino character - but now, at 52, I am definitely too old.
43 It would have been great to light up and smoke cigarettes, for instance. It would have been great to have the killing a little bit more real and not wussed down. It's all rather bland. I remember doing a sex scene with Halle [Halle Berry] - I mean frolicking in the bed - and there was director Lee Tamahori right under the sheets with us. But the way we ended up doing it was almost like the old days in Hollywood - kissing the girl but still having your feet on the floor.
44 It's related to acting really. I wish I had his career. I remember being in Remington Steele (1982) and seeing Bruce Willis go out there and just do it. I thought, "He's making movies and I'm still here". I just remember that. I remember, ironically, in 1986, I remember going into the old La Scala in Malibu. Bruce was there with Demi [Demi Moore], I had just been offered the Bond in '86 and he said to me, "Well done, man, you got out, way to go." I said, "Thanks, Bruce". Of course, two months later I was high and dry without any Bond in my life or even "Remington Steele". The next thing I see him and he's off doing his feature films. I always wanted to do movies. I've stopped trying to pick myself. Hopefully, you reach a point in life where you leave yourself alone and make peace with your shortcomings, whatever they may be. Education is something for me. I left school at fifteen, sixteen, so I'm always feeling like I got to catch up, got to catch up, got to catch up. That's something that, you know, you find yourself in a meeting and you're like, oh boy, we're going into deep waters. I haven't read that piece of literature, that's a piece of information I should have known.
45 [on success] I've worked for it, and I wanted it. I had good luck and a bit of talent somewhere in the back pocket that I could kind of polish and nurture, but I dreamt and wished for all of this, then you get all of that and you've just got to show up and work. Hopefully you can stay at the table.
46 There's nothing like going off and doing a film in Nigeria, Papua New Guinea or Santa Fe, it's the best and most exhilarating. I mean it sorts the men from the boys, really, where you have to figure out who really wants to do it and who's good at their job. When you go off to distant locations, especially if they're tough, it weeds those people out, but hopefully you don't have to weed anybody out, because you've got everybody on board who really wants to go out and work hard - fourteen-, sixteen-, eighteen-hour days in the wilderness, in a great city or some backwater, but those are the best.
47 [on Seraphim Falls (2006)] I've always wanted to do a western, growing up as a boy in Ireland watching cowboys and Indians. When I left and went to London, Clint Eastwood came into my life with all of the great films that he made, and then of course I got my education in cinema and John Ford. The Irish are very much steeped in the cowboy genre, and historically of course we have the great rift of the civil war. Shooting the film entirely on location in Santa Fe enhanced my performance, because it's just you and the landscape. This is a story of two very hollow men, men who have lost everything in life due to war. There's nowhere to hide in a story like this and nowhere to hide as an actor. So you just hope you've done your homework well and that you've understood the story correctly and leave the rest to chance. It was a physically tough shoot in the sense that you are down in Santa Fe, it's got an elevation and my character is being pursued throughout the film, so I was constantly running, just being pursued on foot or by horseback. And the condition was very cold or extremely hot.
48 [on Casino Royale (2006)] I always wanted to go back, because it's the blueprint of Bond's character. It's the one where Fleming [Ian Fleming] really painted in the details of what Bond was about, so I was disappointed that it didn't happen, but you can't go around with that in your heart. It's all such a game really, and you win some, you lose some, you're there, you're not there. Getting the part of Bond and playing the part of Bond was a blessing and a curse, which I think [Sean Connery] has spoken about, and I'm sure Daniel [Daniel Craig] is just getting the full taste of right now. So, you know, one can really only look at the blessings in life.
49 [on Casino Royale (2006)] I'm looking forward to it like we're all looking forward to it. Daniel Craig is a great actor and he's going to do a fantastic job.
50 I was young, frivolous, and full of abandon - a hippie with long hair down to my shoulders and a little goatee beard. Why? Because I thought I was gay. But no, I'm not gay.
51 I think Daniel [Daniel Craig] is a very fine actor. These are rocky waters, but I think he will have the last laugh. You get twisted some way or another if you throw yourself into it. There's going to be mishaps.
52 [on George Lazenby] George seems to be an unhappy camper about Bond. He gets pissy and spits the dummy out. Tim [Timothy Dalton] was fantastic. He really had the balls to go out there and play it on the nose - Ian Fleming undiluted. But where were the laughs? Sean [Sean Connery] was brilliant, he played it dead on the money. And Roger [Roger Moore] really made it his own and went for the laughs. I think those two were the best.
53 People should be allowed to marry and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage. I think the rest is censorship and conflict and really no one else's business.
54 [on the widely criticized federal government response to Hurricane Katrina] This man called President Bush [George W. Bush] has a lot to answer for. I don't know if this man is really taking care of America. This government has been shameful.
55 You're not even allowed to show a bloody nipple. It's pathetic. What Bond needs is a good, palpable killing sequence and a good sex scene - and it doesn't have to be graphic, you can use your imagination. We had a good one in The Thomas Crown Affair (1999) - a really classy, sexy scene.
56 I was trained as an actor and I was led to believe that I had a number of performances in me. The fact that I've just given the same performance, well, maybe . . . If I can get away with it, why not? But I've reached a point now where I'd better start trying to find some performances and challenge myself.
57 It never felt real to me. I never felt I had complete ownership over Bond. Because you'd have these stupid one-liners - which I loathed - and I always felt phony doing them. I'd look at myself in the suit and tie and think, "What the heck am I doing here?" Such sentiments were nothing new. That was always the frustrating thing about the role. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson play it so safe. The pomposity and rigmarole that they put directors through is astounding . . . I can do anything I want to do now. I'm not beholden to them or anyone. I'm not shackled by some contracted image.
58 It never made it in to the papers, but I've had my face sliced open by a stuntman and a knee injury. But it's all part and parcel of being Bond.
59 I have nothing against Republicans, but this government has made decisions which we are to suffer the consequences of for a long, long time. You want to have faith in your leaders but it's very hard to have faith in President George W. Bush. Look at what he's done to the environment and this savage war that has started. You speak up as an actor and people will shoot you down hard and fast. But you don't speak as an actor. You speak as a man, a working actor with a family.
60 When you look at Ian Fleming's work, it's there on the page. The martinis, the drugs, the cigarettes, the casino, the blood on the hands. But they never went there. Hopefully, they will go there with Daniel [Daniel Craig]. They have the product, they have the man, and I'm sure they will.
61 [on former James Bond George Lazenby] George is just an angry, old, pissed-off guy. He was never an actor, but some pissed-off Aussie who doesn't know how to show his feminine side. I met him, and he's got that kind of brittle edge to him.
62 [March 2004] They're too scared. They feel they have to top themselves in a genre which is just spectacle and a huge bang for your buck. But I think you can have your cake and eat it. You can have real character work, a character storyline and a thriller aspect and all kinds of quips, asides, the explosions and the women. We're just saturated with too many overblown action films with no plot. That's ludicrous. It's so damn crazy! That's absolutely sheer lunacy because "Casino Royale" is the blueprint of the Bond character. You find out more about James Bond in that book than in any of the other books. I would love to do a fifth Bond and then bow out, but if this last one is to be my last, then so be it. My contract is up. They can do it or not.
63 Being an actor in Hollywood involves lots of things beyond acting. Charm really helps. And it's a good idea to incorporate a little Bond into all your dealings.
64 Bond is an enigma. He's smooth and bigger than life, but he's vague as a personality. It's a little like doing a period piece. Look, I'm thankful, the role made me an international star. I've been in the backwaters of Papua New Guinea and heard, "Hey, Bond."
65 To my eye, women get sexier around 35. They know a thing or two, and knowledge is always alluring.
66 I know most actors say otherwise, but I like sex scenes. Bond was supposed to be this great lover, but I always found the love scenes in those movies a little dull. It's lovely to work out the fantasy of it all in celluloid and then go home to my wife.
67 There was only one Bond for me, and it was Sean Connery. That made the role daunting.
68 . . . there's that lovely line from that wonderful epic picture that I made called Grey Owl (1999) where they say to Archie Belaney, "A man becomes what he dreams. You have dreamed well." Part of the dreams go back to my childhood and when I left Ireland in 1964, I discovered the cinema. One of the first films I saw was Goldfinger (1964) - I didn't want to be James Bond but the seed of cinema and pictures was sown there in Putney High Street. And then I discovered Clint Eastwood and Steve McQueen and the movies.
69 And certainly in those dark days, in the '50s in Ireland, if you were a single parent living in that society, you were somewhat shamed and stigmatized. I can certainly relate it to my parents, especially my mother. The old man took to the hills and my mother never saw him again, and suddenly you are spoken about in the Sunday service in church, never directly but they would bring up the issue of being a single parent and of marriage falling apart.
70 I think that all the films I've ever made are personal, even James Bond, because it's so much of myself, so much of who I am as a man and as an actor. You have to invest yourself in every character that you portray.
71 [on why, after the 1987 demise of Remington Steele (1982), he appeared in a series of movies that were box-office flops] I had to make a living. I had the mortgage to pay, I had the school fees to pay. I had bread and butter to put on the table. You know your worth as an actor, but you have to get a job.
72 [about the movie industry] There's too many people in seats of power who just haven't got a clue what they're doing. They're bean counters, and it just pisses me off because consequently our kids go to see this crap movie . . . there's nothing with meaningfulness.
73 [on why he thinks he would have regretted winning the James Bond role in 1986] It's a role better suited to someone who is in his 40s, old enough to have the confidence and the sophistication and strength to be able to stand there and just let the moment sit. Bond is a man with the greatest of confidence. And playing that takes practice. In 1986 I think I was 33 or something like that, and I still looked like a baby. Finally, I'm growing into this face of mine. That takes time.
74 [about his deceased wife, Cassandra Harris] Cassie has made me the man I am, the actor I am, the father I am. She's forever embedded in every fiber of my being.
75 [on his good looks] I don't see myself as the "Hunk of the Month".
76 [on his marriage to Cassandra Harris] Our marriage gives me a stability that makes me feel that I can tackle the world.
