Brosnan: “One phone call, that’s all it took!”
Not directly related to gaming, but Pierce Brosnan, as James Bond, has starred in several movies that were turned into games (actually, all but Die Another Day), which spanned the PlayStation, Nintendo 64, PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Xbox. He’s now learned that his services as James Bond would no longer be required.
“One phone call, that’s all it took!” the 52-year-old actor tells Entertainment Weekly magazine in its Aug. 19 issue. “You know, the movie career for me really started with Bond,” Brosnan acknowledged.
“I thought. … 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. So there was a sense of liberation.” Brosnan says he’s grateful to have had the role, but adds: “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.”
