James Bond SHOCK: Pierce Brosnan admits ‘Bar Goldeneye, my 007 was NEVER good enough’

Back in 1995 Brosnan took over from Timothy Dalton as James Bond after a six year hiatus from the franchise.

The result was one of the greatest 007 films ever in the action-packed, gritty Goldeneye.

But after such an epic opening for his turn as Bond, the next three movies – Tomorrow Never Dıеѕ, The World Is Not Enough and Dıе Another Day – were never quite up to scratch.

Such a view may be close to consensus among Bond fans and now Brosnan himself has admitted it too.

Speaking with Daily Mail, Brosnan said that bar Goldeneye his take on Bond was “never good enough.”

He said: “I was caught between Sean Connery’s Bond and Roger Moore’s Bond, and it was only really in GoldenEye that I did my Bond.”

The 65-year-old also explained how he had “issues for many years” having been dropped from the role, after 2002’s Dıе Another Day, by a teary Barbara Broccoli over the phone.

Nevertheless he’s much more positive about his time as 007 sixteen years since he left the role.

Brosnan said: “Now I just have great feelings about Bond.

“I loved the irony of being an Irishman playing this quintessential English character. I love what it did for me as an actor.”

Brosnan added: “Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond. He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man.

“He will do the next movie, and then I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond.”

“I’d be happy to see him do it. You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it – that’s what makes Bond.”
