Pierce Brosnan Suggested The Next James Bond Character That Must Excel All Previous Actors

Date June 27, 2018

Pierce Brosnan expressed his opinion on the “Bond” franchise future. The legendary agent 007 said he would like to see Tom Hardy as the next British spy. Meanwhile, Daniel Craig, previously claimed to “take part in other James Bond films only for money,” announced his appearance in the next movie coming out in fall 2019.

Pierce's contribution

Pierce Brosnan is, perhaps, the most memorable James Bond ever filmed. Even though he appeared only in four movies of the series, the 65-year-old Irish actor is regarded as an iconic character in the films about the British spy.


That is why he has the perfect right to speak out about the future of the series.

Next Bond?

Mr. Brosnan mentioned he liked Craig’s play. Pierce admitted Daniel fits the role just perfectly being “an incredible Bond:”

He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man.


However, due to Craig’s recent announcement, he is not quite satisfied with the played role. That is why Pierce spoke about possible future substitution for Daniel that is not going to be worse by any means:

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.


The actor misses his Bond roles. He also claimed it took him some time to recover after he was dropped from the series.


Daniel's negligence

Unlike Brosnan, Daniel Craig seems not to be enjoying the spy’s role. After his last Bond film Spectre, the 50-year-old British actor claimed he would only film in the next episode for money.

However, despite previously announcing about “slashing his wrists” rather than playing James Bond, Craig will appear in the next, 25th, episode of the legendary series.


We have no idea why the two iconic Bond actors have such different attitude towards the role but hope the next person to play the agent 007 will devote all of his efforts to such a beloved movie character.
