Pierce Brosnan Is A Man On The Street, Plus James Bond Poll

Pierce Brosnan has been keeping quite busy since his time as James Bond ended. He has appeared in The Ghost Writer, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and Remember Me in 2010. Here are some photos of the former 007 from GQ. I hope you enjoy these photos (by Ben Watts). Pierce Brosnan looks like one of those men born to wear a suit.

I think that Pierce Brosnan has such a kind of class. It was a great Bond I think.

Brilliant post- I love James Bond! Hope you are having a good week : )

jemina said...

I VOTE for Sean Connery, but I've gotta admit that Pierce Brosnan is the dapper guy indeed, xoxo

M.Lane said...

Great post! I think Pierce is a very elegant man and especially so in light of having a lot of sadness in his life off screen.

I rank Bonds all time as...
Connery
Craig
Brosnan
Lazenby
Dalton
Moore

Moore would have been much better if he had not fallen [with no fault of his own] into a VERY bad time for JB scripts and goofy plotting.

Love this selections....Pierce Brosnan is amazing
great post

SogniSorrisi said...

Pierce looks great in these photos! I think he was a good Bond but his Bond was also written kind of cheesy. I like that Craig's Bond is a little darker.

And I guess Sean Connery is the consummate Bond although my husband has always like Roger Moore in the role.

C.K. Dexter Haven said...

I voted for Connery.

BTW, that Roger Moore picture is from The Saint... ;)

Audrey Allure said...

Pierce looks great for his age!

Laura Tenshi said...

I think these pictures are so fun. Love the concept, man in an expensive suit enjoying hot dogs and beer. My favorite Bond was Roger Moore, he's very charismatic

Kimmy said...

Pierce captured my heart as the elegant art thief in The Thomas Crown Affair even more so than as James Bond.
He is cultured, refined, handsome and stylish..a winning combination in my book!
Love your topics by the way, cheers.

I LOVE this post! Pierce Brosnan is the coolest! I know that it was rumored that he was angry because the producers of Remington Steele wouldn't let him out of his contract to play Bond (hence the short lived Timothy Dalton)but I think the timing was just right when he finally did get to play Bond. He was older and much more mature.

I voted for my all time favorite, Sean Connery, but Pierce runs a very close second. Thanks for those beautiful pics!

James said...

I read somewhere that Roger Moore was more like what Ian Fleming invisioned Bond to be. I still like Sean the best.

Erika said...

Ooh, what a fabulous editorial. J'adore Pierce Brosnan!! :)

Clare said...

Peirce Brosnan is one of those actors who makes me squeal with delight.
As to the suit, he looks great and the camera loves him.

However, the wardrobe designer and other crew for REMINGTON STEELE stated that Brosnan preferred the days when his character wore more casual stuff like jeans and sneakers.

As to the poll, I can't make an informed choice since I've only seen two Bond movies in their entirety. Of course, I would choose the Brosnan Bond, because in my imagination he's a big budget Remington Steele.

This mans style is timeless...

Taj Acosta said...

He looks great! I remember my Ma used to have the biggest crush on him growing up! He is quite handsome

ellie said...

always Sean C. for 007.

Pierece always looks as if he jumped out of the band box.

Keith:
Now this is a bit hard...

Connery (to me) is the quintessential BOND (best described from the original Fleming novels), but Brosnan did a very respectible job as well. Moore was too "gadget-heavy" and Lazenby HAD potential.

Granted they ALL look great in a suit or tux!
I am pleasantly suprised with Daniel Craig (from the first Tomb Raider flick)...he became a favorite of mine because Brosnan left.

So..if I should list them in (my) order of favorites, here goes:

1-Connery
2-Brosnan
3-Craig
4-Dalton
5-Moore
6-Lazenby (only because he did ONE movie)

And you will make sure that this poll is "Shaken...not stirred", right Keith?

Stay Cool!

If i saw that man on the street I would diiieee! ...of happiness :)

Ce qui m'inspire said...

I love the pinstripe suit on him. I haven't really watched (any) Bond movies, but I think the role suited Brosnan, he looks great in a tux. Course, Connery is absolutely classic... I don't think I can't vote on this one!

Ce qui m'inspire

Holly said...

Thanks for the note. I so love Pierce in a very cool suit. He so knows how to make the most of it.

You're right... he looks absolutely gorgeous in suits. xoxo

Josie said...

I love this post to DEATH. I literally grew up on James Bond movies (I've seen every one several times) and have always thought that Pierce was born for suits. What a stunning shoot!

Oh I agree! He looks good in a suit! :)

Participated in your poll too! :)

knk said...

i personally feels

Pierce Brosnan is the best of all James bonds

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I've had a thing for Pierce since "Remington Steele". He's so suave and my fave Bond (Roger Moore is close).

Syed (dapper kid) said...

Brosnan is pretty much the modern English gent! And as much as I love Goldeneye, Sean Connery will forever be THE Bond.

Fabíola Beltrão said...

he´s a good actor, in all ways


lol



kisses

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i didn't realize there were so many bonds. i think pierce looks great in GQ. the man hardly ages!

brohammas said...

Pierce may have in deed been born to wear a suit, but this in no way makes him the best Bond. Watching his films I am convinced he could not beat my little sister in a slap fight. Now Craig on the other hand, he would kick my trash.
BEst Bond by far is in between, Connery my friends. It is and always has been, Connery.

le0pard13 said...

I've said it many a time. I'm a Sean Connery man (and have voted that way). Thanks, Keith

My Republic of Fashion said...

I absolutely agree with you that pierce brosnan looks like he was born in a suit. He is looking good here!:)SarahD

sweetpralinemadness said...

I've always had the BIGGEST crush on Pierce Brosnan. I loved him in Thomas Crown Affair. He was dripping with class. My husband and I are HUGE 007 fans. We own them all and I have watched them a zillion times. I never get tired of Bond. My favorite Bond has been Sean Connery for years then Pierce. However, I'm starting to really like Daniel Craig. He's so opposite of all the Bond characters. I think I like Daniel Craig and then Sean Connery now. Sorry Pierce, I still love you and your style. Never was a Timothy Dalton fan but I did like the set up of Licence to Kill.

My favorite post yet. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend.

Winnie said...

He was definitely a great Bond!

Fuji Files said...

Pierce is SO hot. I had such a crush on him in Mrs. Doubtfire lol

Zuzana said...

Oh, Pierce looks so good still and he is Irish too.;) I remember him best from Remington Steele.;)
I am not sure if i am late with my vote, but my favorite Bond is Timothy, I have always loved his looks and think it is a shame he only got to play Bond twice.;)

Dusk said...

Oh my goodness! How did I miss this????? I am a Bond fanatic!!

I own all the films, the books too (original Fleming ones).

I do love Pierce, I do I do! but... Sean... that velvet voice, that swarthy sex appeal, that take charge manner, his danger...swoon... he is for me THE Bond.

Although PIerce Brosnan too had this. Daniel Craig is just Bland, James Bland. Shaken but not particularly stirring.

I loved the Roger Moore era movies but oh my God, he was far too old and unbelievable for the role BUT... this realisation only hit me a few years ago, watching all the movies.

Dusty said...

Oh, how Mister Brosnan makes my heart skip several beats! He is delish! Plus, it's nice to see landmarks in my old neighborhood in some of the places he's modeling in.
