View Full Version : Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.

Alot of people don't realise this, but Timothy Dalton originally signed up to do three Bond films. But apparently EON (Everything or Nothing) paid him not to return in GoldenEye. Why you may ask? Five years before GoldenEye was made, the network ran a animated show called James Bond Jr, a TV series loosely based on the novel of 1967. The show starred James Bond's nephew who coincidentally looked similiar to Pierce Brosnan, the next actor the play 007.
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/6302380510.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpghttp://betty.hypermax.net.au/tomorrowneverdies.jpg

There is of course a possibility that James Bond Jr was modelled on Brosnan, back in 1987 Brosnan was offered the role of Bond but was unavalible so the role was turned over to Timothy Dalton. Perhaps they decided to model 007's nephew on a Bond actor that (At the time) never was.

Anyways, the theory goes Pierce Brosnan was hired to play Bond in GoldenEye as an atempt to capitalise on the success of the TV Show.

Or, Brosnan became available in 1995, and they went with him since he was their original choice.

Hehe yeah, I was gonna point that out. Silly Jarrah

Bond! James Bond Junior!
I used to have a couple of action figures and a video. Didn't think he was really popular though

Roger Moore was the best bond anyway. Brosnan is overrated.

There's certain things I like about Connery, Moore, Brosnan and even Dalton. But not The other dude. What's his name? Lazenby? Yeah.

So yeah, I don't really have a favorite.

For me...it has to be Sean Connery all the way.

VIVA SEAN!!! :D

Personally, I like Pierce Brosnan. He's really good in all of his Bond films, I just find one problem with the newer ones. Technology has been so advanced as of late, that the villains in the new ones threaten the world with a weapon that could be found today. I liked it when the villains threatened the world with some weapon that could never even be thought of.

Sean Connery was the best Bond, though.

James Bond JR had nothing to do with re-activating the Bond franchise with Goldeneye...and no, it was not "loosley" based on Casino Royale...the film, and ESPECIALLY the novel...the film butchered Casino Royale...only a noob to the Bond frachise woul ever like that disgrace.

"Muppet Babies" is a great example of an entire cartoon being "Loosely" based in a sequence of a movie ("The Muppets Take Manhatten")

Once again you're using COINCIDENCE to fuel your crappy theories.

Zarius you miss understand. I never said James Bond Jr was based on Casino Royale, I said it was based on the James Bond Jr novel. Back in 1967 there was a novel called "The Adventures of James Bond Jr 003 1/2" It was about 007's nephew, the son of Captain David Bond. The TV shows bares no resemblence to the novel of 1967, and quite frankly I can find no evidence in any of the Bond films to deney the possibility of James Bond having a nephew, Felix Leiter having a California Beach Boy as a son, and Q having a boy-genius as a grandson. Plus, the Aston Martin DB5 was destroyed in the TV show. Maybe that's why the car in GoldenEye seen onwards has a different licence plate...

I'm simply pointing out how Brosnan looks a little like James Bond Jr. I have nothing against Brosnan, I like him as Bond, but I think George Lazenby is the best.

And yes, for once I agree with you, the Casino Royale movie was a complete a utter piece of garbage, an insult to the book, it's almost as bad as Die Another Day.

Hmm don't know if I'm being controversial here but...

I can't stand Roger Moore, argh!

But I did like Timothy Dalton as Bond, he looked the part and brought a cool dark side to him. I think he was just a litte letdown by the films (which I didn't think were too bad)

Plus I thought OHMSS was an alright film

Jarrah White

His proformance as Q. He destroyed the image that was Desmond's character. Not only that, he already had a title, R. He's been seen as R, credited as R, remembered as R, hence should remain R. And let's face it, he made a hopeless job as Q.

Only because they praise Cleese like he's Jesus simply because he starred in Monty Python and Fawlty Towers.

If Desmond saw Cleese proformance he'd be tossing and turning in his grave.

No, he'd prolly react like that to you not getting off Cleese's case. Dear lord man, you act like John Cleese MURDERED him.

Brodie
04-19-2004, 06:25 PM
And if Dolph Lungred saw Tom Jane as The Punisher, he'd freak too, but only because it wasn't him. Doesn't mean Lungred was better (Because he's ****ing not) just that it isnt him, same with your comment about Desmond. No one wants to see someone else playing them.

With a proformance like that, he might as well have. His role as Q in DAD/EoN is so bad words simply can't describe it.

And on topic, i didn't start this thread to disguess my issues over Cleese, I put it up to disguess the facial simularities between Pierce Brosnan and James Bond Jr.

I actually was a big fan of Desmond's Q, Jarrah. But I think you're going a little far with it is all. he died, it's unfortunate, and they needed somebody to replace him, so they got Cleese as R. Yes, he's not Q, he's R, if you look into it. But anyways, if you don't like John Cleese, that's fine. Just don't act like he killed Desmond or stole his job or anything.
