Stallone, Brosnan and Mel Gibson are 3 of my favorite actors of all time.

Michael Douglas and Nick Cage would be good for Expendables 4 as well.

I hear this pop up whenever the “Idris-Elba-For-James-Bond” conversation comes up, as it would be a way to explain away any sudden race change in the casting. As far as I understand it, the “00″ number is just that – a number. If Bond gets killed or retires, some other agent will then assume the number.

He also worked with John Mctiernan as well as Antonio Banderas and Arnold Schwarzenegger. They should also get Don Johnson as well.

Playing with the eyebrows isn’t going to work Mr. Brosnan.

Brosnan would be a welcome addition to the Axis of Wrinkles. He shows up with a special cream called “007″, that helps to alleviate the effects of arthritis, smooths wrinkles & makes you more bloodthirsty than ever. To kill like a teenager again, apply a little “007″ where it counts the most…!

He could also be the villain, called the Unexpendable One, & he’d be a Double Agent, working inside the Expendables’ camp…

Bwwoooomm!

Especially if the films followed suit.

Fleming himself only mentions five 00 agents in all. According to Moonraker, James Bond is the most senior of three 00 agents; the two others were 008 and 0011. The three men share an office and a secretary named Loelia Ponsonby. Later novels feature two more 00 agents; 009 is mentioned in Thunderball and 006 is mentioned in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and GoldenEye as an alias for Alec Trevelyan. Other authors have elaborated and expanded upon the 00 agents. While they presumably have been sent on dangerous missions as Bond has, little has been revealed about most of them. Several have been named, both by Fleming and other authors, along with passing references to their service records, which suggest that agents are largely recruited (as Bond was) from the British military’s special forces.

In the films, the 00 section is a discrete area of MI6, whose agents report directly to M (The World Is Not Enough, which introduces a special insignia for the 00 Section). Bond’s fellow 00 agents appear receiving briefings in Thunderball and The World Is Not Enough. The latter film shows a woman in one of the 00 chairs. In Thunderball, there are nine chairs for the 00 agents; Moneypenny says every 00 agent in Europe has been recalled, not every 00 agent in the world. As with the books, other writers have elaborated and expanded upon the 00 agents in the films and in other media.

In Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels and the derived films, the 00 Section of MI6 is considered the secret service’s elite. A 00 (typically read “Double O”) agent holds a license to kill in the field, at his or her discretion, to complete the mission. The novel Goldfinger establishes that the section routinely has three agents concurrently; the film series, beginning with Thunderball, establishes the number of 00 agents at a minimum of 9, with the likelihood of more.

I thought it was going to be garbage, and YES it was a wet, stinky, four year-old pile of garbage. I can’t believe they got the money to make this 80′s throwback. Pierce Brosnan is too good an actor to be in this crap.

Maybe you should have a look at Seraphim Falls or Bag of Bones. And at his current age, he possesses the right amount of cragginess to fit in.

That alone would make the movie worthwhile

He is seen as a lighter type of character, I think there is more to him.

Just to list a few roles on both sides of the line:
Remington Steele
The Deceivers
Mama Mia
The Matador
Mrs. Doubtfire
James Bond movies
Mars Attacks
Robinson Crusoe
Percy Jackson
World’s End

There are some other (European?) films/TV I am unfamiliar with.

So I dont know what mold Brosnan has been cast in since he appears to be all over the board with role types.
