Pierce Brosnan is the consummate action hero. In his latest film, “The November Man,” he brings us another spy thriller, both as lead actor and executive producer. Fusion Live spoke to Brosnan about doing his own stunts, his Instagram stardom, and of course, what it was like to get the call about Bond.
“It came into my life the first time and then went out of it again in ’86. … The job has always come with its own drama for me,” Brosnan said of the iconic character. “I knew that life was going to change. I knew that the challenge of getting this role and the challenge of getting it right — those shoes were big to fill. So it was daunting.”
So once James Bond, always James Bond? Pierce says yes: “For me, it’s the gift that keeps giving… I cherish my time as James Bond.”
Watch the full interview to see how Brosnan manages to save the world with as much swagger as actors in their 20s.
“The November Man” is in theaters now.
