Another Irish Bond

Post by capt_buzzard »

Dublin born, Irishman and Hollywood heart-throb, Colin Farrell has just being endorsed by Pierce Brosnan as his 007 replacement.

Sean Connery was the real 007 James Bond. And he was a Scotsman. :-6

That sounds like a good pick. I wonder if he can pull off the sophistication though.

NO. He is not as popular in Ireland at all. We prefer Pierce Brosnan. Colin is another James Dean to many young Irish kids.

Another Irish Bond

Post by CVX »

BEIJING, Nov. 9 (Xinhuanet) -- Irish actor Colin Farrell says he is not interested in becoming the next James Bond. Working as Alexander the Great seems to be enough.

In an interview with Reuters on Sunday to discuss his soon to be released film "Alexander," Farrell, 28, was asked about a suggestion by the outgoing James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, last week that he get the job because "he'll eat the head off them all" , China Radio International reported Tuesday.

Farrell feigned outrage at the thought of becoming the sixth James Bond in the series, joking he was shocked by Brosnan's suggestion and if he got the job, he just might employ an Irish accent to confuse fans of the suave British agent.

"The idea of me playing James Bond got into the press, but it is not true. I would not like to do it ... they should find someone the audience has no history with,' Farrell said.

Farrell stars in the upcoming Oliver Stone film "Alexander," which is slated to opened in late November. It was a role that had plenty of action for him as he broke an ankle and a wrist while filming battle scenes on location in Thailand.

Finding a successor to Brosnan as agent 007, the character who has sold nearly $4 billion in tickets since "Dr. No" hit the screens 42 years ago, has been the subject of intense speculation for months.

Brosnan fulfilled his four-film contract with "Die Another Day" in 2002. The next film is not slated to come out until 2006. Others names mentioned as possibilities to put on Bond's trademark tuxedo have been Hugh Jackman and Jude Law.
