Best known for his portrayal of James Bond in the British spy film series. Breaking out into the performing world in 1976 in a production of Wait Until Dark, Brosnan participated in a handful of stage plays before making his way onto both the big and small screens in the 80’s.
Then Brosnan landed in a breakthrough role in the NBC drama, Remington Steele. Over the next decade, the actor continued to appear in numerous projects, Brosnan was eventually cast as the secret agent, James Bond in the British spy movie series in 1995a role which he’d ultimately reprise throughout the years in a string of four films. He first appeared in the initial installment of the series, GoldEye in November 1995; he’d eventually return for its next segments, Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2000). Having received a handful of awards and nominations for his portrayal of agent 007, his role in the series is considered to be one of his best performances to this date.
The post-Bond career has not been kind to Pierce Brosnan, with his latest outings leaving audiences neither shaken nor stirred. IT started promising, in an impressive lead role in 2005’s Matador. But things soon started spiraling out of control. From taking baffling comedic roles like in 2008’s Mamma Mia! To a weary performance in 2014’s The November Man, with a string of forgettable performances in between, it seems the former 007 has lost his spark.
