Pierce Brosnan is an Irish actor born in 1953, working since the late '70s/Early '80s.

Brosnan seems to particularly like playing flawed spies and thieves, but he has played a variety of roles, not always with the suave sophistication he is noted for. He played Series/RemingtonSteele from '82-'87, which was his StarMakingRole. He had to turn down the role of Film/JamesBond while working on the show [[hottip:*: That is to say, he took the role after ''Steele'' was cancelled, but had to drop out after it was brought back, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork because the network wanted to capitalise on on his new found fame as the new Bond.]] He eventually got the role and played it four times : ''Film/GoldenEye'', ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'', ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' and ''Film/DieAnotherDay''.

Aside from Bond, Brosnan has done many other notable movies, such as ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'', the 1999 remake of ''Film/TheThomasCrownAffair'', and ''TheTailorOfPanama'', a film adaptation of John Le Carre's novel in which he basically got to play the anti-Bond.
