* '''Creator/PierceBrosnan''': widely considered the definitive Film/JamesBond after the trope namer. Even if the Bond movies he did after ''Film/GoldenEye'' weren't that well written, Brosnan in the very least made them watchable, if not more so. And then there's [[Series/RemingtonSteele his]] [[Film/TheThomasCrownAffair other]] [[Film/TheTailorOfPanama work]].

** He got the part in ''The Petrified Forest'' because he'd played the role on Broadway, and was so good that leading man Leslie Howard wouldn't make the movie unless they cast Bogie. He of course nailed it so well that he immediately became the go-to guy to play tough villains in Hollywood until ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' bailed him out of his TypeCasting.
