Brosnan Rules Out Farrell as '007' Replacement

4 May 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has dismissed fellow Irish actor Colin Farrell as a suitable new 007. Brosnan has reportedly hung up the secret agent's trademark tuxedo for the last time, and has touted a number of actors as potential replacements - including Clive Owen and Colin Salmon. But he insists Hollywood hellraiser Farrell wouldn't make an appropriate Bond. The actor told British television show This Morning last week, "Colin? No. I think he's a great actor, but I don't think he's quite right for Bond." British bookmakers Ladbrokes have however given Farrell two-to-one odds of landing the Bond role. A spokesman explains, "He has the right image for Bond and a way with the ladies." »
