Pierce Brosnan favours Gerard Butler and Colin Salmon as James Bond #6

15-Feb-2005 • Casino Royale

Pierce Brosnan was his usual charming self when he caught up with his favourite Daily Mirror (UK) gossip columnists.

His date for the night was his son Sean, 19, who is studing acting at the Central School Of Speech And Drama in London.

Pierce - who very kindly said to Jessica when the flash on the camera took time to warm up: "I'll just stand here and stroke your back while we wait" - revealed he wasn't serious about tipping Colin Farrell as the next Bond star.

"That was only a joke. I can't really see that happening," he said.

"I think Gerard Butler would be great. Colin Salmon would be brilliant but they don't have the bottle.

"I know what you're like - you'll say to the next Bond star that he's the best one ever. You won't be loyal to me!"

Thanks to `Mathewww` for the alert.
