Pierce Brosnan: I haven't seen Daniel Craig's attempts at being Bond

28 January 2010 [14:26] - TODAY.AZ
Former Bond hero Pierce Brosnan says he still can't be bothered to watch the attempts of his blonde successor, Daniel Craig, filling his 007 action boots.

Admitting the tensions, Brosnan says he skipped James Bond films ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’ at the cinema after his own four film run as the M16 agent came to a screeching halt in 2002 with his last film ‘Die Another Day’.

Brosnan, 56, reveals: "I haven't seen Daniel in the role. I tried watching it on an airplane. I thought 37,000 feet was a good distance to watch it from and it broke down right at the beginning."

"The attendant came and changed it and it broke down a second time, so I figured, 'OK. The Gods must be saying something...' So I never went near it! I just thought, 'Let sleeping dogs lie.’”

Pierce said not even an advance copy DVD of ‘Quantum of Solace' could tempt him to watch Craig in action.   

“I got the Academy screener for the last one and I turned it on for my boys and I left them to it. I didn't go near it", says Brosnan.
