Pierce Brosnan: I don't care who will play James Bond

Pierce Brosnan doesn't care who is cast to be the next James Bond.

Since 2006, 007 has been played by Daniel Craig to critical acclaim. He has starred in five movies - Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre and No Time to Die.

2021's No Time to Die was confirmed as his last outing as Bond before it was released, which naturally catalysed speculation about who might replace him.

Names like Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston and Henry Cavill have been mentioned over the last few years.

Brosnan, who played Bond in Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day, has no preference as to who is selected.

“Who should do it?” Brosnan said in a conversation with GQ.

“I don’t care.

“It’ll be interesting to see who they get, who the man shall be. Whoever he be, I wish him well.”

Who will be the next James Bond?

Elba has long been the front runner to play the spy, but he recently appeared to rule himself out of the running, apparently to focus on a series of Luther films.

“It's incredible, it's like graduating. The television show ran a natural course, we did five seasons and each one of them shape-shifted but kept an audience captivated for 10 years," Elba said of Luther, which will be turned into a movie.

"The graduation point is where we get to take that Luther character and elevate him to the big screen with a wider spectrum of scale, stories we can tell, maybe even take it international in terms of who Luther is. It's a huge achievement for all of us who have written it.

"Also what I'm happy about is that I saw the film, we shot the film, and if you've never seen an episode of Luther you can still be invited into the first chapter of the film series, I'm hoping that this movie literally becomes my Bond, everyone talks about Bond but, for me, it's Luther.”

The favourite to play Bond remains Cavill, while other actors in the frame include Hardy, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rege-Jean Page, Kit Harrington, James Norton and Riz Ahmed.
