Moneypenny Monday: Pierce Brosnan

Six Degrees of James Bond

When Daniel Craig was announced as the new Bond, I was furious at first because I was happy with Pierce as Bond. I wondered, How could such a handsome 007 be replaced by a blond, erm...less-hot Englishman? Then I did some research. Apparently, Craig is a spitting image of Hoagy Carmichael, whom Ian Fleming once wrote as the physical model for James Bond. Also, Craig looks more like the illustration of Bond authorized by Fleming. Now, I'm still not fully convinced because the filmic Bond is admittedly different from the literary Bond and that Gerard Butler or Clive Owen would have been more suitable, but I am willing to concede to Sony and EON under one condition--they must dye Craig's hair.

Well, as another Bond era draws to a close, it is just fitting that we make if-only-he-was-twenty-years-younger Pierce Brosnan as this week's chosen one.

  1. Brosnan starred with Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire, which will have a sequel next year.
  2. Williams was with Michael Vartan in One Hour Photo.
  3. Vartan played Drew Barrymore's love interest and Literature teacher in Never Been Kissed.
  4. Brittany Murphy played Barrymore's best friend in Riding in Cars with Boys.
  5. Murphy was in Girl, Interrupted with Angelina Jolie.
  6. Jolie played the title character in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider opposite Daniel Craig.
