Brosnan on Bond: "There Will be Someone Else"

Pierce Brosnan John Kerry isn't the only one making concession speeches. Reuters says Bond star Pierce Brosnan closed the book on his Bond tenure Tuesday night.

"They contracted me for four [films], it was a great time, a great 10 years, but there will be someone else, of that I'm sure," Brosnan told reporters at the London premiere of "After the Sunset."

A successor to Brosnan has been a popular debate topic for months. Names such as Hugh Jackman, Jude Law and others have been bandied about, but Brosnan gives his well-shaken thumbs-up to "Alexander" star Colin Farrell.

Bond producers recently pushed the next Bond film back to 2006 because a director hadn't been tapped. That delay was inadvertently fortuitous -- now the big-wigs have plenty of time to search for a new star.
