Brosnan is a Mensch

Pierce Brosnan I don't normally get into gossipy type stuff but I was really struck by this. IMDb has a blurb about Pierce Brosnan sticking up for Daniel Craig, the next James Bond.

Basically Craig has had a bunch of accidents on the set. Added to that is general fan-bashing of Craig, for being unsuitable for the role. Brosnan stepped forward and told reporters he had a host of accidents when he started but they never made it into the papers.

Considering that Brosnan was up for the role, asked for a reasonable amount for the role,and was turned down for someone younger, it was an incredibly menschy thing to do. So there you have it Mr. Brosnan, this writer thinks you are a mensch. --Terrence Ryan

Although Brosnan was not the best Double O by any means, he did a pretty good job. I respect the guy as an actor (especially since he's sticking up for competitor Craig). I recently got a chance to win all the Bond Films from this tv show called Cinemattractions. They review dvds and actually give copies away for answering simple trivia questions. I've already won the Bond set, The Black Dahlia, and 2006 World Series DVD...GO CARDS!!!
