Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan
April 27th, 2005 7:53AM

According to Dame Judy Dench, Pierce Brosnan will not be replaced in the next Bond flick, Casino Royale.

Ho-hum. I loved Brosnan's Bond (even in the clunkier entries), but he's long in the tooth at this point. One of the many reasons I resent Roger Moore's tenure is that he cemented the superspy as perpetually middle-aged in many people's minds. Bond's mostly in his 30s in the books. Can't we once again have an actor who reflects that? Getting a younger actor won't solve all the series' many problems, or automatically make it hip or relevant again, but it'd be a step in the right direction.

I hope Casino Royale doesn't end up being Brosnan's A View to a Kill. When I saw the latter in the theater, I spent most of the time thinking, Wow! Look at grandpa go!
