Pierce Brosnan On a Gay James Bond: ‘Sure. Why Not?’

Pierce Brosnan On a Gay James Bond: 'Sure. Why Not?'

Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan was interviewed by Details magazine this week, and the idea of a gay Bond got brought up. 

"Sure," he said. "Why not? [Pauses thoughtfully] Actually, I don’t know how it would work. I don’t think Barbara [Broccoli, the James Bond producer] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing."

Brosnan also talked about the much more likely possibility of a black actor playing James Bond, as rumors have swirled around Idris Elba following Daniel Craig.

"Idris Elba certainly has the physicality, the charisma, the presence. But I think Daniel [Craig] will be there for a while yet."
