Pierce Brosnan’s first breakthrough role was Remington Steele aka Ben Pearson in the 1982 detective series ‘Remington Steele.’ He lured the American viewers with his Irish charm and masculinity radiating from every cell of his body. His chemistry with co-star Stephanie Zimbalist is just incredible. Brosnan continues to maintain that dexterity with guns and women even today.
In 1986, Brosnan got his first offer to play the legendary British spy James Bond. But his contract with ‘Remington Steel’ producers hindered him. Brosnan played popular characters in TV shows throughout the ’80s. In 1995, he finally stepped into the shoes of 007, taking over the legacy of Sean Connery and Roger Moore, with the Bond vehicle ‘Goldeneye.’ He reprised his role in ‘Tomorrow Never Dies (1997),’ ‘The World is Not Enough (1999)’ and ‘Die Another Day (2002).’
Though the Bond franchise cemented Brosnan’s reputation as the superspy of Hollywood, the actor never let the character take over his identity and continued appearing in several comic and dramatic roles throughout his career, displaying incredible versatility. He surprised the viewers with movies like ‘The Thomas Crown Affair,’ ‘Laws of Attraction,’ ‘Mrs. Doubtfire,’ and ‘Mamma Mia!’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Pierce Brosnan movie or TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Pierce Brosnan films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Pierce Brosnan movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
