Pierce Brosnan and Craig Ferguson Talk James Bond's Body Hair (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 9th 2011 5:00AM
Pierce Brosnan, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'With Pierce Brosnan on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), the conversation inevitably turned to James Bond, which he portrayed from 1995 to 2002.

Despite saying that he virtually jumped from television series 'Remington Steele' to Bond -- when apparently Geoff fell in love with him -- it was an eight-year gap during which he starred in several films.

But it always comes back to Bond. Craig Ferguson noted that current Bond Daniel Craig has no body hair, and wondered how that works for the secret agent. "I don't know where you keep your secret documents and stuff if you don't have at least some hair," he said. "Sean Connery was covered in hair."

Pierce BrosnanCould a 'Remington Steele 2.0' be in the future? Maybe.

Pierce Brosnan is developing a new series with Sony Pictures TV about "an international operative and problem solver for hire," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sound a little similar to the former thief-turned-private detective?

Though the former James Bond will most likely not play the main character, he will appear in the show. This would be Brosnan's first regular TV role since 'Remington Steele,' which ran from 1982 to 1987.

Julianna Margulies Talks 'The Good Wife' and Being a Working Mom

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 16th 2010 3:30PM
'The Good Wife' is hot. Don't believe us? Just ask its star, Emmy winner Julianna Margulies.

Margulies, who has already nabbed a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild award for her portrayal of Alicia Florrick on the CBS legal drama, claims tonight's episode (airing at 10PM) is the series' hottest one to date.

While promoting her new film, 'City Island,' in which she plays Joyce Rizzo, the crass wife of Vince (Andy Garcia), Margulies saved time to talk about 'The Good Wife,' her career aspirations for her son and the secret to being a successful working mother.

On 'The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson' (weeknights, 12:35AM ET on CBS), Pierce Brosnan stopped by to discuss his upcoming thriller 'The Ghost Writer.'

But, things took a decidedly awkward turn when Brosnan mentioned the film's director is none other than Roman Polanski, who was convicted of rape in 1977 and arrested by Swiss police last year because of his outstanding U.S. warrant.

Pierce Brosnan Shares Strange Fan Encounter on 'Regis and Kelly' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 5th 2010 2:30PM
No doubt many celebrities have stories of strange run-ins with fans, but the encounter that Pierce Brosnan shared on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) surely ranks among the strangest.

According to Brosnan, he was drinking in a pub in Dublin when an appreciative young fan shook his hand. After doing so, the man drew back his hand, stared at it, and said, "This is the closest I'll ever get to Halle Berry's ass."

The Daily Show: July 15, 2008 - VIDEOS

Pierce BrosnanAmerica's terrorist watch list just hit the 1,000,000 mark. Yay! Sort of. Not really. Jon pointed out that Nelson Mandela was only recently removed from the watch list. He said it in a way like Mandela had no business being on the watch list on the first place, which I thought was a bit unfair. Sure, striking Mandela from the list was a move that probably should have happened over twenty years ago and his motivation was anti-apartheid, but once a guy has been the leader of a sabotage against his own government and military, that kind of makes the big boys of other countries nervous about having him around too. I'm just saying.

Robinson Crusoe pilot coming to NBC

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 25th 2008 2:40PM
brosan as crusoeNBC is going classic, with a twist. The network has ordered 13 episodes of a new drama series based on the Daniel Defoe classic Robinson Crusoe. This is far from the first time Defoe's 1719 novel has been filmed. The most recent incarnation was a 1997 Pierce Brosnan feature. In 1964, it was the basis for a French TV series.

This version is going to be a new take on the old story of a man who sets sail from England, his ship is wrecked in a storm and he's thrown overboard winding up alone on a deserted island where he has to fen for himself. In time, he is joined by an escaped slave whom he names Friday. Ben Silverman, NBC's head honcho, described the proposed series in this way: "It's part MacGyver, part contemporary morality tale about race and personal discovery, part comedy and part Castaway meets Survivor." As envisioned, this Robinson Crusoe will need to be clever indeed. It's going to keep the time period 1650's, but when Crusoe finds Friday, he'll presumably be treating him as if it were today with regard to race relations.

Is Remington Steele coming to TV Land?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 23rd 2007 5:16PM

Remington Steele castHmmm...a mystery over at TV Land.com.

In the video section, there is a listing for "Remington Steel clips." Now, besides the fact that they didn't spell Remington Steele correctly, I don't remember the show being on TV Land (or Nick at Nite for that matter). The show is not even listed on their show list. So I clicked on the link to see what clips of the show the site had and I found out that there are also clips for Lost in Space and The Time Tunnel! Is this a promotion for the DVDs you can buy (there are links to buy them) and nothing more, or is it a little preview of shows TV Land has added to the lineup.

But this would be a good show for the network to pick up (I'm talking about Remington Steele, not Lost in Space or The Time Tunnel). I remember a cable network (I think it was A&E) ran the show every afternoon a few years back, and I really got into the show again.

Jon StewartJon seemed to be really honored that he was chosen to host the 2006 Oscars (bwaha! Next... President!). Sure, he may not have been that great in the movies, but I'm sure he'll be brilliant hosting an event about the movies.

Israel's prime minister, Ariel Sharon, suffered a bad stroke and Pat Robertson decided to be a jerk about it, saying that Sharon had a stroke because he divided God's land. Real sympathetic, man. Jon, however, questioned Robertson's reasoning. Dividing God's land caused a stroke? Well, judging by just the pictures of Sharon, the cause seems more likely to be "fat, age, and stress... Unless God was personally force-feeding Sharon knishes".

Pierce Brosnan and a Remington Steele movie?

by Keith McDuffee, posted Dec 19th 2005 10:24AM
remington steeleHere's a bit of James Bond trivia for you. Pierce Brosnan was originally the prime candidate to take over as Bond after Remington Steele was taken off the air due to bad ratings. Once that word got out and got people interested in Remington Steele via reruns, NBC brought the series back for one more season, causing Brosnan to bow out of the Bond race, putting Timothy Dalton into the role. Now that Brosnan is through being Bond himself, he's interested in seeing the 80s television show he started out in come to the big screen. Negotiations are underway.
