Pierce Brosnan has said that he doesn't care who gets the new role of James Bond, but wishes whoever it is well.
Speaking to GQ in an interview featuring his two sons, Paris and Dylan, the 69-year-old Irish actor shared his thoughts on the vacant 007 seat.
“Who should do it? I don’t care,” he said.
“It’ll be interesting to see who they get, who the man shall be,” Brosnan continued. “Whoever he be, I wish him well.”
Brosnan starred as Bond in 'GoldenEye', 'Tomorrow Never Dies', 'The World is Not Enough' and 'Die Another Day' between 1995 and 2002. He was then replaced by Daniel Craig to bring the franchise into a new era.
“I saw the last one,” he says about Craig's films. “And I saw 'Skyfall'. I love 'Skyfall'. I’m not too sure about the last one. Daniel always gives of his heart. Very courageous, very strong. But…” he said before trailing off.
Earlier this week, series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have said the search for the new Bond is ongoing.
The producers have set out criteria for the next actor to fill the shoes of Bond, and said the role requires a significant time commitment.
"The thing is, it’s going to be a couple of years off,” Broccoli told Variety.
"When we cast Bond, it’s a 10 to 12-year commitment. So they're probably thinking, ‘Do I really want that thing? Not everybody wants to do that."
Brosnan is set to star in the upcoming superhero movie 'Black Adam' alongside Dwayne Johnson.
