Pierce Brosnan, The Matador

Always known as a debonair Irishman with old-fashioned sex appeal, Pierce Brosnan does a mid-life course-changing spin with The Matador, an edgy black comedy from New York born-and-bred writer-director href="">Richard Shepard. It was Brosnan's surprising decision to play the bisexual, end-of-his-rope hitman from Shepard's original script, which his company, Irish Dream Time, also produced. But then, daunted by the idea of playing this worn-out, outrageously over-the-top killer and maybe even more daunted by worrying how audiences would accept him, Brosnan had a crisis of confidence and was ready to quit. All this and more in this intimate conversation with the man who is perhaps best known as Secret Agent 007 James Bond.
