Pierce Brosnan: 'I Was Never Good Enough as Bond'

The Telegraph:
Once he was Bond, in his latest role he's a retiree turned diamond robber. As The Love Punch opens, Pierce Brosnan discusses bad times, buffoonery, and acting his age

I saw the previews to this move The Love Punch and at first I thought it's just going to be a dumb movie but I was laughing so hard just at the previews at the theater. I'm going to go see it just for that alone. Sometimes it's good just to go see a movie for fun and to laugh a little.

Don't say that, you were awesome as Bond.

I think he suited the James Bond character very well. He's better then Daniel Craig in my opinion, I think Daniel Craig's version of Bond, serious, lack of gadgets, straight faced etc would of suited a Bourne reboot instead, I mean Casino Royale was good but it felt more like a Bourne film then James Bond. Skyfall is the only Daniel Craig Bond film which actually feels like a Bond film.
