“Former James Bond pin-up Pierce Brosnan wants to shed his excess weight before he starts work on his new film role.
The Navan man (55) insists that he looks fat in the new musical Mamma Mia! and is keen to shape up for Thomas Crown Affair 2.
Pierce will be working with director Paul Verhoeven for the new film, and he wants to be in shape to act the part of a ladies man for the director.
“Paul does sexy really well. I will have to go to the gym to lose my Mamma Mia! middle before we start the film,” Pierce said.
He will reprise his role as the debonair gentleman thief in the sequel to hit 1999 movie The Thomas Crown Affair when he wooed Rene Russo’s character with his looks and charm. This time, new mum Angelina Jolie is said to be in line to play the character’s young interest in the heist movie.
Pierce will have the challenging task of being both lead actor and producer in the next ‘Affair’ so he’ll need to be in good shape.
The former Remington Steele star, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role as an over-the-hill hitman in Matador, wowed audiences this summer with his turn in the all-singing, all-dancing Mamma Mia!
Now he has to turn on the 007-style polish to convince cinema lovers that he is Thomas Crown, a playboy who amuses himself by stealing artwork.”
