Pierce Brosnan Diving Into Disneynature's 'Oceans'
Pierce Brosnan will narrate Disneynature's newest big-screen documentary 'OCEANS,' arriving on Earth Day, April 22, and by seeing the movie, you can help to save coral reefs!
For every viewer that sees 'OCEANS' in theaters during opening week (April 22-2, Disneynature will make a contribution to The Nature Conservancy to save coral reefs in their honor with their "See 'OCEANS,' Save Oceans" initiative.
Giving moviegoers an unprecedented look beneath the sea, 'OCEANS' boldly chronicles the mysteries that lie beneath the waves, which cover nearly three quarters of our planet's surface. The film features spectacular, never-before-seen imagery captured by the latest underwater technologies.
An outspoken environmentalist who is active in promoting ocean conservation efforts, Brosnan is a natural choice to narrate the film. He has lent his support to the International Fund for Animal Welfare's "Save the Whales Again!" campaign, as well as working with environmental organizations including Sea Shepherd, California Coastal Protection Network, Ocean Futures Society, Oceana and Waterkeeper Alliance.

He’s been Bond, James Bond — and Remington Steele, and the subject of countless fervid female fantasies.
And at 56, slim and elegant in a black suit, he could undoubtedly still kindle many more. His leading-man days are hardly behind him.
But currently, Pierce Brosnan is, as he likes to put it, a “working actor,” happily taking on a variety of character parts — a brave centaur in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” a duplicitous politician in Roman Polanski’s “The Ghost Writer,” a stubborn Brooklyn father in “Remember Me” — and, soon, a grieving parent in “The Greatest,” a “little jewel” of a movie he produced himself.
One recent afternoon in New York, an understandably exhausted Brosnan spoke easily about his busy schedule, his Irish childhood and fame. Even laughed about his singing in last year’s “Mamma Mia!” (“I was trying to woo back my lover with all my heartfelt yearnings. And people said, ‘Please put a bullet in that man and put him out of his misery!’ ”)
And when his cellphone rang, this multimillionaire “working actor” still briefly, politely, interrupted himself to check the caller ID.
“Sorry!” he said. “Could be a job!”
Q: It’s been a really wide range of parts for you, lately. In “Remember Me,” you’re this tough New York businessman.
A: Yes, this powerful, Donald Trump type. I’m very hard-nosed, separated from my wife — we’ve already lost one son to drugs, and I’m estranged from my other son, who’s played by Robert Pattinson. . . . It’s good. He’s very good in it, too. I’m so fond of Rob — this young fellow in the vortex of fame.
Q: And then in “The Ghost Writer,” you’re this politician facing a trial for war crimes. He’s a pretty shady character. And yet he gives a strong and rather stirring justification of himself at the end. He certainly doesn’t think he’s a villain.
A: Villains never do. There’s an ambivalence to him, and an ambivalence to his emotional heart. He’s a man who’s broken and hollowed out.
Q: There’s a bit of Beckett to that movie, isn’t there? This sort of absurdist tragedy, this Irish feeling of “Don’t worry — things will get worse.”
A: It is Beckett-like, isn’t it? I’ve been reading a bit of Beckett lately and you’re right: There is that desolation. But it is Polanski-esque, too. It’s Polanski with all guns blazing — the metaphor, the subterfuge, the malevolence, the claustrophobia, the orchestration of his own legend and history.
Q: In “Remember Me,” you play this very distant father of a troubled son. I know your own father took off when you were very young; your mother had to pretty much keep the family together. Growing up, do you think you took more of a lesson from your father on how not to behave? From your mother, on how you should?
A: Oh, God (long pause). I don’t know. I don’t know. Who knows what makes you what you are? Being Irish, being Catholic, that has something to do with who I am. A sense of aloneness as a young man, a fractured home life. Then the great clarity of a new beginning with my mother and my Scottish stepfather in London — but then, too, being an Irish lad in a big English metropolis, being an outsider, having to play the game to get along. All those things went to make me who I am. And then the gratitude — gratitude that I found a vocation in acting, that I was actually good at something when I was always being told I wasn’t good at anything.
Q: You’ve mentioned being impressed by how Rob Pattinson’s handling his fame. But you really had two waves of it, first with “Remington Steele” and then with the Bond films. Were the experiences very different, coming a decade or so apart?
A: “Remington,” that was just the golden opportunity to create a career and an American life. And it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t taken the leap and mortgaged my house for 2,000 pounds and caught a cheap flight out on Freddie Laker. That was the start. And Bond, Bond always came in and out of my life with drama.
Q: Since you left 007, though, you’ve been doing a wider range of parts than ever. In retrospect, was it good you got out of Bond? Was there a danger that his tuxedo was turning into a straitjacket?
A: Well, I was very aware of being within the confines of a very iconic character. I’d seen the men who’d gone before me, and I’d seen the careers that they had afterward and the lives that they had lived as actors. Now, Sean (Connery) was the man for me — he was the Bond of my generation and the only one that I wanted to try to emulate, but with the firm knowledge that I couldn’t do what he did, that I’d have to do what I do. But within my time of service to her majesty in that role, I always knew I wanted to have a career thereafter. And so, since then, that’s what I’ve been busy with. A working actor, just chipping away, chipping away.
Q: Role by role.
A: You know, it’s really as simple as that. Role by role. The scripts don’t come pouring in; I have to fight for every part. Sometimes, I wonder where my place in this town called Hollywood is — and that can give you a really dull headache. So you just get on with the job. You say to your agent, “I want to work. I need to work. I like to work. Find me good work.” And as you get older, you adjust accordingly, the confidence level increases — you know what has to be done, and if you’re not feeling the emotion at that exact moment on the set, well, you pretend. You just bloody act it. Because you’re a working actor, and hopefully at the end of the day, there’s a handful of films in a career that you can look at and say, that one, that was a great role. And it’s all mine

On February 12th, 2010, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, based on the popular book series by Rick Riordan will be released. This film, directed by my friend Chris Columbus, with whom I worked on Mrs. Doubtfire, centers on a teenage boy who discovers he's the descendant of a Greek god. Percy Jackson then sets out on the adventure of a lifetime to settle an on-going battle between the gods. Cast members include Uma Thurman, Sean Bean, Rosario Dawson, Catherine Keener, Logan Lerman, Kevin McKidd, Melina Kanakerides, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario and yours truly.
On March 12th, 2010, Remember Me with the young and talented Robert Pattinson (Twilight, New Moon) is scheduled for release. Directed by Allen Coulter and written by Will Fetters and Jenny Lumet, Remember Me is a tale of two lovers whose relationship is threatened as they try to cope with their respective family tragedies. I will be playing Robert’s father, while Lena Olin has been cast as his mother. Other cast members include Chris Cooper and Emilie de Ravin.
The Ghost directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski will make its debut at the Berlin Film Festival on February 13th, 2010. This is the first contemporary thriller he has directed and produced in more than twenty years. Based on the book of the same name by best-selling author Robert Harris, The Ghost details the story of a former British Prime Minister and his anonymous ghostwriter who is drawn into a political and sexual conspiracy. The talented cast includes Ewan McGregor, Tom Wilkinson, Kim Cattrall, Timothy Hutton, Jim Belushi, Robert Pugh, and Olivia Williams.
In March 2010, the Irish DreamTime produced film The Greatest, starring Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, Aaron Johnson, Johnny Simmons, Zoe Kravitz, and myself, which was well received at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and the 2009 Hampton’s Film Festival will be released. First time writer/director Shana Feste's richly evocative script results in a compelling drama that is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. The Hollywood Reporter asserts The Greatest "pulls off a stunning fete" and "...performances are daring and brilliantly shaded."
See you at the movies.

I am currently in Berlin working with Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski, who is directing and producing The Ghost, his first contemporary thriller in more than twenty years. Based on the book of the same name by best-selling author Robert Harris, The Ghost details the story of a former British Prime Minister and his anonymous ghostwriter who is drawn into a political and sexual conspiracy. The talented cast includes Ewan McGregor, Tom Wilkinson, Kim Cattrall, Timothy Hutton, Jim Belushi, Robert Pugh, and Olivia Williams.
This April I will begin principal photography on Percy Jackson, based on the popular children's book series by Rick Riordan. The film will be directed by my friend Chris Columbus, with whom I worked with on Mrs. Doubtfire. Other cast members include Uma Thurman, Sean Bean, Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakerides. The story centers on a teenage boy who embarks on a quest to save his mother, by entering the world of Greek mythology.
Last summer my company Irish DreamTime produced The Greatest, starring Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, Aaron Johnson, Johnny Simmons and myself, which was well received at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. First time writer/director Shana Feste's richly evocative script results in a compelling drama that is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. The Hollywood Reporter asserts The Greatest "pulls off a stunning fete" and "...performances are daring and brilliantly shaded." The Greatest was purchased by Senator Entertainment and will be released this fall.
See you at the movies.

Brosnan building high-tech home
source ; http://www.dailymail.co.uk/
As James Bond, he handled his fair share of gadgets.
Now Pierce Brosnan is carrying his love of modern technology into his personal life.
The 55-year-old actor is building a £6.5 million mansion in Malibu, California, which will be packed with enough electronic wizardry to make Q’s eyes light up.
A source said: ‘Pierce has always loved technology and playing Bond only cemented that love. He says this will be his dream house and it will have every possible boy’s toy imaginable, plus a few for his wife.
‘It will have a high-definition home theatre which Pierce says will rival anything out there for clarity and sound.
‘And the security system is going to revolve around pressure sensors in the flooring and infrared lights.’
The two-storey building – on a stretch known as Billionaire’s Row, where neighbours include Cher and Mel Gibson – will have a basement gym, music room and games room.
The master bedroom will have blinds that rise at the touch of a button to reveal ocean views, with adjoining separate bathrooms and walk-in closets for Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye Smith, 46.
The actor’s wardrobe will contain a separate compartment for his cufflinks and an electronic revolving tie holder.
There is also an Olympic-sized pool, an office, an art studio and a library that comes complete with a walk-in cigar humidor.
The entire compound will have wireless and Bluetooth connectivity and flatscreen televisions built into the wall of most rooms.
A touch sensor garage will store his Range Rover and £75,000 Maserati Gran Tourismo sports car.
The source added: ‘Pierce will be able to open the main gates and the garage doors while he is still driving down the freeway. Everything will be linked to a central computer that he can control even when he is outside the house.’
The house should also be green – Brosnan
