The stars of Prison Break  are not the only heartthrobs at MIPCOM 2006: former James Bond Pierce Brosnan is also be in Cannes to promote the sequel to 1999's gentleman thief flick The Thomas Crown Affair.


Asked whether he would rather play a gentleman thief or a gentleman spy, Brosnan said he had no real preference. “I decided to do the Crown film so I could play a different note in a similar genre. The sequel’s scripts will be ready next month, and we’ll start shooting in the new year.”

As far as Brosnan is concerned, he is happy to put James Bond behind him. Thomas Crown is a film close to his heart as it was one of the first film produced by his own compay, Irish Dream Time. “We took the original off the shelf a while ago – we took the old film’s story as a starting point for ours – and MGM went with it.”

Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan today added his voice to protests over a natural gas facility proposed for a site 22km off California


Brosnan and other celebrity residents gathered at Surfrider Beach in Malibu to protest against the planned gas facility, which would be built 22km off the coast.

"We have to use our voices and band together and stop this," said Oscar winner Halle Berry.

The gathering - also attended by Cindy Crawford, Jane Seymour, Dick Van Dyke and Tea Leoni - was intended to raise awareness about how the energy industry has invested billions to liquefy and ship natural gas across oceans.

There are five facilities proposed for California, with three along the southern Californian coastline. One of the world's largest energy companies, Australian-based BHP Billiton, is seeking to build the terminal off the coast of Malibu and Oxnard. A decision is expected next year.

BHP officials say the terminals would provide a reliable source of low-polluting energy. Opponents, however, say the terminals fail to meet clean-air requirements and would be terrorist targets.

"We invented smog," said actor Ted Danson. "For us to be increasing that is insane."

Brosnan, who hosted the protest, said his opposition to the terminals extends beyond the beach in his backyard. He plans to oppose other proposed terminals, including one in Long Beach and one in Port Hueneme.

"I would certainly put our best efforts into that as well," said Brosnan. "I think this is for the whole California coastline."

Mark Massara, a lawyer and director of the Sierra Club's California Coastal Program, said the recent celebrity interest in the terminals has helped their cause tremendously.

"This is the greatest thing that has happened to our effort," he said. "We have struggled over the last three years."

Following a pancake breakfast, dozens of surfers, including Roxanne star Daryl Hannah on her pink board, paddled out to a sign bobbing in the water. The message to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has the power to veto the proposal, had a picture of the proposed terminal with a red line through it and two words: "Terminate it!"
