Silver Bear @ Berlin filmfestival

Silver Bear @ Berlin filmfestival

The Silver Bear award for best director went to Roman Polanski for “The Ghostwriter,” his political thriller starring Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan. Based on a novel by Robert Harris, it tells the story of Adam Lang, a former British prime minister who is compiling his memoirs on rain-swept, desolate Martha’s Vineyard in winter.

Polanski, confined to his Swiss chalet and facing possible extradition to the U.S. more than 30 years after he pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl, was unable to come to the festival. He was arrested as he arrived in Switzerland in September to accept an award at the Zurich Film Festival.

His producer Alain Sarde accepted the Berlin prize on his behalf and said he had spoken to Polanski on the phone.

“I was lamenting that he couldn’t come,” Sarde told the audience at the award ceremony in Berlin. “He said: ‘Even if I could, I wouldn’t, because the last time I went to a festival I ended up in jail.”

    Brosnan about Obama & Jolie


    Pierce Brosnan Favors Charlize as Costar, Obama as President

    source www.people.com

    Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan thinks that President-elect Barack Obama would make a good 007.

    "He's cool enough. He's definitely got the walk and the talk, yes," the actor told PEOPLE at the second annual Jane Goodall Institute Global Leadership Awards Celebration in Washington, D.C., Friday night. "But I think he's going to make a greater president. And Mr. Daniel Craig is a great Bond of his time."

    As far as casting goes, the actor also has filming the sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair on his mind. So who's on his wish list for a female lead?

    Charlize Theron is someone who I've always admired. I think she's someone who has acquitted herself grandly," Brosnan told PEOPLE. "Nothing against Angelina Jolie. I think she's a magnificent actress. But Charlize has a poise about her and has an inner strength and femininity which I really like to watch."

    Jolie was reportedly in talks to play the lead this past summer.

    Brosnan, 55, and his wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, 45, received the award for Responsible Activism in Media and Entertainment for their active support of Roots & Shoots, the global environmental youth program that Goodall started.

    "Keely and I are honored to be in Washington, D.C., at such an exciting time in this nation's history and to accept this award from our dear friend Dr. Jane Goodall," Brosnan told the crowd at the $500-a-plate fundraiser.

    "I have a wonderful wife in Keely, who is very versed in the world of green," he told reporters. "This is a partnership now of 16 years and she has educated me on the environment and how to bring up children, whether it's the food they eat or the food that we grow at home in Hawaii – clean water, good vegetables, recycling." The couple has two sons, Dylan, 11, and Paris, 7, in addition to three grown children from Brosnan's first marriage.
