He is being a bit harsh on himself, don't you think?

Pierce Brosnan has come out and said he never really managed to "nail" his 007 character.

Pierce, 59, said, "It was one of those things I always struggled with - I never felt that I really nailed it - there was always a hint of Sean Connery and Roger Moore that was so indelible in my own mind."
"When I did Tomorrow Never Dies I knew the movie wasn't up to speed, it wasn't as good as GoldenEye," he added.

But on a positive note he said: "I'm proud to have played 007. It's a small group of men, a prestigious group to be in the company of."

I've mentioned before how Pierce said he has never been able to watch his successor, Daniel Craig, as Bond.

He said: "I haven't seen Daniel in the role. I tried watching it on an airplane. I thought 37,000 feet was a good distance to watch it from and it broke down right at the beginning. The attendant came and changed it and it broke down a second time, so I figured, 'OK. The Gods must be saying something...' So I never went near it! I just thought, 'Let sleeping dogs lie'."
