Pierce Brosnan Slams Ewan McGregor Bond Snub

Irish heartthrob Pierce Brosnan has branded the producers of the iconic James
Bond movies “stupid” for dismissing Ewan McGregor as too short for the coveted

The 52-year-old, who made his debut as the superspy in 1995’s Goldeneye, was
controversially axed from the role earlier this year and speculation over
the identity of his successor has been rife ever since.

But Brosnan was amazed to learn the charismatic Star Wars hunk is not being
considered for upcoming movie Casino Royale simply because, at 5
feet, 10 inches tall, he stands 1.5 inches shy of the
minimum Bond measurement.

Brosnan, who is a towering 6 feet, 1 inch, fumes, “It’s
ridiculous. I thought, ‘That’s a stupid reason.’

“Ewan’s a fine actor and he’s tall anyway. I couldn’t believe it.”

A galaxy of other male stars have been linked with the Bond role including
Clive Owen, Daniel Craig and Julian McMahon.
