Brosnan says Bond firing was liberating

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Actor Pierce Brosnan told Entertainment Weekly he actually felt liberated when he was fired from playing film's James Bond.

"After that kind of titanic jolt to the system, there was a great sense of calm," Brosnan said. "I'm not beholden to them or anyone. I'm not shackled by some contracted image. So there was a sense of liberation."


Bond producers have not announced who will next play Agent 007 in the upcoming "Casino Royale."

Some of the many names being kicked around in past months include Clive Owen, Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig and Goran Visnjic.
