Former James Bond and Irish-born leading man Pierce Brosnan
has been seen in town, most notably at Steve-O-Reno
's on Brunswick Street. He's here working on a mini-series called Bag of Bones
, adapted from a Stephen King story. Though his licence to kill has been reassigned, Brosnan keeps making good choices with his career, recently appearing as a Tony Blair-esque politician in last year's Roman Polanski picture The Ghost Writer
. If you run into him, mentioning his work in that picture might be a good ice-breaker.
