Former 007 star Pierce Brosnan is convinced James Bond producers are already regretting their decision to replace him with younger star Daniel Craig.

The Irish actor, 52, was heartbroken at being dropped from the role of the suave superspy, and he is certain movie bosses have made a huge mistake.

He says, "Whether they made the right choice, who knows? They're probably scared s**tless, thinking, 'What have we done?'"

British actor Craig, who is the first blond Bond, was officially named as Brosnan's replacement at a London press conference yesterday (14OCT05).

I AM NOT BRITISH!!!

EXCUSE ME? BRITISH DOES NOT INCLUDE IRELAND. WE ARE LONG SEPERATED FROM YOUR COLONIAL RULE. I FEEL DIGUSTED THAT WE ARE EVEN CONSIDERED BRITISH. BE SURE TO REALISE THAT IRELAND IS AN INDEPENDANT STATE WHICH HAS ABSLOUTELY NO ASSOCIATION WITH THE TITLE "BRITISH". TO SAY IRELAND IS BRITISH IS THE THE SAME AS SAYING THE USA IS BRITISH. PLEASE DONT INSULT US!!!!!

Craig is a British actor? Does that mean he is not an English actor or a Scottish actor or an Irish actor or a Welsh actor or what please clarify. Calling some one British is actually considered rude. Ignoring the true origins of these British people is the equivalent to calling a Chinese person or a Japanese person or a Thai person an oriental. During past Olympics many athelites were identified as British and only an Englishman was identified as such, where as the Welsh, Irish, and Scots where called British. Not to be identified by their nationality is a great insult to Irish, Welsh, and Scotsman alike. Being called British is letting the world know that the English rule over you. And of course as we all know the true heirs to the British throne do not have the crown today. So is Craig an English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh blonde James Bond or what? If he is English is he of German decent or an Anglo-saxon? Replacing Brosnan as James Bond is quite amazing and with a blonde at that. If Craig flops as James Bond the studio must be counting on being able to still use Brosnan because he is not at retiring age or looks what so ever. The more mature Sean Connery made the most captivating Bond films. Fact! The new Bond better debut in a great new Bond film and be extra perfect himself. The studio better be ready to pay Brosnan lots of money to bail them out of debt if Craig's Bond falls short. Brosnan should of course just keep looking great and above all continue being a gentleman, an Irish gentleman.

Daniel Craig looks completely horrible, who did you choose??? As I see it the new Bond will be made also here in Czech, where I live, and I was looking foward to go to casting, really!!!!!!The times, when it looked like Pierce will be Bond, I was so happy and I really wanted to meet him somewhere here... But then when you said Craig is going to be Bond, I was completely angry! I will boycott the movie!!!What did you do??? You broke my dream to see Bond making in Czech... with Daniel Craig I don´t want to see it at all... I´d like to miss it... as all my friends!

I am Irish and you will insult me if you call me British as I'm not British and neither is Brosnan - he's originally Irish. Craig is English which is part of Britain; none of it is rascist or politically correct or incorrect - maybe you should consult an Atlas?
