Speculation: Pierce Brosnan

Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has said he thinks the next actor to take on the role of 007 will be male and white.

The 62-year-old Irish-born actor - who starred in the spy franchise from 1994 to 2005 before handing over to Daniel Craig - said the character, created by Ian Fleming, is "all man".

New movie Spectre is rumoured to be Craig's final turn as 007, and there has been speculation whether his successor could be a black actor, or even a woman.

But Brosnan said: "Anything is possible for sure, but I think he'll be male and he'll be white."

He added: "There's wonderful black actors out there who could be Bond, but a female James Bond, no, I think it has to be male. James Bond is a guy, he's all male."
