Pierce Brosnan Returns To TV After Nearly 25 Years

 Former 007 Pierce Brosnan is returning to the small screen? That’s the word from Deadline.com, which reports that Brosnan will star in an as-yet-untitled “investigative thriller” from ER writer/producer Jack Orman.

The still dashing Irishman will play “a ‘fixer,’ [a] private investigator specializing in international crisis innervation who is called in to help solve homicides, abductions, financial schemes and other crimes anywhere in the world.”

Hmmm, didn’t we like this when it was called Remington Steele, Brosnan’s last TV series that aired from 1982 to 1987? What’s Stephanie Zimbalist doing these days anyway?

Brosnan has appeared in several films since his last appearance as Bond in 2002′s Die Another Day. He even was nominated for a Golden Globe for his well-received role in the 2005 comedy The Matador. (Well, he also “won” a Razzie for his “performance” in the Mamma Mia! adaptation. But, hey, it made tons of dough.)

Are you excited to see Pierce Brosnan back on TV?
