There’s been a fair amount of talk over the years about whether there will ever be a black James Bond, but what about a gay one? Skyfall gave us a bit of mild man-on-man flirtation, but there was never any proper suggestion 007 would be LGBT on screen.
However there’s one man with a bit of Bond knowledge who wouldn’t mind a gay secret agent on screen, although he also can’t see it ever happening due to the way Hollywood works.
When asked about it by Details, former Bond, Pierce Brosnan, initially said, “Sure. Why not?.”
However, he added that, “Actually, I don’t know how it would work. I don’t think Barbara [Broccoli, the James Bond producer] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing.”
Who knows though, maybe one day we’ll get a gay, black James Bond. Brosnan may not be able to see it happening, but we shouldn’t give up hope.
