    Looks like even James Bond is not invincible. [​IMG] See the CNN story on Pierce Brosnan.

    Well, Pierce is pushing 50 nowadays. I can see why he'd opt out of a lot more 007 films because sometimes the mind is willing, but the body is not.

    Of course, the Bond in the original books was far from invincible. He had bones broken and other injuries which kept him hospitalized for lengthy periods. It's really the movie Bond who comes across as Superman.

    The book Bond was also more of a womanizer (not just a sexoholic) and had a scar on his face. Compared to every Bond actor, the book Bond is entirely different.
