Pierce Brosnan

Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan is calling on the producers of "The Thomas Crown Affair" sequel to cast Charlize Theron as his leading lady, instead of superstar Angelina Jolie. The former "James Bond" star is due to begin shooting the new movie next year, but he's still yet to discover whom he will be starring opposite in the picture. And, despite summer reports linking Jolie to the role, Brosnan admits he would prefer to have "Monster" actress Theron as his co-star. He tells People.com, "Charlize Theron is someone who I've always admired. I think she's someone who has acquitted herself grandly."Nothing against Angelina Jolie. I think she's a magnificent actress. But Charlize has a poise about her and has an inner strength and femininity which I really like to watch."
