Pierce Brosnan is out as 007, after long speculation.

A single, surprising phone call and it was over. That's how Pierce Brosnan says he learned that his services as James Bond would no longer be required.

"One phone call, that's all it took!" the 52-year-old actor tells Entertainment Weekly magazine in its Aug. 19 issue.

One interesting bit...

Brosnan says he's grateful to have had the role, but adds: "It never felt real to me. I never felt I had complete ownership over Bond. Because you'd have these stupid one-liners _ which I loathed _ and I always felt phony doing them."

I remember the last Bond movie I saw, the one with Halle Berry, had a massive overload of puns. Glad Brosnan agrees.
