Sorry! But when I first registered I was not aware that in the U.S. you right the date with the place of the day in Portugal place for the month so my day of Birth is 4 of August the day that PB married with Keely.
And I'm in the forum since 2003 and just this year I saw this .
Ooops well Happy Un- Birthday as they say in Alice In Wonderland.
Any date changes would be done in your user profile. I'm not sure how this new system works though since they made people give their birthdays to verify they were over 13 when registering and I'm not sure if they let you change though maybe they do. I just haven't tried it.
Pierce Brosnan’s Birthday Diary: Fifth Season Edition
Has it been 365 days already? Days of Weinsteins and roses and self fast becom. fixture on indie film scene. (Time to call James Lipton and book the sequel.) But better be quick about it, Dear Diary, bef. life turns into a Very Special Reunion Episode.
Got an SOS from former el hefe, el bossman, Michael Gleason, frm back in mini-series era of television. He was whinging about nearing retiremnt and throwing out odd bits of chaff like “legacy” and “best years of our lives” and then final. getting around to something like the point. Seems the Smithsonian had been calling all week wanting to know when my DVD contrib. to the next seasons of That 80’s Show would be ready and he could hardly blame them -- where would television history be without me? Not bad for foreplay, MG, so I let him go on until he finally cut to the chase – he needed “quality air time” from yrs truly and co-stars or he might get stuck talking abt the scripts for the Unfortunate Fifth Season -- sending him (his words) “into a tailspin of despair" frm which he'd "never fully recover."
Call me irresponsible, but self couldn’t resist winding him up. Love to be there for you, old chap, but no can do. Y’see I'm on location in the Samoan jungle. Be here until the next tramp steamer happens by. Well, self never heard such bawling! Self hates to see a grizzled old producer cry. Was that the nurse offering him something to bite down on? Keep him on suicide watch, will you? I’m heading down the PCH right now.
On the day, I pulled up to the studio in the Aston and saw me old china Jack Scalia by the kerb. (I’d know those biceps anywhere.) Handed him the car keys and told him prk it in the shade, mind the paint job, don’t touch the radio. He greeted me w the tradit. Sicilian hand gesture meaning “how are you?” Nice to know some things haven’t changed.
Decid. to turn him green with envy by bringing up “The Matador” and my run at fabulous Golden Globe-osity. (I’ve had lots of practice working it into conversation.) Clapped JS on the back and said that could be you up there one day, mate. All you have to do is walk across a hotel lobby in yr skivvies. “As in below the waist?! Thanks but no thanks! I got my own gig. Head of Homeland Security. You’ve seen “Red Eye”? I’m keepin’ my hand in for the sequel. Presidential Medals of Freedom don’t hand themselves out by themselves, you know!”
Self guessed not. We both agreed Rachel McAdams was a babe. The rest of the gang from That 80’s Show showed up and before we knew it, it was time to make television history. Five minutes into the taping it was apparent that just mentioning the word “re-write” would make Robin Bernheim and Michael Gleason hyperventilate. So we stuck to two subjects: the weather, and everyone’s health.
Self: There was an air of ill-omen about the whole affair. A veritable black cloud. I distinctly remember tearing a fingernail opening a bottle of champers.
JS: Big whoop, tough guy! Try swinging from a vine sometime! During the rainy season!
Self: Harder than it looked, I suppose. Didn’t your hair get infested with rare Peruvian tree lice?
Breaking Birthday News!: Advance copy of the DVD is here!
Well, not quite. Smithsonian-style commentary crowded out by Scary Obsessed Fan Long Play Feature. Fans so disgruntled at Unfortunate Fifth Season that list of grievances took up two sides of disc. Letter enclsed says the studio hates, hates, hates making extra ones and, due to fan feeling, rel. commentaries on that season would be like "pouring gas on brush fire.” Not something to sell in stores without “hold harmless clause.” Bugger. That’s the last time self listens to Michael Gleason!

On a tangent, yet not entirely unrelated to the Brosnan Day celebrations:
A German TV station called "Das Vierte" (mainly a movie channel) aired Don't talk to strangers and Murder 101 back to back on May 16. And I also found two cinemas showing The Matador in my area (i.e. within a 50-mile radius ) in that day's paper.
