Ewan McGregor Enjoyed The Human Side Of Our Kind Of Traitor


Ewan McGregor John Le Carre

He has recently said that he thinks James Bond is a boring character. And he's also admitted that he has never read a John Le Carre thriller. Until now, that is. Because he's starring in the adaptation of le Carre's Our Kind of Traitor.

He was drawn to the project because it's far more interesting than most scripts he reads. "These are real characters, really human characters," he says.

Good
Somebody told Pierce Brosnan to change his image.

In The Tailor of Panama -- based on John Le Carré's novel and directed by John Boorman (Beyond Rangoon, Zardoz) -- Brosnan trades in the sophistication of James Bond for the identity of crude, disgraced spy Andy Osnard, an MI-6 operative that has to be shipped off to Panama on account of his loathsome behavior. Once he arrives in Panama City, the bad behavior doesn't stop: Osnard immediately sets upon the task of uncovering "what's going on" with the Panama Canal.
