Brosnan Becomes A Mentor

Big-heart JAMES BOND actor PIERCE BROSNAN is becoming a surrogate dad to a disadvantaged child in Los Angeles.

The British star is one of a host of celebrities, including WYCLEF JEAN and COOLIO, to offer himself to the scheme. He will take on a child who is either homeless or in foster care, and be their mentor for a year.

Despite his busy filming schedule, the 50-year-old has pledged to spend at least two days every month with the lucky child.

A spokesman for the program says, "It's a very generous and magnanimous gesture."

Pierce has two children with his second wife KELLY SHAYE-SMITH, and a son with his late first wife CASSANDRA. He also adopted Cassandra's two children from her first marriage after their father died.
