Pierce Brosnan is relieved not to sing on ‘Eurovision’



Pierce Brosnan is relieved not to sing on 'Eurovision'

Pierce Brosnan has a touch-and-go relationship with singing.

In 2008, he starred in Meryl Streep’s love interest in “Mamma Mia!” The popular ABBA film made $ 600 million at the global box office, but the former 007 was still mocked unanimously for the song “S.O.S.” and “I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do.”

The crooner is back in a story with songs in “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga,” a comedy starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams as Icelandic pop duo that made him enter the famous music competition, Eurovision. Only this time, he didn’t hum a lot.

“I think [I was cast] for my singing, “said Brosnan The Post. “But then I knew I didn’t have a song to sing in the film, which was a relief and a disappointment. But I have a joke. When you read the introduction to my character, Erick, in parentheses [it says] “Probably the most handsome man in Iceland.”

The 67-year-old Debonair plays Ferrell’s father, Lars, a stubborn man who enjoys pubs and hopes his son will quit music. One nature of Brosnan and his shared character: As a child, he did not care about Eurovision.

“I didn’t know about that when I was a child in Ireland,” he said. “We don’t have TV. I didn’t really come into the world of television until I left in 1964 when I was an 11-year-old boy. I was a country boy until then. “

His first meeting with the broadcast was in 1974, when he was 21 and living in London, and ABBA famously won the contest with “Waterloo.” That memory is what sells it on his new movie script.

“I read it one morning, and the opening page is,” Havav, 1974. The family watches Eurovision. ABBA. “I think there is a joke somewhere,” he said.

In short, the Californian went to Europe with his wife, Keely, and made his first trip to Iceland, where the couple could “soak in a hot spring and drink delicious Iceland beer.”

The surprising realization for Brosnan was that many Icelanders still believed in fairies.

“I did not know until I read the script, and I could not believe it,” he said. “They seem to have this idea, like the Irish with leprechauns, but the people of Iceland certainly have a deep spirituality with the fairy world.”

Even so, the actor was still fascinated by the locals. He even has a new Icelandic best friend for life.

“We are friends with our driver there, and we are still in contact with him,” he said.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
