Inside the Actors Studio

This is a sequence from the tv show Inside the Actors Studio presented by James Lipton. Pierce Brosnan was invited on November 2002. He talks about the first James Bond offer in 1986 that he had to refuse to film the 5th season of Remington Steele. There is a bit of frustration in his words as he missed the role because of only few episodes. But he finally got the role in 1994!Right click and "save as": Actors Studio (WMV file - 2.5 Mo)

Pierce Brosnan Biography

Pierce Brosnan was born in 1953 in Navan, Irland, where he lived until he was 11 years old. Pierce’s youth was quite hard as his father abandoned the family while Pierce was only 1.

Here are three versions of the Remington Steele's main theme. Due to my bad memory and a lack of raw material I cannot say which seasons the first two themes are related to... The third one is an amazing long version. Right click and "save as" : Theme 1 Theme 2Theme 3

Movie Steele?

According to various websites, particularly this one, Pierce Brosnan is in talks to produce Remington Steele to the big screen. It seems that he would not participate because he considers he is too old to play the role of the famous TV detective.But I tell you: If a Remington Steele movie *without* Pierce Brosnan happens, fans will be mortified!!

DVD release

  The first two seasons on DVDs are available in zone 1. You may have noticed that Stephanie Zimbalist doesn't appear on the first dvd box... What a shame! When the series was created, Pierce Brosnan was totally unknown while she had alreay begun her actress carrier. It is a pity that Brosnan's fame - which came later on - was only used to mercantile purposes! Fortunately, they appear side-by-side on the second season's dvd pack. Season 3's DVD release is expected on April 18th. Doris Roberts will join Brosnan and... [Lire la suite]

A Question of Steele

Welcome to this blog which is entirely dedicated to the TV series Remington Steele. I am a French fan and I discovered the series about 10 years ago. After the ultimate episode, the show totally disappeared from French channels and I progressively started to forget how fond I was of Remington Steele. But some weeks ago,  I realized that it was aired again on the cable and my born-again interest led me to buy the first two seasons DVDs. The series is now 20 years old or so, the way to dress is a bit outdated but the series... [Lire la suite]
