Guilty Pleasure – Pierce Brosnan

Pierce BrosnanI’ve got a little break in the writing schedule and have been busy plowing through my TBR read pile, especially my pile of books in the IN DEATH series by J.D. Robb. That got me thinking about today’s Guilty Pleasure, namely, if I had to cast Roarke in a movie, who would I choose.

The first name that came to mind was Pierce Brosnan (in his prime, of course). He’s Irish and has blue eyes. I’ve seen him with long hair and he’s yummy. He’s elegant and lethal in a tuxedo.

I have to confess, I fell in love with him when he was Remington Steele and thought he’d be the perfect James Bond. Unfortunately, the screenplays they stuck him with in that franchise were horrific. Nothing like the great writing going on now with the Daniel Craig version.

So if you’re familiar with the series, who would you pick to play Roarke?

Also, does he have a last name? For the life of me, I can’t ever remember it being said with any regularity.

Finally, who is the candy bar thief. I just read CONSPIRACY IN DEATH and there is a scene AT HOME where the candy bar disappears and Roarke is telling Eve that she has to eat healthier. Could it be Roarke or someone working for him that is the candy bar thief?

On another note, welcome to those who are here for the Summer Giveaway Hop. Just leave a comment on any blog this week for a chance to win a LOST T-shirt and a copy of my paranormal romance STRONGER THAN SIN.

  2. I love Pierce Brosnan too love his movies! Great pick what a great giveaway thank you very much!

  3. I don’t know if there is a male alive that would be suitable casting for Roarke since Roarke is such a perfect speciman. Gerard Bulter would be my closest pick.

  7. Believe it or not I’ve read everything of Nora Roberts EXCEPT her “In Death” series. And although I haven’t read the series so am not familiar with Roarke, as far as I’m concerned you can’t go wrong with Gerard Butler! Thanks for the giveaway and for participating in this blog hop!

  11. I loved Remington Steele and Pierce Brosnan would be a perfect choice.
    Nah! Roarke, a thief? Why would you think that?
    I can’t even come up with who the candy thief is but I hope she lets us know at some point.

  12. I admit I haven’t read that series, but I love Pierce! 🙂

    I’d love to enter your great givaway! Thanks so much!

  13. I always wondered who the candy thief was…forgot about the home one… always think about her stash at work that gets taken… 😀
    Enjoyable Guilty Pleasure Monday!

  14. I absolutely love Pierce Brosnan! Loved him in Remington Steele and the Bond movies. Great pick for today’s Guilty Pleasure.

  15. Pierce as Remington Steele is definitely a guilty pleaseure. I remember when A&E used to run reruns of the show on like Friday night’s and I would actually stay home to watch a couple hours of it as opposed to going out

  16. Pierce would have been an excellent choice. Who else would I pick? I’m not sure. While Hugh Jackman does not have the blue eyes, I think he could pull it off. And, I confess, I too loved PB as Remington Steele.

    You know, I had forgot about the stolen candy bar at home, until you mentioned that I always thought the thief was Baxter. Maybe there are 2 thieves – Baxter and Summerset.

  17. I have to admit that I think your choice of Pierce Bronson is right on!! I also remember him from Remington Steele and loved him on there. (He stole the show!!) Even though Sean Connery was a favorite of mine, I did think that Mr Bronson would be a great 007 and also was disappointed in the vehicles that they gave him.
