Pierce Brosnan has no plans to reprise his role as James Bond, because he feels too old to play the suave superspy.

The 52-year-old Irish actor has ruled out a return, despite DAME JUDI DENCH, who plays spy chief M, assertion that he would be appearing in the forthcoming remake of Casino Royale.

Brosnan says, "I'm too old at 52. A few years ago I would have said I could imagine playing James Bond in a more ferocious way.

"Like a sort of Quentin Tarantino character - but now, at 52, I am definitely too old."

British actor Daniel Craig is favourite to follow in Brosnan's footsteps to become the sixth Bond.
