Pierce Brosnan Loses to Jimmy Fallon in 'GoldenEye 007' (VIDEO)

Posted on

Just because you star in a video game, doesn’t mean you’ll be any good at it.

That’s the hard lesson Pierce Brosnan learned during his appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday – the former Bond, James Bond, was handily defeated by Jimmy Fallon at the classic Nintendo 64 game based on the first film Brosnan appeared in as the iconic British agent.

A generation of kids grew up playing “GoldenEye 007” on the N64 platform – it’s considered one of the most important titles in the first-person shooter genre and is a spiritual successor to millions-selling games like Microsoft’s “Halo” franchise.

But Brosnan apparently had little time to familiarize himself with the game during his tenure as 007 – he’s handily defeated by Fallon, who admits to a long-held desire to play the game with the man who inspired it. (At least they hug and make up at the end.)

Better luck next time, Pierce – maybe keep your fingers crossed for a Remington Steele game?

Meanwhile, Brosnan is back to his old spy tricks in The November Man, in which he plays an ex-CIA operative. The film hits theaters Aug. 27.

Watch the full clip from his appearance below.
