Pierce Brosnan plays GoldenEye 007

Dam it.

Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan had played GoldenEye 007 - one of the greatest video games of all time - once before. Now, he's played it twice.

Brosnan, who starred as James Bond in the film upon which the groundbreaking Rare-made first-person shooter was based, went split-screen against US talk-show host Jimmy Fallon in a one versus one multiplayer match. Brosnan, as you'd expect, plays Bond.

We won't spoil what happens, save to say, poor Pierce struggles.

This seems like an appropriate time to mention that GoldenEye 007 is 17 years old. Happy Wednesday!
