Pierce Brosnan tells the Associated Press he's glad he is no longer playing James Bond.

"With the chapter of Bond past now, there is a wonderful sense of liberation and freedom from having to carry that part," he says. "You have more ownership of your life and the direction your life is going to go and choices of parts. And 'The Matador' is kind of a really wonderful transitional time. Serendipitous, really."

His latest role is a bit of irony: the 52-year-old Brosnan plays a burnt-out hit man in The Matador.

Going into "The Matador," Brosnan wasn't thinking: "I'm going to destroy an image that's gone before. But as I got more and more into it I realized that's exactly what's going on."
