After running the gamut from establishing his action star bona fides as James Bond in four films to playing a singing architect in the romantic comedy musical 'Mamma Mia!,' Irish-born, London-bred actor Pierce Brosnan stars in Roman Polanski's 'The Ghost Writer,' a Hitchcockian political thriller about an exiled Prime Minister, his potentially criminal actions and the titular ghostwriter assigned to write his memoirs.

As Prime Minister Adam Lang, Brosnan imbues the Tony Blair-esque figure with a combination of dignity, self-righteousness and pathos, simultaneously attracting and repelling the viewer in equal measure. With 'Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief' already in theaters and 'Remember Me' landing in them next month, 2010 has already proven a remarkably busy year for the actor.
