Talk about not profiling words! Pierce Brosnan then followed him up by saying he would be supportive of whoever takes over as James Bond, although as the article notes, his tone suggests he’s not particularly interested in the final decision. In Brosnan’s words:
It will probably take a while until we get to know who this person is, as Barbara Broccoli, who co-run the James Bond franchise with her half-brother Michael Wilson, said the 26th Bond movie won’t start shooting until 2024 at the earliest. Rumor has it, though, that whoever is cast for the role will be on the younger side, thus ruling out fan favorites like Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy. Whatever the case, Pierce Brosnan clearly didn’t invest in the decision, although you can bet someone would ask him to comment on the selection once it was announced.
