Pierce Brosnan To Become American

LONDON (AP) — Agent 007 is defecting: Pierce Brosnan, best known for portraying British agent James Bond, said he has started the process of becoming an American citizen.

Brosnan, 47, recently bought a beachfront house in Malibu, Calif., leaving his native Ireland and England, where he spent most of his adult life.

``I would like to be an American. I've enjoyed my time here. It's a very, very fine country,'' he told London's Sunday Express.

Brosnan also said he plans to marry longtime girlfriend Keely Shaye Smith, 35, next year. Smith is seven months pregnant and the couple has a three-year-old son, Dylan.

The couple postponed their wedding after Brosnan's 16-year-old son, Sean, was seriously injured in a car accident.

``You see, I want my boy to be able to dance at our wedding, and he would have found that rather difficult,'' Brosnan said.
