Case in point: his son, Dylan Brosnan. While the two have some glaring differences — Dylan towers over his dad, for instance — they have an awful lot in common. Take a look.
Pierce was still a teenager when he began training at the Drama Centre London, and was already enjoying a successful career in theater before bursting into the mainstream with a starring role on Remington Steele in the early '80s.
Dylan was only 17 years old when he signed on to model for Saint Laurent last year, and he recently landed a huge campaign with Burberry.
Pierce is arguably the most handsome James Bond ever to grace the big screen, and it's obvious that Dylan is a chip off the old block when it comes to his smoldering appearance.
This may seem a bit redundant, but not all good-looking men can pull off a sharp black suit and bow tie like the Brosnan men.
Pierce has obviously been hot on the Hollywood scene for decades, so naturally he has famous friends like Gary Oldman and Val Kilmer. Now, Dylan is not only walking the runway with fellow celeb offspring, but it's also been reported that he's developed personal relationships with Oldman and Kilmer's sons, Charlie and Jack.
Besides their professional focuses of acting and modeling, both Pierce and Dylan have artistic interests outside of their careers.
Before falling in love with acting, Pierce wanted to be a painter and began training in commercial illustration at Saint Martin's School of Art. Even after his big-screen career took off he continued to paint, and still does to this day.
In addition to modeling, Dylan is a talented musician and performs often in Malibu with his band.
Their careers were obviously inevitable.
They travel, love art, have cool friends and are ridiculously good-looking. What's not to love?
