Pierce Brosnan accidentally drops a major Mamma Mia 2 spoiler in 'This Morning' interview
Pierce Brosnan and Amanda Seyfried appear in an interview on This Morning and the Bond actor got a bit carried away while promoting the film.
Pierce Brosnan will be returning to Mamma Mia 2 and will reprise his role of Sam in the movie later this month. While he and his fellow co-star Amanda Seyfried are out there promoting the movie it looks like Pierce went a bit off track and spoke a little too much. Appearing on Tuesday's This Morning, the actor opened up about returning on the set for the sequel and what the viewers could expect from the movie. " 'Its how Meryl [Streep] met Sam, Harry and it's delightful – there's much more meat on the bone on this one," he said. "I think it's as good as, if not better than, the last one. We all felt that, and the first one was so brilliant and such an unexpected surprise for everyone. Just went through the roof."
While Pierce may not have realized what he just said, host Phillip Schofield was quick to pick it up. Appearing shocked he said, "I don't think you realize Pierce that you've just done a little bit of a spoiler.' To which Pierce weighed in: 'Oh, have I?" The host added, "We were keeping a secret, maybe I'll just let it go, and if you spotted what the spoiler was then well done."
Weighing in on this Phil's co-host Holly Willoughby said: 'Lots of people will be winding back now." Unsure of what he said Pierce added, "They told us we can’t talk about this, we can’t talk about that. It's a movie'." Even though Philip hinted that there was a major spoiler in what Pierce said, many people failed to get the hint. What was that mama Mia spoiler? Am I missing something? #thismorning," one user wrote, while another added, "What’s the spoiler? I completely missed it - even after rewinding! @thismorning @hollywills @Schofe #MammaMia2 #ThisMorning"
As of now, one the guesses is that Pierce revealed Meryl Street will be appearing on the movie. In all the trailers of the movie the actress has not been revealed which convinced people that she is not part of the sequel. However, looking at the comment made by Pierce, we might get a chance to see the actress back in her role of Donna. The interview then quickly moved forward to Cher’s cameo in the movie and Amanda, who is reprising her role of Sophia, gushed about Cher's performance.
"She was the person we were missing in the first one we didn't know who we were missing," she said. Pierce chimed in: "She was amazing, there was such a crackle of anticipation before she came in, and there she was, Cher." Meanwhile, while appearing on The Graham Norton Show Cher shared details about her involvement in the film; especially since she didn't even audition for the part.
Cher was asked if she was talked into being part of the movie and she said, "Yes. But, my agent called me and said, 'You're in the new Mamma Mia film', and then hung up. I didn't have much choice!"Another severely striking fact about her casting is how she plays the mother of 69-year-old Meryl Streep in the Mama Mia sequel. When Graham Norton pointed that out, she laughed, saying: "I am older than her – by four years. When they asked I said, 'That's absolutely fine, that's cool.'"
