A scene of intimacy can be frightening, whether it’s just a small kiss or something much more intense. For Adam Devinewhile filming the new Netflix comedy The outlaws came with a fun challenge in this arena as he had to get up close and personal with a movie legend. Not once, but twice a man can kiss Pierce Brosnan in this action rom-com that makes you wonder, how do you prepare for this?
Well, apparently it doesn’t involve much thought, but instead some over-the-counter cosmetic magic. At least that’s what I was told when I spoke with Devine and his co-star Nina Dobrev on behalf of this weekend’s premiere of The outlaws. Romantic action/comedy is part of what it is new on Netflix in july the three of us dug into some of the exciting exploits that came with the territory.
So when I asked Adam Devine how he prepared to kiss a man who is undoubtedly one of the most charming movie stars we have today, here’s what he shared with CinemaBlend:
Despite the intense charm of The Thomas Crown Affair actor, there is no romance behind this pair of moments between Devine and Brosnan. In fact, it all starts with the former James Bond introducing himself to his future son-in-law with a surprise kiss rather than a firm and traditional handshake.
It’s a moment where he gains that gregarious charm that Pierce Brosnan is known for, while also casting an off-guard Owen on Adam Devine. So one can see why this is so Workaholics the veteran wouldn’t want to overthink the moment, as the closer he can get to Owen’s shock and surprise, the better. Also, Divine probably realized, like any normal person with Netflix subscription, that she’s not “ready” to kiss Pierce Brosnan. It’s just a situation where you have to dive in and report back.
Like the cast of The outlaws features the likes of Lil Rel Howery, Ellen Barkin, and Michael Rooker, you can already think of some of the crazy things this ensemble has done for other projects. The leading man in this comedy is no exception to the list of achievements, as Devine went nude in the front of his previous film on Netflix Game over, man!. And really, how crazy was two kisses with the fifth James Bond?
While he may not have consciously prepared himself for the craziness of Happy Madison’s latest venture into the streaming realm, the actor had the right stuff to turn that kiss into a huge callback joke. I won’t spoil the fun of Adam Devine fixing Pierce Brosnan’s kiss. However, I would encourage you to check it out The outlaws for yourself as it is currently streaming on Netflix.
