Previously, we’ve seen the likes of Will Smith, Ryan Reynolds, and other Hollywood stars filming movies or simply hanging out in Dubai. These days, we suggest you keep your eyes open as you might just run into Mr. James Bond himself… the dashing Pierce Brosnan!

In case you haven’t heard, the Irish actor has been in the country since February 15, for the filming of “The Misfits,” an upcoming gold heist flick. In-between takes, Brosnan appears to be enjoying the desert of Dubai — riding atop a camel and wearing traditional Arabian garb!
