Pierce Brosnan Is Unrecognizable as Prince Naseem Hamed’s Trainer in Movie About Boxer’s Life

That’s Pierce Brosnan, right?

In preparation for his role as boxer Prince Naseem Hamed’s trainer, Brendan Ingle, in the upcoming sports drama Giant, the actor donned a very different outfit on Tuesday, April 23, than he typically does.

When he was spotted on the Yorkshire, England, set of the film, Brosnan, 70, had incredibly thin stark-white hair and was dressed in a track jacket and black slacks. In a different picture, the former James Bond star was seen smiling and wearing a beige jacket.

Earlier this month, a number of media, including Variety and Deadline, disclosed that the Irish actor would play the Irish-born Ingle in Giant, with Amir El-Masry as Hamed, with Sylvester Stallone serving as executive producer. directed by Rowan Athale based on his own screenplay.

According to a summary made public by Variety and Deadline, the movie “is the true story of Hamed’s humble beginnings on the tough working-class streets of Sheffield and his discovery by Ingle, himself a steel industry worker turned boxing trainer.”
In spite of the widespread racism and Islamophobia in Britain in the 1980s and 1990s, “their unlikely partnership, along with Naz’s unorthodox style, cocky persona, and sheer dominance in the ring, propelled them to the top of boxing’s elite and unprecedented levels of global superstardom,” the synopsis reads.

The 50-year-old Hamed, a five-time featherweight world champion, was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2015.
At the age of 77, Ingle, a professional boxer himself, passed away in May 2018. Born in Dublin, he trained multiple world-champion boxers, notably Hamed, throughout his life.
