A hole in my memory

Have you ever had a 'brain fart' moment where you can't remember someone's name?
Like, someone you've seen in movies and on TV LOTS OF TIMES??
There's this guy... and I can't remember his name, though I can see his face in my head as clear as day.
It's been bugging me all day long.
Why can't I remember his name??
It's going to hit me soon, I hope... I'll be laying in bed, trying to sleep, when all of a sudden I'll remember and will shout out loud in the darkness "THAT'S his name!! It's....."
But for right now, I'm stuck.
I know if I described him, you would ALL know his name, and would think I was a total idiot for not being able to remember it.
Hopefully by the next time I log on to the computer to read your comments, I'll have remembered his name and won't need to have it shouted at me.
But, just in case, here goes:
He was in Remington Steele. He was James Bond for awhile. He was in a movie called The Thomas Crown Affair. He has a British accent.
WHO IS HE????????
And why the hell can't I remember his name???? I can see his face, I can hear his voice & his accent, I just can't remember his name.
All I can think of is Bronson Pinchot, but I know that's not right. Bronson Pinchot is another guy altogether, who played "Balki" on the sitcom Perfect Strangers, and was in a movie called Blame It On The Bellboy.
Aggggh! This is so frustrating.
I know I could easily look it up on Google or Wikipedia, but it's the principle of the thing, y'know?? I want to remember it on my own!!
So, y'know what, I'm not going to read my comments until I remember the name on my own. Feel free to shout his name as loud as you want, but I won't read it 'til I've already figured it out.
Grrrrr!
Must..... remember..... name......


UPDATE: Now I remember! Pierce Brosnan! See, I almost had it right with "Bronson Pinchot", my brain was confusing "Bronson" with "Brosnan", and the initials "BP" with "PB".

Onionboy: Yes, thanks. I remembered his name at 5:00 this morning, finally. One of these days you're going to have to explain why you don't watch TV or movies!

Morgen: I dunno about the "best Bond ever", but yep, that's him. I still don't know why my brain couldn't remember his name for an entire day. The neurons just weren't firing right, I guess!

Pierce: Sorry, babe. My favorite Bond was Sean Connery. And I never really got into Remington Steele. And I only saw The Thomas Crown Affair once.
Maybe if you'd like to "visit" more often, to help keep my memory refreshed....
