Pierce Brosnan has one big secret talent, and it has nothing to do with James Bond. The actor is a skilled fire-eater, and even showed off his dangerous trick during an episode of "The Muppets" in the 1990s. Unfortunately, the gig went very wrong. Brosnan explained in an interview with Contact Music:
"The last time I did the fire-eating was on 'The Muppets.' It was just after 'GoldenEye.' They called up and they said, 'Do you sing ? Do you dance?' I said, 'No, not really. But I do a fire-eating act — well, I used to.' They said, 'Oh great! Wonderful!' The last segment of the show was me fire-eating. I made my own brand — I had the kerosene, I was in the tuxedo. The prop guy was there and he said, 'This (other) stuff is great. It doesn't taste of anything, you don't smell it.' I went, 'This is good. I'll try this.' It was like rocket fuel. I blew it, it all came back into my mouth and my mouth blew up. I had blisters for the rest of the show." Ouch! —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
