Pierce Brosnan is still filming The Misfits in Dubai, and has been spotted out and about in the city by residents.

Earlier this week, the James Bond star shared photos of himself shooting in the desert and later at Atlantis, The Palm, and he has even been seen admiring artworks at the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Well, the UAE fun and games continue. Yesterday, on February 27, the actor shared a video as he sipped on a very fancy coffee, complete with a photo of his face, here in the UAE.

The very special coffee came courtesy of aviation company Jetex.

"Bond, James Bond," Brosnan's co-star Jamie Chung can be heard saying off camera, as the actor stirs his photo away on the cappuccino.

"Good morning one and all," Brosnan wrote in his Instagram caption. "I asked for a coffee and I got myself! Thank you Jetex Dubai ... camera work and laugh by the beautiful Jamie Chung."

Chung was also treated to a Jetex coffee featuring her own visage, in honour of the season finale of her TV show, The Gifted.

"How cool is that?" the American actress gushed on her Instagram story.

The Bond actor and his The Misfits co-star aren't the only celebrities to be given the special Jetex coffee treatment.

In October 2018, Dubai regular Will Smith shared a video of his own face on a coffee on his Instagram stories, saying, "Okay, that’s why I love Dubai. That’s crazy."

Earlier in the day, Brosnan was spotted filming at Jet Aviation Dubai at Al Maktoum International Airport. Wearing a more causal grey T-shirt and red baseball cap, the actor "happily" chatted to members of the public who approached him during takes, according to onlookers. Jet Aviation is a Swiss-founded aviation management and chartering company.

The Misfits story is still a bit of a mystery, although it has been confirmed that Brosnan is playing the lead role, as criminal Richard Pace, in the heist thriller.

Actor and producer Rami Jabar, told The National of the film: "I suppose the closest comparison I could make is that it’s a kind of an Ocean’s 11-type thing. It’s definitely in that sort of area. You’ll have to wait to find out more."

The movie is set to shoot in the UAE for 30 days, with locations in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Further filming will take place in Los Angeles.
