“Remington Steele” hoss, Pierce Brosnan, dipped into the Central Texas barbecue scene today when he stopped by Black’s BBQ in Lockhart for lunch. The moment was captured by Black’s and disseminated on the restaurant’s Instagram page. The actor, who also played some British spy, is likely in the area to shoot the AMC television series “The Son.” Brosnan will portray Eli, the patriarch of an oil and ranching family, in the story based on Austinite Phillip Meyer’s epic novel of the same name.
