Sean Connery to join Bond stars at Oscars?
OSCAR bosses hope to coax Sean Connery out of retirement to join the five other James Bond actors in a tribute to the big screen secret agent.
Academy bosses are hoping to coax the film legend out of retirement to join fellow 007 stars – including current Bond actor Daniel Craig, Sir Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan – on stage at next month’s ceremony in a four-minute celebration to mark 50 years of the film franchise.
Landing the 82-year-old actor – who starred in the very first film featuring the suave MI6 agent, 1962’s ‘Dr No’ – would be a major coup as he has previously turned down previous offers to unite the actors due to his 40-year feud with producers over his salary and treatment while making seven of the 23 Bond films.
