Not so much an actor as a force of nature, tall, burly Scottish actor [[SilverFox Sean Connery]] (August 25, 1930-) made his career as the first actor to play Film/JamesBond on the big screen, one of many in a long line of BigDamnHeroes that he would play over the course of his career. A former milkman, brick layer, truck driver and body builder (back in the days when that meant 'big and athletic' rather than 'steroid-fuelled and vein-covered') notable for his impressive body hair, effortless masculinity and unique variation on the Scottish accent, Connery's [[EvenTheGuysWantHim sex-symbol]] status has proved [[SilverFox surprisingly durable despite the ravages of time]], the early onset of baldness (he wore a toupee to play Bond - and reputedly wanted to go without for ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''), and occasional press stories of misogyny on his part notwithstanding.

After starring as Allan Quartermain in the somewhat lacklustre ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' movie, Connery retired from acting. Some suggest that these facts are related, that the film was so terrible that he just gave up. He has steadfastly refused to come out of retirement, including refusing a cameo in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''. However, he has returned to voice the main character in the Scottish animated film ''Sir Billi.'' The film's site is [[http://www.billiproductions.com/home.php here]], and it looks... well... [[UncannyValley Oh God]]. *sob*

Also played Henry Jones Sr., father of Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas had wanted to outdo the ''Film/JamesBond'' films; therefore, Film/JamesBond was both metaphorically and literally IndianaJones's father. Clearly, BadAss is genetic.

He is currently noted for being parodied on ''SaturdayNightLive'''s Celebrity Jeopardy recurring sketch, thanks to long-time cast member Darrell Hammond, and is considered a highlight to said recurring sketch (though in the earlier Celebrity Jeopardy sketches, that honor went to Norm [=MacDonald=] as Burt Reynolds).
