* ''Film/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' '': The Recobbled Cut'' (2006)- originally released in 1993 as ''The Princess and the Cobbler'' and later in 1995 as ''Arabian Knight,'' but Connery's voice cameo as the otherwise mute Tack at the end of the film (recorded around the 60s or 70s) isn't present in either version due to the studios deciding to use a full voice from either Steve Lively or Matthew Broderick. This version restores it.

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* He also reprised the role of James Bond in the 2005 LicensedGame ''VideoGame/DoubleOhSevenFromRussiaWithLove''.

Not so much an actor as a force of nature, tall, burly Scottish actor '''[[UsefulNotes/KnightFever Sir]] [[SilverFox Thomas 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 [[CarpetOfVirility 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.

Although the Bond films made him a star after some less than impressive acting ventures Connery eventually tired of the role and the pressure the franchise put on him and made not one but two attempts to leave the franchise (barring his return for the unofficial ''Never Say Never Again''), which reportedly angered Bond producer Albert "Cubby" R. Broccoli. Connery continued on, often playing tough guys and the occasional LovableRogue. For a time his career was in a rut due to headlining a string of flops, which eventually led to reinventing himself as a CoolOldGuy and BadAssGrandpa type, and spent the latter half of his career playing TheMentor to younger heroes, such as Kevin Costner's street smart teacher in ''The Untouchables'' for which Connery won an Oscar.

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