Shelf-Demonshtrating vershion.Not so much an actor as a force of nature, tall, burly Scottish actor Sean Connery (born in 1930) made his career as the first actor to play James Bond on the big screen, one of many in a long line of Big Damn Heroes 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 sex-symbol status has proved 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 Never Say Never Again), and occasional press stories of misogyny on his part.Also played Henry Jones Sr., father of Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas had wanted to outdo the James Bond films; therefore, James Bond was both metaphorically and literally Indiana Jones's father. Clearly, Bad Ass is genetic.After starring as Allan Quartermain in the somewhat lacklustre The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 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 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. However, he has returned to voice the main character in the Scottish animated film Sir Billi. The film's site is here, and it looks... well... Oh God. *sob*A major supporter of Scottish independence (though the fact that he hasn't actually lived there for 50 years tends to undermine this a little). Particularly famous for Not Even Bothering with the Accent.Hash a dishtinctive way of shpeaking that everyone on airth believesh they can imitate, although Eddie Izzhard (and reportedly Tony Curran) ish particularly good at it.He is currently noted for being parodied on Saturday Night Live'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).Also notable for trying to shoot you in every video store in the world.And YOU'RE THE MAN NOW, DOG.There is even a website for things Sean Connery should say.He has won an AFI Life Achievement Award, with tributes from Mike Myers (whose James Bond films helped inspire Austin Powers), his later James Bond incarnation Pierce Brosnan, and James Earl Jones.Sean Connery is also notable for the "Rule Of Sean Connery," something that he (and few other people) have been able to accomplish in their lifetimes.
