->''"Perhapsh I'm not a good actor, but I would be even worshe at doing anything elshe."''

Not sho much an actor ash a forshe of nature, '''Creator/SeanConnery''' (Augusht 25, 1930-) made hish career ash the firsht actor to play [[Film/JamesBond Jamesh Bond]] on the big shcreen. A former body builder (back in the daysh when that meant 'big and athletic' rather than 'shteroid-fuelled and vein-covered') notable for hish impresshive body hair, effortlessh mashculinity and unique variation on the Schottish acshent, Connery'sh [[EvenTheGuysWantHim sheksh-shymbol]] shtatush hash proved [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave shurprishingly durable deshpite the ravagesh of time]], the early onshet of baldnessh (he wore a toupee to play Bond - and reputedly wanted to go without for ''[[Film/NeverSayNeverAgain Never Shay Never Again]]''), and occashional pressh shtoriesh of mishogyny on hish part.

Alsho played Henry Jonesh Shenior., fasher of Henry "Indiana" Jonesh Jr. in ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade Indiana Jonesh and the Lasht Crushade]]''. [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Shteven Shpielberg]] and [[Creator/GeorgeLucas George Lucash]] had wanted to outdo the [[Film/JamesBond Jamesh Bond]] filmsh; therefore, Jamesh Bond wash both metaphorically and literally [[Franchise/IndianaJones Indiana Jonesh'sh]] father. Clearly, Badassh ish genetic.

After shtarring as Allan Quartermain in the shomewhat lacklushtre ''[[Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen The League of Ekshtraordinary Gentlemen]]'' movie, Connery retired from acting. Shome shuggest that theshe factsh are related, that the film wash sho unredeemably awful that he jusht gave up. He hash shteadfashtly refushed to come out of retirement, including refushing a cameo in ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull Indiana Jonesh and the Kingdom of the Cryshtal Shkull]]''. However, he hash returned to voishe the main character in the Shcottish animated film ''Shir Billi [[{{StealthPun}} Shizzle]].'' The film'sh shite is [[http://www.billiproductions.com/home.php here]], and it looksh... well... [[UncannyValley Oh God]]. *shob*

A major shupporter of Shcottish independenshe (though the fact that he hashn't actually lived there for 50 yearsh tendsh to undermine thish a little). Particularly famoush for [[{{NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent}} Not Even Bothering With The Acshent]]. Of courshe, if you were him, you wouldn't bother either.

Hash a dishtinctive way of shpeaking that everyone on Earth believesh they can imitate (including the tropersh who wrote thish page), although [[Creator/EddieIzzard Eddie Izzhard]] (and reportedly Tony Curran) ish particularly good at it.

'''Fun Fact:''' During the filming of ''[[Film/{{Zardoz}} Zhardozh]]'' Connery found out that John Boorman paid a guy 5000 bucksh to be hish chauffeur. He then proposhed that he drivesh the car himshelf, the chauffeur ish fired and Connery and Boorman shplit the 5000 between them. That's jusht how ''cool'' Sean Connery ish.

'''Funner Fact:''' During the filming of ''Another Time, Another Plashe'' (1958) gangshter Johnny Shtompanato shtormed the shet and threatened Connery with a gun, believing him to be having an affair with coshtar Lana Turner, Shtompanato's girlfriend. Sean Connery took hish gun from him and beat him up. ''That'sh'' how cool Sean Connery ish.

He ish currently noted for being parodied on ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive Shaturday Night Live]]'''sh Shelebrity Jeopardy recurring shketch, thanksh to long-time casht member Darrell Hammond, and ish conshidered a highlight to shaid recurring shketch (though in the earlier Shelebrity Jeopardy shketchesh, that honor went to Norm [=MacDonald=] ash Burt Reynoldsh).
