Sir Sean Connery rumoured to join past 007 actors in Oscar tributeThe Daily Record
has claimed that Sir Sean Connery may be lured back in to making a public appearance at the Academy Awards next month as part of the tribute to the James Bond film series as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Connery has been retired from public appearances for a couple of years, and turned down invitations to take part in the "Everything or Nothing" documentary last year.
But the lustre of the Oscars could bring him back. According to the paper, associates of the Scot say the Oscars offer is a âdifferent propositionâ.
Current star Daniel Craig and the four other former 007's - George Lazenby, Sir Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan - are all reported to have been invited already.
An Oscars 'source' told the tabloid: "Sir Sean has been invited to take to the stage along with Daniel and the other 007s. As yet, weâve not had a no from him. Normally he is quick to turn things down. Seanâs relationship with the Oscars is good and weâre hoping heâll appear. His issues with the Bond producers are not our business and we hope he will overlook that as we pay tribute to what he has done. It would be magnificent to see him up there with the other actors â and quite a coup. Weâre very close to getting Adele to talk to us about a performance too. Until she is officially nominated this week for the best film song Oscar, we canât invite her."
