Sean Connery found fame and fortune as the suave, sophisticated British agent, James Bond. After six Bond films, Connery yearned to break from the Bond image, and eventually earned an Oscar as veteran Chicago cop, Jimmy Malone, in Untouchables, The (1987). A genuine movie star, his co-stars often complement his professionalism. Connery continues to be at his best when he plays no-nonsense characters.
Turned down the role of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings series because he didn't want to film down in New Zealand for 18 months.
Declared in 2003 that he would not return home until Scotland is an independent country.
By the way. It´s a bit funny that Spielberg wanted to direct a James Bond-movie, and ended up with Indiana Jones insted - an got "the real James Bond" to feature in the Indiana Jones-triology.
