News: RIP Sean Connery, Legendary Actor Dead at 90

Looks like 2020 delivered a terrible trick on Halloween with the news that legendary actor Sean Connery has died at the age of 90.  The actor known for his many roles, but most famously as the dashing and smooth agent James Bond, had a prolific career and life.  Sir Sean died peacefully in his sleep in the Bahamas, having been "unwell for some time", his son said.

He took on some fantastic roles including the iconic role as James Bond, an escaped thief that ravaged San Francisco in The Rock, and as the wonderful antagonist in SNL's celebrity jeopardy skits.  Connery's bond movies spanned many years and were loved by moviegoers.  He portrayed the iconic agent in: 

  • Dr No (1962)
  • From Russia with Love (1963)
  • Goldfinger (1964)
  • Thunderball (1965)
  • You Only Live Twice (1967)
  • Diamonds are Forever (1971)
  • Never Say Never Again (1983)
I know I am going to pour a martini tonight, shaken, not stirred to remember this wonderful actor!
