How infinitely sad to hear the news Sir Sean Connery has passed away. He and Roger were friends for many decades and Roger always maintained Sean was the best ever James Bond. RIP

Sean Connery was a legend, one of the greatest actors of all time. He provided endless entertainment for all of us & inspiration for me. I’m not just saying that because he was a bodybuilder who placed in the Mr. Universe contest! He was an icon. My thoughts are with his family.

He was my Dad’s James Bond, so Dad supported Mr. Connery’s career his entire life, always taking me to see any movie his fave actor was in. I have sweet memories of watching Dad watch his movie idol. So Sean Connery’s passing also feels like I’m losing Dad again. RIP, Dr. Jones. pic.twitter.com/8ElVyac1kV

RIP Sir Sean Connery. He poked me in the chest once backstage at Spamalot. Hard. It hurt. He meant for it to hurt. I’d slipped in an impression of him in the show during the Knights Who Say Ni. Turns out he hated impressions of him. That rib is still out of place. #RIPSeanConnery

Sean Connery was a movie legend, even far into his golden years. Our strongest Bonds were formed by him, and he was Untouchable. He passed today at age 90, a suave hero to the end.

I met Sean Connery when he came to see The Homecoming in New York and I told him how much I liked his great work in Lumet’s The Hill. “Never made a dime”, said the Scotsman, not ungraciously. RIP.
