Connery's Bond Cameo to be Cut?
Sean Connery's surprise cameo in new James Bond film Die Another
Day may be cut - after an inconsistency with the original Bond novels
Connery, who was the first on-screen Bond in the sixties, filmed
a small role as the father of the British spy, who is now played
by Pierce Brosnan for the upcoming movie.
However, just before the release of the action movie, the film's
bosses Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson were advised that
in the Ian Fleming novels which the successful franchise is based
upon, Bond is an orphan. The producers are still considering whether
to leave the footage in or not.
