As the 22nd installment of James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" is well in the production, it is revealed that the former James Bond depicter Sean Connery has considered to return to the super-spy film franchise. However, according to press release, the seven time Bond star won't be reprising his notable role, instead he is eyeing to be the bad guy.
The star of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" expressed his desire stating, "I wouldn't mind coming back as a Bond villain. But I don't think they would pay me enough. They don't pay the money for other parts, only for the Bond character, although that wasn't the case when I was doing it. " Allegedly, the 77-year-old Academy Award-winning actor has been involved in negotiations to land a villain role with the film's producers since Daniel Craig has been tapped to bring the Ian Fleming's agent back to the big screen with "Casino Royale".
Connery has portrayed Bond in seven of the super-spy agent films in the period of 1962 to 1983. During those time, he has appeared in "Dr No", "From Russia With Love", "Goldfinger", "Thunderball", "You Only Live Twice", "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Never Say Never Again". As the actor who has played Bond, Connery praises Craig as well as the last film saying, "I think Daniel Craig is a terrific choice. I think they're going back to a more realistic type of Bond movie as I don't think they could have gone much further with the special effects."
