While discussing his role in the upcoming film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
based on Alan Moore's
comic book series), Sean Connery had this to say to Entertainment Weekly
"My first repsonse to the script was that it was a bit far-out, but that never stopped me before. It didn't stop me from doing
I'm so glad he remembers doing that film! It's just too bad they didn't get him on the commentary track, so he could describe how it felt to wear the wedding dress.
According to LXG producer Don Murphy, Connery also said:
"I got offered
The Lord of the Rings, and I turned it down because I didn't understand it. I was offered
The Matrix--twice--and I turned it down because I didn't understand it. I don't understand this movie, but I'll be damned if I'm going to turn it down."

, while he's at it.
Kinda makes you wonder what roles he was offered in LOTR (Gandalf
, apparently) and The Matrix
