Also, it has neither rhyme nor reason that he’s a homophobe.’ He blamed Alex Trebek for being — what was it I said to Will Ferrell that night? [Connery’s voice] ‘Not a fanatic of the women, are you Trebek?’ It doesn’t bode well. But then it’s effectively the most well-known thing I’ve ever done.”
Sorry to hear of the passing of #SeanConnery, my condolences to his family. Always loved doing my silly impressions of him, RIP 🙏🏻
