Sean Connery set to join fellow James Bond actors on stage at the Oscar

SEAN CONNERY could make a comeback at this year’s Oscars – as bosses try to get all six Bond stars on stage.

Sir Sean, 82, is retired from acting but bosses hope he will appear with current 007 Daniel Craig in a four-minute tribute to the films.

Last week, the televised tribute was announced and the other former 007s – Sir Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan – were invited to take part.

Sir Sean has shunned Bond reunions after a four-decade feud with film bosses over his pay and treatment.

But associates of the Scot say the Oscars offer is a “different proposition”.
He may also be joined by Adele, who would be making her first public performance in almost a year by singing her Bond theme hit Skyfall live on February 24.

An Oscars source said: “Sir Sean has been invited to take to the stage along with Daniel and the other 007s. As yet, we’ve not had a no from him. Normally he is quick to turn things down.

“Sean’s relationship with the Oscars is good and we’re hoping he’ll appear.

“His issues with the Bond producers are not our business and we hope he will overlook that as we pay tribute to what he has done.

“It would be magnificent to see him up there with the other actors – and quite a coup.”

He added: “We’re very close to getting Adele to talk to us about a performance too. Until she is officially nominated this week for the best film song Oscar, we can’t invite her.”

Sir Sean earned just £2million for the Bond films and his image was used to promote the franchise in the 70s and 80s without him earning a penny.
