Darrell Hammond paid unique homage to movie legend Sean Connery upon news of his death and recollected about parodying him on Saturday Night Live a number of years back.
Connery, best called the very first star to play James Bond onscreen, passed away at age 90 in the Bahamas. News of his death was revealed on Saturday, Oct. 31.
His boy, Jason Connery, had actually stated in a declaration, “A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor.”
“Sorry to hear of the passing of #SeanConnery, my condolences to his family,” Hammond composed on Twitter, along with a video of him impersonating the Scottish Oscar winner on a 1999 episode of SNL.
The reveal alum played Connery a number of times on the NBC late-night funny series in the ’90s and ’00s, appearing along with Will Ferrell‘s Alex Trebek in a Celebrity Jeopardy! repeating sketch. Hammond’s character constantly sparred with the video game program host by making unsuitable jokes about him and his mom and screwing up the titles of Jeopardy! classifications. He repeated the function on SNL‘s 40th anniversary unique in 2015.
“Always liked doing my ridiculous impressions of him on SNL, and I heard he when spoke extremely of me on The Tonight Show,” Hammond composed on Instagram. “Thanks for making me look better than I am man, RIP ‘Mr Connery you wear me out!’ ‘You didn’t say that last night when I was pumping moo goo gai pan all over your tonsils!’ #SeanConnery #RIPSeanConnery #SNL #SaturdayNightLive.”
