James Bond: The Real Reason Sean Connery’s Skyfall Cameo Was Canceled

Aside from this being the latest nod to the franchise’s 50th anniversary, Connery would have been a perfect fit for the role as a native Scotsman who works in the Bond family home.

Mendes previously told the Huffington Post: “There was a definite discussion about [Connery playing Kincade] very, very early. But I think that’s problematic. Because, for me, it becomes too much… it would take you out of the movie. Connery is Bond and he will not return as another character. It’s like he was there. So, it was a very brief flirtation with that thought, but it was never going to happen, because I thought it would distract me.”

No doubt some fans would have been confused by the 82-year-old’s presence as well, wondering if James Bond was just a code name and Kincade was a retired 007 from the 1960s.
