Bond Actors Rumored To Appear In 50 Year Franchise Tribute on Oscar Telecast

Producers behind the 2013 Academy Awards are reportedly set to mark the 50th anniversary of the JAMES BOND film franchise by bringing together all six 007 stars from SIR SEAN CONNERY to DANIEL CRAIG for the first time.

Industry rumors suggest show bosses Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are planning a spectacular tribute to the superspy series for Hollywood's big night - and it will include appearances from reclusive Connery, George Lazenby, Sir Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and current action star Craig, who will all step onstage as soul sensation Adele performs her Bond theme tune Skyfall.

If the reports are true, it will be a huge coup for the Academy - 82-year-old Connery, the first ever Bond actor, vowed to retire from public appearances in 2011 and has largely remained out of the spotlight ever since.

Meanwhile, the 85th Academy Awards will also feature a special celebration of movie musicals of the past decade, with Chicago, Dreamgirls and the Oscar-nominated Les Miserables being showcased during the 24 February (13)

I randomly saw Sean Connery leading a troupe of bag-pipers through Central Park a couple of years ago, all kilted up. I don't think I was hallucinating.
