Connery to Voice Animated Vet

Sir Sean Connery will come out of his retirement from films to supply the voice of a vet in a low-budget animated Scottish short from Glasgow Animation, reports BBC NEWS.

The former 007 star will play the title role in SIR BILLI THE VET, which will be set in the Highlands.

Connery agreed to take part despite having recently said he would make no more movies because he was "fed up with the idiots" in Hollywood.

Actor Alan Cumming will voice his faithful companion Gordon the Goat.

Sir Billi is a "distinguished gentleman" who lives in a remote village.He bears a slight resemblance to Connery, sporting a gray moustache and a bald-head.

TV presenter Gail Porter supplies the voice for Sir Billi's daughter, single mother Lady Serena, while Ruby Wax plays a brash American.

Richard Briers and Miriam Margolyes also appear in the cast of the film, which is due to be finished next summer.
