Actor Sean Connery is providing the voice for EA's latest James Bond game, From Russia With Love. The game will also feature the likeness of Connery as he was at the age of 33 when the film was made (he is now 74).

Using celebrity voices and likenesses in video games is nothing new (PC gamers may recall Mark Hamill's voice in the later Wing Commander games, for example). However, that Connery is willing and eager to participate in video games when his film career is still going strong indicates, once again, the emergence of video games as a dominant player in the entertainment industry.
