Sean Connery cheered on Andy Murray at US Open, is awesome (video/GIF)

Legendary screen actor Sean Connery was in attendance at Flushing Meadows on Monday to cheer on fellow Scotsman Andy Murray as he secured his first major title by beating Novak Djokovic in an epic five-hour match. And if Sir Thomas Sean Connery was not your favorite James Bond before now, he will be after watching him pump his fist in approval of Murray’s performance.

Fantastic. No word on whether or not Sean Connery was on-hand for Murray’s post-match soiree where the party racked up a huge bar tab.

And my guess is if there were any moments of worry during the match regarding its ultimate outcome, Mr. Connery, like the character that made him famous enjoyed his martinis, was shaken, not stirred. BAM!
