Michael Bay was advised the rock’s price range had been reduce, then Sean Connery stepped in
Of course everyone loves a good story about how Sean Connery gets Ornery, especially with a casual executive, but what I really love is Jerry Bruckheimer’s dedication. For those of you who didn’t know, Jerry Bruckheimer is a behind the scenes legend. His profile has grown in recent years, but prior to The Rock he had produced Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop, Days Of Thunder, and Bad Boys, among others. Among almost everyone else, he would have been the one expected to deal with studio managers, but Sean Connery was no ordinary actor. He always spoke his mind and had the experience and dedication to the craft to support it.
