Hammond was a cast member on the late-night sketch show from 1995 until 2009. In that time, one of his most popular characters was a crass, mischievous impersonation of the late James Bond star who perpetually vexed Will Ferrell’s Alex Trebek on the show’s “Celebrity Jeopardy!” parody. Hammond even returned to the role to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “SNL” in 2015.

He took to Instagram to eulogize the star shortly after news of Connery’s death broke.

“Sorry to hear of the passing of #SeanConnery, my condolences to his family,” Hammond shared along with a photo of himself as Connery. “Always loved doing my silly impressions of him on SNL, and I heard he once spoke highly of me on The Tonight Show.”

He concluded: “Thanks for making me look better than I am man, RIP.”

Hammond joins the myriad of celebrities who took to social media following news of the actor’s death, ...

The Scottish actor’s family confirmed his death to Fox News in a statement via his rep.

“He died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family,” Connery’s rep told Fox News on behalf of his wife, Micheline Roquebrune, and his two sons, Jason and Stephane.
