Sean Connery, who gained fame playing Cold War secret agent 007 in the James Bond series, and Jason Robards, who won an Oscar for his performance as a Watergate newspaper editor in “All the President’s Men,” will be saluted for lifetime achievement at this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. Also to be honored will be singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder, dancer Judith Jamison and pianist-comedian Victor Borge. The 22nd annual awards will be presented Dec. 4 at a dinner at the State Department. The next day President and Mrs. Clinton will throw a White House reception for the recipients, followed by a gala performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, to be taped for TV broadcast later in December.
