MATT HELM is truly a 'dead ringer' for Sean Connery, the dapper, debonair, 007 and favorite actor of many, whom many still consider to be the "sexiest man alive."
He so effectively recreates the classic appearance, voice, suave style and commanding presence of this motion picture legend that scores of people have believed they were actually meeting and talking with the real Sean Connery. They ask which films he most enjoyed making, who his favorite co-stars were, request photos with him and even his autograph. Some have brought their cell phones to him, asking if he could "just please say a few words" to their wives or girlfriends already waiting on the other end of the line, who have been "in love with him for years" according to the gentlemen making the requests.
MATT HELM was hired by the famous San Francisco Fairmont Hotel to be 'Sean Connery' at the ceremonial grand unveiling of its newly re-enhanced, top floor Penthouse Suite. This 6000 square foot suite was used in the classic Sean Connery film: 'The Rock', which also featured Nicolas Cage and Ed Harris. Many American, Europian and Asian dignitaries as well as Secret Service Agents were in attendance. The hotel management later reported that during the ceremony, upon hearing that the suite would now be renting for $15,000.00 per night, some of the female guests were (light heartedly) asking if that price included 'Sean Connery.' Some in attendance also reportedly left the event believing they had just met and talked with 'Mr. Connery', himself.

Here are just a few reviews from clients in the recent past:
"Dear Mr. Helm, Wow! Where do I begin? First of all, thank you for such a great performance at my boyfriend's 50th birthday party! Everyone was so impressed with your act! When you arrived, my brother-in-law ran up and said, 'He looks more like Sean Connery than Sean Connery!' You took the information I had given you about my boyfriend and delivered it in a very funny, yet respectful manner. What a delight! Given that the majority of the audience members were of various divisions of law enforcement, you showed a great deal of appreciation for what they do... I was also very impressed with your attentiveness to our guests as they pulled at you for pictures, or because they were just wanting to mingle with you.
We look forward to seeing you again!"
"Dear Matt, As I said on the phone, your evening with Toni was an unqualified success! Days afterward, she is still walking on air because of your appearance at her birthday party in my home! I have never before seen her speechless as when you walked in! Your resemblance was extrordinary, but your demeanor was especially outstanding... I think she almost forgot you were an impersonator and talked in a surreal way to 'Sean Connery' her idol... So congratulations! You pulled the scene off better than I could have dreamed! Thanks for a fine performance and a lot of fun!"
