Sir Sean Connery will be involved in the Scottish National Party's campaign for the Holyrood elections, according to party officials.
Sir Sean has been a long-time supporter
The Nationalists said Sir Sean, who is the party's most high profile supporter and has gone on the road with the SNP in past campaigns, will assist "in some way" in the run-up to polling on 1 May.
However, the SNP said it could not be any more specific about his role and, although he has no plans to visit in the near future, an appearance on the campaign trail could not be ruled out.
A party spokeswoman said: "Sean has just finished a film which ran over for six months.
"Currently he has no plans to come to Scotland over the coming months.
I can assure you he will be involved in some way in our forthcoming election plan
"But he can be impulsive and could give us a week's notice about a visit here, so we can not rule out the possibility he might be over before May."
The 72-year-old star, who made his name playing James Bond and has had a string of movie hits since then, has just finished playing an adventurer in the film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
The SNP has denied that links with Edinburgh-born Sir Sean have been less strong since Alex Salmond stood down as leader in 2000.
The spokeswoman said: "We are in regular contact with Sir Sean, as much so as ever.
"I can assure you he will be involved in some way in our forthcoming election plan."
