Have you seen Men In Tights where Patrick Stewart plays Sean Connery playing Richard the Lionheart?
A cameo in a parody is pretty much the exception that proves the rule, I should think.
I suppose the main difference is that Patrick can act.
So can Connery, it's just all too often that he doesn't. Henry Jones, Sr. isn't Marko Ramius, and neither is James Bond. His greatest performance might be Marko Ramius in The Hunt for Red October, but it's the one that absolutely typecast the last stages of his career.

Try First Knight to see one of his best performances. There's shades of subtlety in that you don't see from him very often in his post-Red October work.
