According to Indiewire’s The Playlist, Guy Ritchie’s big screen adaptation of the classic action TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will be adding British actor Hugh Grant to its ever-expanding cast list. Instead of the rumored lead, Grant will play a supporting role alongside Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.
In The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Hugh Grant will be playing the head of British Naval Intelligence, which means the man can use his natural accent, although we doubt that he’ll use the foppish routine he does so well in rom-coms.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. focuses on a pair of secret agents (played by Cavill and Hammer), who are in the frontlines in the fight against the terrorist organization dubbed as THRUSH.
