Jeff Bridges Announces ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Casting With New Teaser Poster
With every awesome addition to the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, we ask, “Could this cast get any better?” And then another fantastic actor joins the lineup. So if we just continue saying that after every casting announcement, it shouldn’t be long before Tom Hardy and Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron join this thing, right? That day isn’t today, but the Kingsman sequel does have another very cool addition: Jeff Bridges.
The artist formerly known as The Dude announced his casting in the Kingsman sequel via Twitter, offering this teaser poster similar to the ones shared by co-stars like Elton John (!!!) and Channing Tatum:
“The only Golden Circle I want vexing me is the one my glass leaves behind on the table.” Are we sure Jeff Bridges didn’t write that line himself? There are very few people who could casually drop “vexing” into a sentence, and he’s probably at the top of that list, just above Sherlock Holmes.
Bridges joins a packed cast that includes Halle Berry as the head of the CIA, his Big Lebowski co-star Julianne Moore as a new villain named Poppy, Game of Thrones fave Pedro Pascal as the wonderfully-named Jack Daniels, and Channing Tatum and Elton John in unspecified roles. Taron Egerton is reprising his role as Eggsy, the young thug-turned-world-class-agent, with Mark Strong as Merlin and Colin Firth making an unexpected return as Harry Hart.
Matthew Vaughn is directing Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which hits theaters on June 16, 2017.
