And now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the two lead actors will be joined by Hugh Grant.

The actor known mostly for romantic comedies will play the head of British Naval Intelligence, an ally of main characters Napoleon Solo (Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Hammer).

    The franchise will be severely hampered by Armie Hammer being pried ino the Ilya Kuryakin role just as I predicted would happen if he was used for the Lone Ranger. a better choice for Kuryakin would be Paul Bettany or Christian Bale, this eras “man of a thousand faces” and accents. Hammer is not a good action movie actor and its a shame a franchise as promising as the man from Uncle is about to be wasted or at least stunted. Man from Uncle should go BIG not mediocre.
