Kingsman: The Golden Circle just added a serious dude to is cast in the form of the legend that is Jeff Bridges.

The actor simply tweeted #Kingsman, confirming his addition to the cast which will see him reunite with The Big Lebowski co-star Julianne Moore.

Jeff Bridges joining any movie is always good news.

Taron Egerton is back for the sequel reprising his role as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin alongside new cast Julianne Moore and Halle Berry.

Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal has also been cast as Jack Daniels. It’s also rumoured that Colin Firth will return as Harry Hart.

In terms of the plot, film executives continue to remain pretty tight-lipped on the situation however, director Matthew Vaughn caught up with Empire Magazine and gave them a bit of a heads up: “I didn’t know if I wanted to direct this or not. I was worried about the villain. Spy films are only as good as their villains. Then one morning I woke up with the whole storyline in place, and a new villain plot.”

It sounds like it’s all coming together nicely then! After the success of its predecessor, we’ll be hoping that Kingsman: The Golden Circle delivers.

The film is due to start production later in the year with the film being released in cinemas on June 10, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
