55 minutes ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Six years ago, critics and audiences were taken completely by surprise by A Single Man. The sensitive, stylish drama, adapted from a 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, was about one day in the life of a dapper college professor (Colin Firth) who has decided to kill himself rather than live with the grief of his lover's death. For his poignant performance, Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. He lost - but when Firth scored the Best Actor Oscar the next year for The King's Speech, he took a moment to acknowledge A Single Man's first-time director from the podium: "And »

This Picture Confirms Whether Colin Firth Will Be Back For the Kingsman Sequel

13 July 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Everett Collection We've been speculating about whether Colin Firth's character would return for the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, and a new picture seems to confirm our suspicions: Harry Hart is back. Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal is playing an American agent in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and he shared a peek of Firth from the set of the new film. Either they're messing with us, or the brutally slain Harry is miraculously alive. Let's hope for the latter! Check out the picture, and until the sequel hits theaters in 2017, here are all the details we have so far.

Y'know, if you snooze you lose. Over the weekend, my Facebook buddy- and epic actor- Pedro Pascal shared a picture from the set of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. In it, he revealed that Colin Firth was, indeed, coming back as Harry Hart. It's something we at Lrm have known for ages, and there've been teases in the past, so I kind of just thought, "Everyone knows this." But then it became a story! So now I feel like I've let you down. I didn't share Pascal's post with you because I assumed you knew this already. But now let me spell it out:

Colin Firth Will Be Back As Harry Hart In Kingsman: The Golden Circle!

The welcome box office success of Kingsman: The Secret Service gave us a two things. We saw a star-making turn for Taron Egerton, who as Eggsy offered us a delightful anti-Bond secret agent, and Colin Firth had the chance to finally kick some arse.

Colin Firth pictured on the ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ set

12 July 2016 1:51 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all thought that Colin Firth met his maker in the very first Kingsman movie, but it looks like we presumed wrong. The British Oscar-winner has just been snapped on the set of the sequel, which is now shooting under the watchful eye of Matthew Vaughn.

We previous saw a teaser poster featuring the words “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” prompting speculation that a return for Firth was on the cards.

Now we may have the proof from co-star Pedro Pascale’s Instagram – or could it be a twin brother? Who knows? Take a look.

Colin Firth Returns In "Kingsman 2" Set Pics

12 July 2016 12:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite his apparent death in the first film, the casting of Colin Firth in the upcoming sequel "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" made it quite clear that his Harry Hart character would be back in the Matthew Vaughn-helmed follow-up to the spy action-comedy.

20th Century Fox obviously have little issue with it as a potential spoiler. Previously they released a teaser poster confirming Firth's return and now some set photos have gone up on social media from fellow cast members Taron Egerton and Pedro Pascal. The new photos show off a returning Firth in the film which is has been shooting ahead of a 2017 release. Halle Berry, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum and Elton John also star.

Colin Firth Returns as Harry Hart in New Kingsman 2 Set Photo

11 July 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after 20th Century Fox released their surprise blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service, talk of a sequel started to surface. Director Matthew Vaughn teased last spring that he had some ideas for the sequel, even hinting that Colin Firth's character Harry Hart may return in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, despite being seemingly killed off at the end of the first movie. Back in April, a new poster teased the return of Harry Hart, but we haven't gotten a glimpse at the actor since production began. Thankfully, Pedro Pascal has offered our first look at Colin Firth from the set.

Over the weekend, Pedro Pascal shared a photo on Instagram, which features the actor hiding behind Colin Firth, with the caption "Hide behind Harry." Unfortunately, the photo doesn't come with any details about how this Kingsman agent was brought back to life, but the poster from this spring featured the »

Colin Firth Will Indeed Return For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

11 July 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated and, sure enough, Colin Firth will be back as Harry Hart for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Word of Firth’s return first surfaced a few months back, when Taron Egerton posted a teasing photo that included Hart’s signature spectacles. Flying in the face of expectation – the way in which The Secret Service ended led fans to believe that Hart was firmly en route to meeting his maker – director Matthew Vaughn has opted to welcome back the charismatic Firth for another whirl, and an Instagram post from Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal all but confirms Hart’s role in the action sequel.

Colin Firth Spotted On The Set Of Kingsman: The Golden Circle Looking Alive & Well

11 July 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We learned back in April that Colin Firth would indeed be returning for Matthew Vaughn's highly anticipated Kingsman sequel - Kingsman: The Golden Circle - but, considering his character Harry Hart met an untimely demise in the first installment, it's been a bit of a conundrum in recent months as to how exactly he would make his return from the land of the (presumed) dead. Even today, the jury's still out on the circumstances behind his eagerly awaited resurrection, but we do have our first official look at Firth on set in costume sporting Harry's trademark eyeglasses. The photo was posted on Instagram by one of his new co-stars, Pedro Pascal (Game Of Thrones), who is playing a character by the name of Jack Daniels, over the weekend.

Colin Firth back from the dead for Kingsman 2

11 July 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A memorable death in the first instalment of Matthew Vaughn’s spy caper does not appear to have prevented the actor returning for a sequel

Last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service was notable for many things. The enormous box office (£319m worldwide). The divided critical opinion. The 38 complaints set to the BBFC, mostly taking issue with a protracted scene in which Colin Firth’s debonair spy-maker massacres scores of people in a church. And his character’s death soon after – apparently for good, presumed a bit of a blow for the sequel prospects.

But director Matthew Vaughn has subsequently hinted he might try to revive the character, and a promotional poster released in April for the new film featured his glasses, with the line “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”. Now, the rumours appear to have been confirmed: Firth has been pictured on the set, in what »
