Though his character remains unnamed, we do know he'll be playing an American agent of some description, and from the looks of things he's been visiting the same tailor as Colin Firth's Harry Hart - who is expected to return despite seemingly being killed off in the first film. Kingsman: The Golden Circle also stars Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Edward Holcroft, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Sir Elton John.

Casting is well underway on Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle it seems. After hearing earlier this week that Elton John had come on board, we’re now learning from Deadline that Channing Tatum is also joining the impressive cast, which already includes Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal, among others.
