Guy Ritchie’s Man from U.N.C.L.E. Adds Hugh Grant

\Actor Hugh Grant attends "Cloud Atlas" Photo Call during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival at TIFF Bell Lightbox on September 9, 2012 in Toronto, Canada.

Hugh Grant isn't taking over Tom Cruise's recently evacuated part in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. — that honor belongs to Man of Steel star Henry Cavill — but Grant is indeed jumping on board for a supporting role. The film is Guy Ritchie's take on a sixties spy show about the United Network Command for Law Enforcement (a.k.a. U.N.C.L.E.); Grant will lead Britain's Naval Intelligence. Alicia Vikander and Armie Hammer will co-star.
