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.
