Because Guy Ritchie directing Hugh Grant and Henry Cavill in a spy movie isn't quite British enough, Jared Harris has been added to the bill for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. The Mad Men star has been quite busy of late with roles in Lincoln and four other films; playing the part of "Sanders" (no details beyond that) represents a reunion for Harris and his Sherlock Holmes director. Filming for the '60s TV show adaptation is set to begin Sept. 9 in Naples, England, and Rome, with Cavill and Armie Hammer teaming up as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, respectively. Harris will presumably team with Grant to deliver clever lines while sipping tea and being absolutely dashing.
