Channing Tatum Cast in ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’

Man, this cast just keeps getting better and better.

Set to continue the story and bring back a number of the same characters as the first film, news for director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle has been seemingly endless at this point. Following the title’s reveal and our very first plot details for the film, we then got word that Colin Firth could possibly be returning as Harry in the sequel as well, in addition to the new castings of Game of Thrones‘ Pedro Pascal and music legend, Elton John.

So yeah, it’s been a busy week for all of you Kingsman fans out there.

Now, the film has just added yet another well-known name to its cast in one of the most popular movie stars working in the entertainment industry today, as Channing Tatum has revealed he will be joining the film’s cast with a cheeky new tweet for the film:

The image itself is similar to Taron Egerton’s tweet about the film recently, and while it doesn’t reveal all that much about Tatum’s character in the film, it seems like we at least know what kind of glasses he’ll be sporting, and that he’s a Southerner of some kind as well. Thanks to the “aw shucks!” text in the poster’s background, which likely means he’ll be a member of the Statesmen in some way, the American version of The Kingsman.

Halle Berry will be playing the co-head of the organization alongside Pascal’s Jack Daniels, who meet Eggsy and Merlin when they must travel from Britain to America following a bombing of the Kingsman HQ. While not much else is known about the plot at this point, we do know that Julianne Moore will be playing the film’s villain, Poppy, and will likely be responsible for the attacks on the Kingsman in some way.

I feel like Tatum’s career over the past few years has had an arc similar to that of Leonardo DiCaprio or even Brad Pitt, who went from baby-faced movie stars to legitimately awards caliber actors in their own right, and if you haven’t already seen Tatum’s performance in Foxcatcher, I highly recommend you do so at some point because I always thought he managed to steal the film from both Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell, despite the other two receiving much higher praise for their performances. After his brief, but memorable turn in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight last year though, I can only imagine what it is that he’ll be bringing to The Golden Circle.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle will hit theatres on June 16th, 2017.
