With the Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, and apparently Colin Firth all set to reprise their secret agent roles once again in next year’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle, director Matthew Vaughn’s highly-anticipated sequel to the 2015 breakout, hit blockbuster film has been establishing and amassing a fairly incredible cast for itself over the past few months. Now, it looks like the movie just got yet another stellar new addition to its cast as well.

The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, will be joining the upcoming sequel it turns out, as the actor announced his involvement earlier today through the release of another character-themed poster for the film, similar to all of the other previous announcements as well.

Check out the tweet below:

Bridges now joins fellow new additions Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, the recently confirmed Elton John, Pedro Pascal, and Julianne Moore in the film, with the latter actress set to play the film’s lead villain, Poppy.

Judging by the poster itself, Bridge’s onscreen (and offscreen) personality, as well as the film’s plot, I can only imagine that the iconic actor character will be somehow involved with the Statesmen in the film, the American versions of the Kingsman (led by Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal’s characters), who Egerton and Strong’s characters seek refuge with after the Kingsman HQ is destroyed. The fact that I could 100% hear Bridges’ voice while reading the poster, should act as a substantial sign towards the brilliance behind this casting choice as well.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set to hit theatres on June 16th, 2017.
