Mark Strong joins the already terrific cast of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

09.18.2010

Add another name to the already stellar cast of the upcoming adaptation of TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY. And f*ck it, let's throw a cherry on top in the form of a Russian hottie as well!

The Daily Mail is reporting that actor Mark Strong (GREEN LANTERN, KICK-ASS) is the latest to join the Tomas Alfredson (LET THE RIGHT ONE IN) adaptation of the excellent John Le Carré novel, joining the likes of Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Jared Harris, Ciaran Hinds, and Benedict Cumberbatch. It's not yet clear who Strong will be portraying. But that cherry I mentioned? Lovely actress Svetlana Khodchenkova (pictured below) will also be featured in the film, playing a Russian spy.

The story - adapted by Peter Morgan with John Le Carré - is about retired intelligence agent George Smiley (Oldman) who's called back to service when a high-ranking member of MI6 is suspected of being a Soviet mole. It's based on the first novel of Le Carré's Karla Trilogy which is followed up by The Hounourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People.

TINKER, TAILOR, SOLIDER, SPY shoots this month in the UK.

Extra Tidbit: I wonder if Strong's playing another bad guy.

Mark Strong is always a good thing. Was brilliant in Sherlock Holmes.

Ugh.

Well that WAS a good cast. Strong couldn't act his way out of a pissed on paper bag. His role in Robin Hood was easily one of the year's worst.

Couldn't disagree more. Strong was excellent in Syriana and Body of Lies (in which he outshined both DiCaprio and Crowe).

I have such a hard on for this movie as I absolutely love le Carre's novels, especially Tinker Tailor. Not sure who Strong would portrayed but I think he's badass. Stll wish Fassbender was is this though!
