Jared Harris Reveals His Link To Napoleon Solo In 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

Batman vs. Superman has us so anxious about the start of filming, that for the last few weeks we've kind of forgotten about Solo and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. *the horror.* Lucky for us, Latino Review is not living in the Man of Steel 2 bubble of uncertainty like we are, and they had the presence of mind to ask Henry's costar Jared Harris about who he plays in U.N.C.L.E. -- His response was pretty revealing.

Jared and Henry share a laugh on the London set of U.N.C.L.E. 

I play a CIA agent who is initially involved in training and running Napoleon Solo. So it’s running him as a spy as you would like. It’s set in the 60s and it’s a Guy Ritchie film. It has a great mixture of action and comedy. And there’s fantastic plotting.

Action?? COMEDY??? perfect profile aaaand hot suits???!!

We're right back to counting down to the film's release. Less than nine months to go now! - If you're just joining in the Solo love, catch up now 1/2.


  1. This should be a big hit. Read where it only has to do 130 million to break even and it will easily do double that IMO.

  2. Thanks HCN....I was missing Solo with all the other news going on... <3 <3 <3

    1. I miss Solo too. I am infinitely more excited to see Henry play Solo than I am to see him play Superman (although I'm excited about that too). I guess I like movies that are more realistic as opposed to comic book. Just think how gorgeous he's going to look in all those 60's era suits and all the witty dialogue! Be still my heart!

    2. Yeah. I think Batman vs Superman is Henry's last outing as Superman. There is speculation, which I know means nothing, that a new actor will be brought in for Justice League films. That is great. I want him in realistic movies. No silly spandex suits. I'll take Henry in a 3-piece any day. I think WB gave Henry UNCLE because they knew they wouldn't be using him as Superman anymore..

    3. We don't know where you're hearing those rumors, but we can assure you Henry's job as Superman is more than secure. If Justice League gets made and it calls for Man of Steel to be there which duh.. Henry is THE MAN. Of course we love him as Solo as well, and wish that potential franchise great success. But seriously, don't believe those silly rumors.. nothing to them.

    4. I agree with Staff writer. Cavill is superman. Personally, I can't see WB changing actors without a reboot. Cavill's superman has a lot of followers, both female and male. They are not going like a change of casting. Also Mr. Cavill is currently more popular of the three casting for DC. Trinity.

    5. I said I miss Solo...BUT...there is no better role in the universe for Cav-El to play than Superman because it is an Incredibly powerful role in many ways. Just working with Zack, the rest the cast and having the resources that are available in a film like this are a dream for an actor.

      Henry will not be replaced for sequels...or even want to be because the whole Superman role and experience is exactly right up his alley. He's perfect for it. I would much rather he play Superman than anything else. It is the role he will long be remembered for...and I think he enjoys that. But...I think we're all looking forward to seeing Solo as well. <3 <3 <3

  3. No way UNCLE won't be a huge hit. January release with nothing against it. Then Henry gets 2 more UNCLE films at least and he can move off of Superman after the next film. WB is going to use his remaining options for UNCLE films. You watch and see.
