SO George Clooney has dropped out of the Man from Uncle (remake one million and counting) - I really thought he would be see himself as perfect for the role, as they will be setting the film in the 60’s to mimic the feel of the early Bond films.
People forget he improved Solaris from the original but perhaps the camp taste was not his vibe in this spy caper.
Well to be honest I have never really enjoyed Clooney in straight action fare, except perhaps for the bizarrely lovely From Dusk Till Dawn.
Who could fill his shoes one asks. It is very hard to tell, Robert Vaughan was of course perfect for the spy, and more importantly Ducky from NCIS as Ilya Kuryakin - that’s takes some beating.
So comments are welcome on who could meet the need for 60’s spies, perhaps Jon Hamm, or going younger why not Ewan MacGregor and he could at least play a Bond type.
Here is the twee but well orchestrated theme -they should keep this.
