The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie now being filmed in the U.K. has a “Young Napoleon Solo” character to be played by an actor who looks similar to star Henry Cavill who’s playing Solo in the film.
Jonathan Nadav, 23, has been cast as the young Solo, according to CASTINGCALLPRO.COM, a Web site that tracks casting.
That raises a couple of the possibility of either flashback scenes or some kind of prologue with the young Solo.
The original 1964-68 show didn’t reveal a lot about Solo’s background. One piece of information was he served during the Korean War under the command of a Colonel Morgan, who he encountered again in the first-season episode The Secret Sceptre Affair.
Whether director Guy Ritchie is going to explore that angle remains to be seen.
