Robert Vaughn, the original Man From U.N.C.L.E., is quoted by a U.K. newspaper that he’s gotten “feelers” about doing a cameo in the U.N.C.L.E. movie now in production.

The Birmingham Mail HAS AN OCT. 4 STORY about a British stage production of Twelve Angry Men in which the 80-year-old actor is appearing as one of the jurors. Here’s an excerpt:

Robert is thrilled that The Man From UNCLE movie is being remade starring Superman’s Henry Cavill in his role of agent Napoleon Solo.

“Some feelers have come my way about a cameo role, which I would absolutely do, no
question,” says Robert.

“It was a turning point in my life and I shall be forever grateful for the show.”

The U.N.C.L.E. movie is currently filming in Italy, but is scheduled to return to the U.K., its home base, later this month.

Shout out to Laneyboggs and, who Tweeted about this.

  1. Have mixed feeling about old stars doing crossover cameos. Not sure what purpose it serves. Nostalgia at the expense of a well told story?

  2. Depends on how the cameo is executed. Michael G. Wilson’s cameos in the Bond series range from short, barely noticeable shots to, at times, hammy appearances than draw attention to themselves.
