Robert Vaughn said he still hasn’t been approached to do a cameo in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie as the production nears completion of principal photography.

The Daily Mail newspaper in the U.K. has A FEATURE STORY about the actor’s long career. There’s this snippet:

He says he’d have loved a cameo in Guy Ritchie’s film remake of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. but hasn’t been approached. ‘I’d be like the head of the organisation and sit in a big room with a bunch of television sets and send men to their deaths.’ Any thoughts on British actor Henry Cavill, who plays Solo in Ritchie’s remake? ‘I’m sure he’ll be fine,’ he says. ‘I’ve seen him wearing the Superman suit. He’s an attractive actor.’

Back in October, Vaughn, the original Napoleon Solo, told THE BIRMINGHAM MAIL he had gotten “feelers” about doing a cameo. David McCallum, who played Illya Kuryakin in the 1964-68 series, has said he’s not doing a cameo.

The movie, with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, completes production early next month after filming in various places in the U.K. as well as locations in Italy.
