Mark Strong Added To The Cast Of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

The upcoming adaptation of John Le Carre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy has done an impressive job of rounding up all of the top British talent available. Directed by Tomas Alfredson, the cast already includes the likes of Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Ralph Fiennes and Tom Hardy. But because you can't have too many awesome British people in your cast, they are adding at least one more. The Daily Mail reports that Mark Strong has joined the cast of the film, though his role is unspecified. Set in the heart of the Cold War during the 1970s, the film centers on retired British intelligence officer, played by Oldman, who returns to duty in order to find a Russian spy that has invaded the secret service.

Anyone who has seen his performances in Kick-Ass, Sherlock Holmes or even Rocknrolla knows that Strong is awesome that has been stacked to 6'2". A total badass in everything he does, this project actually managed to become even cooler with his addition (if that's even physically possible). The film is currently in pre-production with plans to start principle photography soon.
