Taron Egerton Praises Channing Tatum's Kingsman 2 Role

Filming for "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" has wrapped, and the performances by the all-star cast -- which includes Colin Firth, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Vinnie Jones, among others -- will "blow everyone away," according to series lead Taron Egerton.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Egerton -- who plays Kingsmen agent Gary Unwin -- had high praise for his "supporting cast," and said that he was particularly impressed by Channing Tatum. Asked about his co-star, Egerton stated that Tatum "was only around for a couple of weeks, but he's such a great guy and he's brilliant in the movie."

Tatum's part in the film is still unknown, but fan speculation is that he is an agent with the Statesmen, the American sister organization of the Kingsmen that will be aiding them as they travel to the U.S. in pursuit of a dangerous adversary named Poppy (Julianne Moore).

Fans praised the first film, "Kingsman: The Secret Service," for its intense action scenes, comedic elements, and unique re-interpretation on the spy-fiction genre. The sequel will see the spy agency pushed to its limits after their headquarters is destroyed, and will also see the return of Colin Firth's character, super-spy Harry Hart, who was presumed dead after the events of the original movie.

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is scheduled for release June 16, 2017.
