Someone pop the champagne and dust off those glittery glasses: Sir Elton Hercules John is back on the big screen.
Last month, rumors surfaced that the legendary singer-songwriter would appear in the sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s 2015 action-spy hit, Kingsman: The The Secret Service. Now, the crocodile rocker has confirmed the news himself:
No word on who he’ll play — friend or foe — but he’ll join a cast that includes returning heroes Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, and Colin Firth alongside fresh blood like Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, and Pedro Pascal.
This marks the first time Sir Elton has appeared on screen since 1997’s Spice World, when he appeared as himself. However, he did narrate 2000’s much-forgotten The Road to El Dorado. This is a solid get for Mr. Vaughn.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters June 16th, 2017.
