Just last week we talked about the upcoming Kingsman sequel and the poster they had released that day, which heavily indicates a certain character, believed to be deceased after the events of the first movie, is in fact returning.
It would seem that all the surviving characters from the first movie are signed back on for this one, and as we talked about last week, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry have joined the cast as well. Moore as the new villain “Poppy”, and Halle as the head of the Kingman’s American counterpart – the Statesman. At that time, we knew that Berry’s character (Ginger) would be joined by one of her agents, a cowboy-type named Jack. Well, now we know who is playing Jack;
Pedro Pascal, who stole a lot of screen time during the fourth season of Game of Thrones as Oberyn Martell will now play Statesman Jack Daniels, a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy.” Likely a rival for Eggsy, who will end up a reluctant partner, or perhaps traitor – whichever way it breaks, Pascal just improved the quality of the cast exponentially.

Pascal isn’t the only one joining the cast though. Just last night, Hollywood heart-throb Channing Tatum tweeted this:
We don’t know who Tatum is playing yet, perhaps even himself, like he did in This is the End – ok, maybe not just like that, but you know what I mean. The source material here often saw celebrity cameos, so it could make sense as Eggsy comes to America.
Another bit of casting news, and perhaps another opportunity for a celebrity to play themselves, Sir Elton John is rumored to be in talks to join the film as well. Last film he appeared in was 1997’s Spice World, so this would seem to be a step up from there. Maybe Eggsy can save his life…
