Charlotte Duck talks to Henry Cavill & Armie about playing spies, doing accents and a possible Man From UNCLE sequel.
Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer have been talking about their new movie, the Guy Ritchie-directed spy thriller, The Man From UNCLE.
Henry, who plays America CIA agent Napoleon Solo, talked about how he struggled at first with an American accent.
“I definitely struggled at the beginning because we hadn’t found the accent by the time we started shooting. When we were shooting Guy would come in and say ‘No, that sounds wrong,’ or ‘this sounds wrong’ or ‘try and say the word this way’ and because there’s no uniform structure to it, it became very difficult to perform and you become very conscious of speaking as opposed to acting and feeling. Eventually we found it about a quarter of the way through the movie because we found a way of speaking that was consistent.
The actor also joked about being approached the play Bond following Daniel Craig’s predicted exit: “It’s top secret so I can’t say anything.”
Armie also seemed keen: “Totally, I’m in. I’m not supposed to talk about it yet but I’ve had a conversation with someone.”
The movie, which GLAMOUR very much enjoyed, sets up for a sequel at the finale so we asked the boys if this was happening.
“We haven’t heard anything. We’d love to do it,” said Henry.
Armie explains how he accidentally ended up showing naked pictures of himself to the woman cutting his hair and recalls how much fun it was to hang out with director Guy Ritchie while they were working on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Also, Armie recalls getting admonished for his outfit when he showed up to Guy Ritchie‘s home in the English countryside.

Walt Disney Pictures has debuted this latest TV spot for the upcoming action-adventure film, ‘The Lone Ranger.’
ETONLINE.COM – Every actor dreams of his first major role, and for Armie Hammer it was dually satisfying, as he played not one but two parts in his breakout film, The Social Network.
As the popularity of Facebook skyrocketed around the globe, a book was published on the conception and growth of the social networking site in 2009 and a film based on it was released a year later.
Hammer, who had been floating around on various television projects for the bulk of his acting career, landed roles as twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, partial creators of Facebook.
The then-23-year-old actor was tasked with not only bringing his best acting for his breakout film, but duplicating it for a separate character.
“It was weird and it was tough initially, especially the first couple days trying to figure out how we’re going to do this, creating a system and all that,” Hammer details to then-correspondent for ET and current omg!Insider co-host Kevin Frazier.
“But then, like anything else on a great set with a great director, we found our rhythm and…were able to truck through it, and it became just an amazing process.”
Hammer then goes on to describe the logistics of playing two different characters and reveals that he would sometimes copy the acting of the stand-in for the twin he wasn’t playing.
All four Winklevosses—Hammer and the real twins—were introduced after production ceased, which proved a bizarre experience not only for him but for the twins as well.
“[It was] surreal because I felt like the smaller triplet. It was so strange,” he says. “…It was after production when we’d met ’em, so I’d spent the last eight months trying to think like these guys.”
“…So to finally see them I was like, ‘Dude, Cam, remember when you were 15 and you fell in the water?’ and Ty, ‘Your mom was like “Oh, I’m so mad at you guys!”‘ and they’re like ‘We just met you. You are freaking us out, dude. Pump the brakes!”
Despite his encyclopedic knowledge of their lives, the Los Angeles native, who took the risk of forgoing an education in order to pursue his acting career, says he doesn’t relate too much to his characters in the film.
Watch the full flashback to hear Hammer talk about the social network itself, Facebook.
