Although he first came to prominence as a professional football player, Jones has since distinguished himself as a prolific character actor, thanks in no small part to his past collaborations with director Matthew Vaughn. First cast in Vaughn’s production of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the two men went on to work together again in Snatch and were slated to do so in X-Men before Vaughn left the project. With Kingsman on Jones’ plate, it appears he will be reunited once again with the director:
Taron Egerton returns as Eggsy for Kingsman: The Golden Circle with Mark Strong reprising the role of Merlin from the first film. Halle Berry is appearing as the head of the CIA, Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal will appear as a character conveniently named “Jack Daniels,” with Channing Tatum in an unknown role, and Julianne Moore playing the film’s central villain. Edward Holcroft is also set to appear in the film, though whether he will reprise as his character from the first is unclear. Sir Elton John will also make an appearance in his first acting role since The Pinball Wizard in 1975’s Tommy. The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, is also appearing in an unknown role.
