Trio Of Actors Are “Our Kind Of Traitor(s)”



, , and have signed on to join Ewan McGregor in . Based on John Le Carre’s 2010 novel, the involves a British couple that is thrust into the world of espionage after befriending a Russian with an intent to defect. McGregor and Harris are set to play the couple with Skarsgard as the defector and Lewis will play a member of the British Intelligence Service. Hossein Amini penned the screenplay and Susanna White is attached to direct.

To me, there are very few who would be a better choice to play a defecting Russian spy than Skarsgard (except for Sean Connery, of course) and I can already see him in the role, even though one of my absolute favorite modern (Mads Mikkelsen) was originally in talks for the role, I cannot say I am disappointed. Harris and McGregor should make a great couple and will fill out their roles nicely as they are both incredibly talented. Lewis is the wild card for me, but that could mostly be because I cannot picture him speaking with a English accent, even though I know that is what he actually sounds like in real life. Only time will tell if he will be able to out grow Brody.
