His co-stars have been filming since late last month and Hugh Grant finally joined them on the set of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. on Wednesday.

The 53-year-old actor was dapper in a dark three-piece suit, white shirt and sunglasses as he filmed scenes in Rome for the big screen remake of the 1964 television series.

Hugh’s character Alexander Waverly, the British head of the multi-national intelligence organisation U.N.C.L.E., was meeting with American agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Russian agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer).

Set at the height of the Cold War, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (which stands for United Network Command for Law Enforcement), was originally a TV series created by Sam Rolfe, Robert Vaughn and David McCallum.

It aired on NBC for four years from 1964 and has been adapted by director Guy Ritchie for the big screen.
Cavill plays Agent Solo, the part played by Robert Vaughn in the original US TV series, who teams up with Hammer’s operative Kuryakin (previously portrayed by David McCallum) to join forces against a mysterious criminal organisation.
