Re: Guy Ritchie To Direct 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Starring Tom Cruis

I wasn't talking about his qualifications for the part. I was talking about whether he "rocks a suit," as stated above. As I understand it, "rocks" means "wears well" or "looks good in." But it looked to me like he was kind of overstuffing the suit, that he was too muscular to fit into it well. That's got nothing to do with whether he's qualified to play Napoleon Solo or whether the movie will be any good; I was talking about the suit, period.

It was a tongue-in-cheek remark, if the smiley didn't give it away. Why do you have to take everything so seriously?

Nobody likes to be misconstrued.

It was the reference to 'being used to a leaner Solo' I was referring to. But forget it.

They appear rather generic in those pics. The originals were a bit more idiosyncratic, especially Robert Vaughn.

To be fair, those pics were unintended, behind-the-scenes set candids, instead of planned publicity photos.

Armand Hammer as Ilya? I dunno. McCallum brought a serious intensity to the role. There was just something about him that made you not want to mess with him. Hammer is so white bread and boring. And god help them if he doesn't absolutely nail that accent.
