Taron Egerton Is Officially Hot Shit
It's unsurprising but still delightful to hear that the charm monster that is Taron Egerton is being clamored after these days, with a Robin Hood reboot and, naturally, the Kingsman sequel both laying claim on the actor.
Last week his professional calendar seemed almost too full, with the shooting schedules of Robin Hood: Origins and Kingsman 2 in conflict, and with an eager Matthew Vaughn declaring that Kingsman 2 will go ahead whether Robin Hood likes it or not. Hard to blame him - Kingsman was a blast, but a Secret Service without Colin Firth's Galahad or Egerton's Eggsy is not a Secret Service I want protecting me. (Or the queen or whatever.)
Fortunately, everyone played nice and now the Robin Hood reboot has pushed its shoot to the end of summer 2016, after Kingsman 2 wraps. Everyone wins! Especially Robin Hood: Origins, since a reboot that I suspect would have garnered zero interest now has my attention, because goddammit, Taron Egerton will make the CUTEST little prince of thieves. What a scamp he'll be!
