Rowan Atkinson. I trusted his judgment and bought the movie without ever watching it, and I loved it! Atkinson is so good as the goofy spy, not to mention the GORGEOUS Natalie Imbruglia acting rather than singing in the movie. The villain was so funny, and perfectly portrayed by John Malkovich.
Gillian Anderson has been cast in the sequel. I have to admit I've never seen a single episode of "X-Files", or either of the two movies. I just have no desire for that type of material. And other than anything "X-Files" related, I don't know any of Anderson's work. We'll see what happens as the movie approaches. The article in Deadline had no other details.
