has had kind of a weird career so far. It was all up and down, and up and down, but now finally his career seems to be on a steady incline. With roles starring alongside the likes of and , might we say he is... hammering... his way onto the A-list of Hollywood? Might we?

Anyway, Hammer can add one more megastar to his list of collaborators, with Deadline reporting that the actor is all set to join the cast of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., starring none other than . Let's be honest; no matter how nutty Tom might get, he still fills the seats and makes massive bank for the studios. Cruise will, of course, be playing Napoleon Solo with Hammer set to be his sidekick, Illya Kuryakin. With set to direct, the young Hammer finds himself in some seriously solid company.

While I'm not entirely sure Hammer has the looks to pull off a leading man (He's very handsome, but kind of bland, perhaps), no doubt that we'll only see him in larger and larger roles from here on out. At some point, he's almost certain to strap himself into a suit of spandex or a cape to play a superhero of some sort, whether for Marvel or DC. Count on it.
