True Grit star, Jeff Bridges, has been added to the growing cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle!

Much like the previous new additions, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth and Elton John, the announcement was made on Jeff Bridges' Twitter by a new poster with a little tidbit about his character.

"The only Golden Circle I want vexing me is the one my glass leaves behind on the table"

No name or further details have been released about his character but the movie is said to introduce the “Statesman,” the American counterpart of the Kingsman organisation.

Joining the cast of Kingsman 2 will mark Bridges' third foray into the comic book movie world; he previously had roles in Iron Man as Obadiah Stane and Roy in R.I.P.D.
