Week One on Set of #TheSaint

The 2013 version of The Saint kicked off principal shooting this week, starting off in Pacific Palisades, California on Monday morning.  This photo is from day one, and is the first one we have of Adam Rayner as Simon Templar, alias The Saint, standing next to Eliza Dushku, who is playing The Saint's partner-in-crime, Patricia Holm.

Ian Ogilvy Joins Adam Rayner on The Saint

One of the really great things about this show is that the Producers are including a great deal of the history of The Saint.  And to that end, on day two of the shoot, Ian Ogilvy, of 1970s TV show, The Return of The Saint, showed up on set for his role in the new show.   Ian reportedly had a great time on set, and there is a possibility that his "wink cameo" (as he calls it) will turn into a semi-regular part.

And The Cast Grows

As filming gets underway this week, other cast members are being announced or otherwise making their connection to The Saint known!  Here's is the lastest list we have so far, and more is obviously on the way!

Oliver Bell as the young Simon Templar 

We'd love to know a lot more about Oliver Bell, and it appears he's only been in The Sparticle Mystery thus far. Perhaps The Saint will take him up up and away.

Oliver is represented by Caz Irwin and LSI Talent Management, who tweeted that their fab client Oliver Bell will be playing the young Simon Templar in The Saint alongside Sir Roger Moore!

Enrique Murciano as Inspector John Henry Fernack 

The role of The Saint's American foil, Inspector John Henry Fernack, is an important one and well documented in the writings of Leslie Charteris. The character was based on an Italian-born detective of the New York Police Department that Charteris met in the 1930s. Enrique Murciano is reportedly brilliant in the role, and has a long career going all the way back to Speed 2, Traffic, Black Hawk Down, and a number of TV show appearances.

The photo of the left was taken on day 1 as filming of his on-going pursuit of Simon Templar continued in this 2013 version of The Saint.

Greg Grunberg as Detective Garces 

Formally of the TV shows, Heroes, Felicity, and Alias, Greg will be playing Inspector Fernack's right hand man in their attempts to catch Adam Rayner and Eliza Dushku.

Most recently Grunberg has been a guest star of Hawaii Five-O, Psych, and Baby Daddy.

We are excited to see all the great talent that is being cast, and look forward to the show!

Yani Gellman as Doyle

Yani hit our radar on Day 3, when one of the co-Producers posted an Instagram of the mysterious "Doyle on The Set".  It turned out to be Yani Gellman, who is reportedly playing a really great role in the pilot.

 Gellman first appeared in Goosebumps back in 1998, and has since been in nine movies and 16 television shows, including 90210, The Mentalist, and Beauty and the Beast.

Follow The Saint @ #TheSaint

 The growing use of the hashtag #TheSaint is a really great way to find out the latest news, as it happens. Many of the actors and cast are using Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Facebook to post their personal updates on an hour-by-hour basis.  

Keep using #TheSaint and re-tweet using that tag if you see something that you think the fans of The Saint would be interested in!

And, you can also follow @TheSaintClub as we try to keep up and retweet all the news and rumors about The Saint.
Watch for the sign of #TheSaint as he will return in 2013!

Well....many questions still.....such as "The Car". I trust it will be a very fine one. Since they brought back The Goldfinger Aston Martin in Skyfall I am going to presume they won't skimp on the automobile. I have a fond memory of my old used P1800. Except the night I blew the engine on I 90. It will be interesting to see the relationship between Templar and Fernack.

@Hudson Hawk good question yes The Car. It will great if the Saint drive the 60's Volvo P1800 but he must have a new Saint mobile. Yes Bond was drive the Classic Aston Martin for the 4th time in Skyfall. We do want to know his new car. Either a Volvo or a Jag. Remember 007 drove a Volvo in Quantum of Solace in Austria.

Now Volvo has 4 cylinder cars only so Don't put The Saint in Volvo again this time. Jaguar or an Aston. It has be British Iconic. I just Jensen has revived by now. Rolls & Bentley have got some suitable cars for the new Saint.
