Week One on Set of #TheSaint
Ian Ogilvy Joins Adam Rayner on The SaintOne 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.
Two Saints: Adam Rayner meets Ian Ogilvy on Day 2
And The Cast GrowsAs 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!
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!
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.
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.
