The upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot is going to have not one, but two versions of Bosley. The character plays an important role in both the TV and movie versions of the franchise, as he’s the man (or woman) who connects the agents to the head of the Townsend Agency that they work for. In this case, the man is going to be played by none other than Patrick Stewart.
According to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter, Patrick Stewart is in final negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming reboot, which is being directed by Elizabeth Banks. Interestingly enough, Banks, aside from directing, is also going to be playing a version of Bosley in the new Charlie’s Angels.
The indication is that Banks will be playing the version that handles the new trio of cast members, while Stewart will be playing a different version of the character, possibly handling one of the other sets of Angels located somewhere else in the world. Either way, we’re going to have two very different Bosleys this time around.
This is just another project for Patrick Stewart who keeps finding ways to stay very busy. He retired as Charles Xavier in Logan last year, but the actor recently signed on to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard in a new Star Trek series for CBS All Access. He’s also set to star in the King Arthur movie The Boy Who Would Be King, in addition to his continued voice work on shows like American Dad. Stewart is clearly having absolutely no trouble getting work, nor does it appear to be an issue for him to keep up, despite being 78-years-old. Age be damned.
It’ll be interesting to see what a more Bond-like take on Charlie’s Angels will look like, especially under Banks’ direction. The movie. starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska as the Angels, is definitely going to be a notable addition to the Charlie’s Angels franchise.
Here’s to hoping that when it hits theaters on September 27, 2019, it’ll also be a great one.
