“Homeland” star Rupert Friend has gone bald to play super assassin “Agent 47” and we’ve got the first photo, courtesy of IGN. Friend replaced Paul Walker in the titular role after the “Fast and Furious” star’s death late last year.
Filming doesn’t officially begin until next week, but this official photo sees Friend take on Agent 47’s signature bald head and red tie. The character was first portrayed by Timothy Olyphant in 2007’s “Hitman” and is an orphan raised by an organization of hired assassins. There are no plot details on the sequel yet, though we know Zachary Quinto is also part of the cast while newcomer Hannah Ware has the female lead
No release date yet, but Fox has the rights so we’ll probably see “Agent 47” late this year or early next. For now, the first official photo of Friend in character is below.
