You may think it's been a long, long time since our last segment, but here's more of SYFY WIRE's revealing and entertaining interview series spotlighting the cast of Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which infiltrates theaters this Friday.

In this segment, Taron Egerton (Eggsy), Colin Firth (Harry Hart), Jeff Bridges (Champ), and Julianne Moore (Poppy) expound on the many merits of being in the superspy sequel, and the incredible production presence of rock legend Sir Elton John.

Egerton also discusses his lead role casting in the upcoming Elton musical fantasy bio-pic, Rocket Man, as named for John's classic '70s song, "Rocket Man," on the 1972 album, Honky Château. Of course, he also gets into the surreal quality of being part of Kingsman with the musical icon while also playing John's younger self in his next film.

Listen in and tell us if you can see Egerton as a young Elton, and if you're psyched for Kingsman: The Golden Circle's secret agent spectacle when it arrives in theaters on Sept. 22.
