The American actor joins returning stars including Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and C elia Imrie with Extras star Tamsin Greig also joining the cast.

Blueprint Pictures' Graham Broadbent said: " What are the odds of being able to re-assemble this extraordinary group of actors and film makers, let alone to add to their number?

"We found a worldwide audience we never dreamed of for the first, and we feel very lucky to have the chance now to bring them this companion film."

Filming for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 has already started in India.

The original film, released in 2012, was a surprise hit earning more than £82 million at the box office worldwide having been made for around £6 million.
