Behind the Scenes with Gary Oldman and John LeCarre


Watch this video piece which features John LeCarre, Gary Oldman and other cast members talking about the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy movie based on LeCarre's novel.

It's such an amazing film and is definitely getting Oscar buzz for Best Picture as well as Best Actor for Gary Oldman. The entire cast is terrific, it's nice to know that John LeCarre has written so approvingly about this particular screen adaptation, also to see LeCarre was on set! As a matter of fact I read that LeCarre is an extra in the Christmas party scene. Unfortunately I didn't know that when I saw the movie and missed him!

Have you seen it? What do you think about the casting of Gary Oldman as George Smiley?

I think he's too skinny but he's so talented he completely pulls it off.


  1. Great video! Interesting to see how the filmmakers use the source material in subtle and unexpected ways. Seems to allow the movie to be its own work of art while not departing from the world of the book.

  2. Exactly! I suppose that's why John LeCarre is such a fan of the film.
