An Inspired Get Smart Cameo Revealed!

He's on his final hole. He's about 455 yards away. He's gonna hit about a two iron, I think.

Next year’s Get Smart already looks to be one of the more highly anticipated comedies of 2008. With a warmly received trailer and a cast already including Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Alan Arkin, Terence Stamp, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the buzz couldn’t get much better. At least, not without an inspired bit of cameo casting, one which Ain’t It Cool News scooped over the weekend.

Most people are probably familiar with Get Smart‘s television origins — though the original series aired from 1965-69, stars Don Adams and Barbara Feldon returned to their characters repeatedly for the next several decades, and the show’s basic concept has become a pop culture staple. Even if you remember enough about Agents 86 and 99 to know that Carell and Hathaway are perfect for the roles of, respectively, a bumbling-but-eager spy and his much more competent (and attractive) partner, those who weren’t around for the show’s initial run might not recall its various supporting characters.

One such character, Agent 13, was as unlucky as his number implied; he was frequently ordered to hide in uncomfortable and inconvenient locations, such as appliances and mailboxes, and wasn’t shy about voicing his displeasure about his assignments. As it turns out, the bitter bureaucrat is making an appearance in the movie, and if AICN‘s source knows his stuff, Agent 13 will be played by none other than the king of deadpan grousing himself, Bill Murray.

Get Smart doesn’t open until June of next year, so official word on this might take awhile, but at the film’s Comic-Con panel, director Peter Segal was quoted as saying Agent 13 “will be a cool cameo,” and this would certainly fit the description.
