Operation Mincemeat Cast & Real Life Character Guide #Operation #Mincemeat #Cast #Real #Life #Character #Guide Welcome to TmZ Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Operation Mincemeat tells the story of the British deception mission of the same name during World War II. Led by Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth), the British Navy attempted to feed Nazi Germany false information by planting a corpse, which had several fictional documents outlining plans to invade Greece, into enemy seas. By tricking the Germans into thinking that they would be moving on different locations, the creative ploy allowed Britain and their allied forces to drive Germany back from Sicily and gain territory in Europe.
This is the second time that Operation Mincemeat has been adapted into a film. In 1956 The Man Who Never Was told the same story, with the real-life Ewen Montagu himself making a cameo appearance. Operation Mincemeat continues a trend in adapting true war stories, particularly from World War II, with Netflix’s Munich: The Edge Of War releasing earlier in 2022. Madden’s fresh take on the story of Operation Mincemeat is based on Ben Macintyre’s 2010 non-fiction book of the same name. Here’s a guide to the cast and characters of Operation Mincemeat, what the actors have done before, and who the real people behind the characters were.
Colin Firth as Ewen Montagu
Colin Firth stars in Operation Mincemeat as Ewen Montagu, the British Commanding Officer who led the mission. While the movie’s representation of Montagu was largely accurate, his knowledge of British Intelligence ahead of “The Twenty Committee” was underplayed. Montagu had good expertise of British intelligence by that point, making him a suitable candidate to lead Operation Mincemeat. Following the events of the movie, Montagu took up senior positions across the British Navy, in legal courts, and in public health. Colin Firth’s extensive acting credits include The King’s Speech and Kingsman: The Secret Service, and he previously appeared in the true story adaptation 1917.
