James Purefoy on BBC1 Breakfast today.

INJUSTICE actor James Purefoy is still set to star in the return of classic TV show The Saint.

Or so it would appear.

I spoke to him about the role of British international playboy Simon Templar when we met in London last month.

James told me that filming of an American TV pilot – The Saint In New Orleans – was due to start in July.

Of which more further down this blog.

But he was not asked about the project when he appeared on BBC1’s Breakfast sofa this morning.

Or during his ITV1 interview with Lorraine yesterday.
