Colin Firth may be the reigning Oscar winning leading man, but it's Gary Oldman that takes the dramatic star turn in Firth's first film since nabbing gold.

Oldman, Firth and Tom Hardy star in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," a film based on the 1974 John le Carré novel. Oldman plays George Smiley, a retired MI6 intelligence expert forced back into action to smoke out a Soviet mole from the Secret Intelligence Service.

The film, directed by Tomas Alfredson, comes after a 1979 TV miniseries starring Alec Guinness.

Oldman has never won an Oscar -- he's never even been nominated -- but given the release date of November 18th, this may be his big gold play.

As for Firth, he's currently filming Coen Brothers-scripted "Gambit" with Alan Rickman, Stanley Tucci and Cameron Diaz.
