Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth gets back to work after his phenomenal success with The King's Speech. Firth, 50, was seen on set this weekend in central London, filming the Joel and Ethan Coen-scripted remake of the 1966 crime caper, Gambit.

Chatting on a mobile phone by Westminster Cathedral, Firth went almost unnoticed as shoppers and tourists flocked past, many taking pictures of the London landmark instead. In the film, Firth plays a London art curator who tries to con a wealthy collector into buying a fake Monet. The film also stars Cameron Diaz as a Texan rodeo worker who is roped into the plot. The original film – starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine – was nominated for three Oscars.
