Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie are to appear together in new TV series The Night Manager. Hiddleston, 33, and Laurie, 55, will lead the cast for the new TV adaptation of the novel by John Le Carre, according to The Hollywood reporter.
The new BBC show follows the story of Jonathan Pine, a British soldier who later becomes an auditor for a luxurious hotel. Pine soon comes into contact with Sophie, a French-Arab woman linked to Richard Onslow Roper, who made his considerable fortune from weapons deals. But when Sophie is killed, Pine goes undercover with intelligence operatives to avenge her death.
The new show marks the TV return of both Hiddleston – who is best known for appearing in the Thor movies – and Laurie. Hiddleston’s last regular television role was in BBC Two’s The Hollow Crown in 2012, while Laurie left House in the same year.
