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.
A little less than 24 hours ago, Nathan Fillion posted video of himself taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and he nominated Tom to do the same. Tom accepted the challenge, of course, and uploaded a glorious video of himself getting soaked with ice cold water to his official WhoSay account. He then nominated Benedict Cumberbatch and Luke Evans for the challenge, too. Watch it below:

According to The Seattle Times, Tom has signed to play country music legend Hank Williams in the biopic “I Saw the Light”.
We all know that Tom Hiddleston can do no wrong: he’s mastered the action-movie bad-guy thing (“The Avengers,” “Thor”), the period-drama thing (“The Deep Blue Sea”), the vampire thing (“Only Lovers Left Alive”), the literary-movie character thing (“Midnight in Paris”), and numerous other roles; plus, he’s pretty cute with little kids. But he’s found a new challenge: He’s signed to play country music legend Hank Williams in the biopic “I Saw the Light” (based on the Williams biography by Colin Escott), and word is that he will do his own singing, warbling Williams hits like “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” and “Hey Good Lookin.’” Williams, born in 1933, found stardom early but his career was brief; troubled by health issues and substance abuse, he died in 1953, aged just 29. The film, to be directed by Marc Abraham (“Flash of Genius”), will begin shooting in Louisiana this fall.
Independent UK distributors Soda Pictures have confirmed that they are planning to release a number of films from maverick American director Jim Jarmusch. On September 15th, they will release on Blu-ray his latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive (2013), starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Wasikowska. In addition to the standard Blu-ray release, there will be a SteelBook Blu-ray release of the film.
Synopsis: Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included on these upcoming releases have not yet been revealed.
The Avengers co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston will show off their modeling skills when they walk the runway at a charity fashion show in London next month (June 14, 2014).
Jackson is set to host The One For The Boys Fashion Ball at the city’s Natural History Museum to raise money for a male cancer charity, and he will also model designer clothing along with Hiddleston, Simon Pegg, funnyman David Walliams, and Welsh actor Luke Evans.
Jackson, who is a spokesman for the One For The Boys charity, says, “The One For The Boys Fashion Ball is a ‘Blue Steel’ inspired fashion moment. Myself, campaign ambassadors, supporters and nominated individuals will take to the catwalk, modeling fashions donated by top designers to raise awareness of male cancers within the fashion world”.
The gala, which also features a fundraising silent auction, takes place on 15 June (14).
