I saw that Tom Hollander won the BAFTA TV award for Best Supporting Actor for The Night Manager.

Tom Hollander deserved that award!

Tom Hiddleston is romancing Taylor Swift?!

 

It's been reported on E! Entertainment News and even made the cover of US Weekly.

 

Lots and lots of pictures.

 

They are so in love!

 

Such PR, the transparency is really ridiculous.

 

Even if this romance wasn't a PR stunt it wouldn't have lasted more then a few months anyway.   Taylor just can't keep a man!  :lol:

Last night, on "The Night Manager", there was such an unexpected plot development -

 

SPOILER ALERT! -

 

Jonathan Pine, who is now calling himself Andrew Birch, killed the gay character, "Corky", because Corky had discovered that Andrew had "escaped" from the compound.

 

I have read that, in the book, "Corky" is NOT KILLED.

 

Anyway, "Corky" was such an interesting character.

 

I will definitely miss the man.

 

I saw the actor once on Broadway in "The Judas Kiss".

 

And I was mesmerized by his performance.

 

There were changes from page to film, that were sanctioned by John le Carre. Another one is that Angela Burr, the agent who "hires" Pine, is a man in the book.  They made the character female for the series; and Olivia Colman, who plays Angela, happened to be pregnant.

 

Hollander's a great actor. He was Macheath on stage, in the best Threepenny Opera I've ever seen. Check out the movie Bedrooms and Hallways. He plays Hugo Weaving's boyfriend and has one of the most hilarious scenes ever.

I also didn't understand why Pine/Andrew would not leave the operation when he was ordered to by the woman in charge of the operation.

I think at the start, he wasn't as committed to the operation as she (Angela) was; but by the time Angela had begun to fear for his safety, Pine had already become committed and wanted to continue, whatever the risks.

 

Corky's meltdown was a bit OTT! I think it was partly desire, partly suspicion, and partly the fact that he (Corky) was beginning to feel marginalized.

Terrific episode last night, although why Pine, who now has a new name, Andrew, would sleep with Roper's girlfriend is beyond me.

 

She's very tall and very thin, has a really bad haircut and prances around like she's the current Miss World.

 

I also didn't understand why Pine/Andrew would not leave the operation when he was ordered to by the woman in charge of the operation.

 

I really like the developing relationship with Pine/Andrew and Roper.

 

Roper cares for him a great deal.

 

I didn't care for Corky's big meltdown in the restaurant in which he starts to grab Pine/Andrew's ****.

 

It came out of nowhere, I'd say.

 

Although Roper explained later that Corky wants Pine/Andrew.

 

Still, it did manage to be gripping TV.

Well, that list is enough, isn't it?

 

I just remembered that an actor that I do know - Russell Tovey - had a small bit in the first episode.

 

I remember him from the first season of "Looking".

 

He's rather adorable. I saw him on stage in The History Boys, London, 2004.

Btw, Ray, although I'm familiar with many, many British actors, I didn't know many of the actors in The Night Manager either, apart from Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hollander, and Douglas Hodge.

Last night's episode was an excellent one.

 

Pine and Roper are developing an interesting relationship.

 

But, needless to day, Pine is putting himself in a very dangerous situation.

 

I do like Pine's budding relationship with Roper's little boy.

 

The kid is obviously neglected by his father.

 

And the mistress doesn't look like she'd be good company for the kid.

 

Does anybody know this young actor's name?

 

Anyway, three episodes in, and I am already a big fan.

 

The entire ensemble of actors/actresses is first-rate.

 

Although I don't really know any of them except for Hugh Laurie.

 

Wait till you get to the end -- thrilling!

I think my little moving photo from High-Rise has been censored!  It's a mainstream movie, starring Tom Hiddleston and Jeremy Irons. Here's a more discreet image:

Not that I think they should remake Maurice, but they would have been a good couple!

Yes, I would like to see them together - romantically.

 

Anyway, Tommy, a seriously beautiful man -

There is one commercial that I like though - the Jaguar commercial that features Tom Hiddleston and Nicholas Hoult - man, those two should make a movie together!

I saw it on the BBC, no commercials, but the BBC seems to be making more deals with commercial U.S. cable channels, and AMC commercials are endless!  I'm watching it again though; DVR'd it last night and will watch episode 2 tonight.
