This one is getting very dark - and it is loaded with commercials - but Tom Hiddleston could probably carry me through anything.

 

That face, those lips, that bod!

 

I am crazy for the man.

 

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.

Tom Hiddleston is also the star of High-Rise, a movie which opens next month. Crazy movie and Tom is terrific.

 

The Night Manager gets even better.  You've had a glimpse of the very camp gay character, played by Tom Hollander. More of him in the upcoming episodes.  Olivia Colman as Angela Burr is brilliant.

I am looking forward to the remaining episodes.

I would see this for Loki ( Tom Hiddleston)

You might also like the new film High-Rise, in which Hiddleston stars. It opens in the U.S. next month.

Hollander has been a welcome presence in films for the past couple of decades. Glad to hear he has a good role to sink his teeth into.

 

He was a hilariously campy character in Bedrooms and Hallways (as the object of Hugo Weaving's lust). On stage, he was Macheath in The Threepenny Opera (1994) -- an updated version and the best production of that show I've ever seen. Here's Hollander as Macheath singing "The Ballad of the Easy Life:"

Having just returned from London, I saw the BBC's The Night Manager, based on a book by John le Carre. It's quite a good six-part series, with an exceptional cast and great production values. It comes to AMC beginning April 19. I mention it in this thread because there is one gay character, played by the great Tom Hollander. The character, Major Lance Corcoran, is a villain, though he has his reflective side. Most of his moments, however, consist of being one of the bitchiest, campiest characters I've seen on TV recently.

 

("Lecherous, scheming and an inveterate boozer, there was something oddly human about Corky...")

 

Here's a posed photo of the cast (Hollander at far right); a production photo of the character in question; and a link (with spoilers!) to information about this fascinating gay character.
