I’m excited for this one. Le Carre, Laurie and Hiddleston …. I don’t see how it can go wrong.
AMC could divide the one (final) season into two halves in two different years.
HA! Don’t think they haven’t already thought of that!
Hollywood Reporter posted an article that Tom will be playing the role of the hero and Hugh the villain. Looking forward to it. I hope it is as good as the book!
a very talented and promising duo, now this is the dream team of acting!!!
I can see AMC’s 49% stake in BBC America is finally bearing fruit. I assume after it’s original airing on AMC, it will have a second window on BBCA.
Ha! I was totally thinking the same thing! This, to me, is something that should be aired on BBCAmerica’s Wednesday Dramaville block. But now, AMC is going to get a crack at top notch BBC dramas first, it seems. Sigh.
Dr. House and Loki teaming up on an AMC series? That’s something.
Woow 2 amazing talented & handsome Men. 👏
I love them both, so definitely excited about this.
Ah!…I’m in heaven already for the return of Hlaurie on TV….Great Job AMC!..
I cannot wait to see him kicking Hiddleston’s butt (literally) & playing (I’m pretty sure an amazing/sarcastic & crazy) black market arms dealer.
Hiddleston as the night manager, and Laurie as the arms dealer. That’s my bet.
