When Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie take TV Russell Tovey will be there.
The cute alumnus of HBO’s Looking has been cast in The Night Manager, a BBC-produced property that AMC will premiere stateside next year.
The show – an adaptation of the John le Carré novel – will center on a former British soldier-cum-night auditor at a luxury hotel (the Hiddle-hunk), and the information he receives from a French-Arab woman about a dangerous black-market arms dealer (Laurie) in order to turn it over to British intelligence. Instead, though, the night manager becomes part of the operation tasked with taking down the ne’er-do-well.
And there ya go: drama.
