Tom Hiddleston Talks His Summer in the Spotlight

24 July 2016 6:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been a wild summer for Tom Hiddleston. In April, the English actor captured our attention with his role as former British soldier-turned undercover government spy in AMC's critically-acclaimed six-part series The Night Manager. The show went on to earn 12 Emmy nominations, which Hiddleston calls a genuine thrill. "I’m so proud of The Night Manager and the work everybody did in it and to see it nominated for 12 [Emmys]," Hiddleston told People at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday.

Octogenarian novelist John le Carré is enjoying quite a surge in popularity these days: Paramount Television and The Ink Factory have just put le Carré’s novel “The Spy Who Came in From the Cold” into development for TV. Character 7 will also assist with the financing and production.

Le Carré’s seminal 1963 novel was already adapted for the screen, an Oscar-nominated 1965 film Paul Dehn wrote for Paramount, and he’ll serve as an executive producer on the TV project. The Ink Factory’s Stephen and Simon Cornwell will executive produce as well, along with Character 7’s Stephen Garrett.

Simon Beaufoy, who penned Oscar-winner “Slumdog Millionaire,” will write. “Adapting one of the best thrillers ever written is a rare privilege,” he said.

The story centers on British intelligence operative Alec Leamas, the titular spy who adopts the guise of a turncoat to wreak vengeance on the East German Intelligence Service deputy director responsible for the death of one »

‘London Road’ Trailer: Tom Hardy Is a Singing Cab Driver In Real-Life Serial Murder Musical

19 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last month BBC Worldwide North America acquired the distribution rights to “London Road” and has now released its first Us trailer. The film is directed by Rufus Norris and written by Alecky Blythe, with music by Adam Cork, and is the movie adaptation of the British National Theatre musical of the same name.

London Road” stars Olivia Colman and features Tom Hardy and the entire cast of the stage version. The story is based on real-life incidents from 2006, when the town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women who were murdered by Steve Wright. When Wright was arrested and charged for the homicides, the residents of London Road were shocked and grappled with what it meant to be at the epicenter of this tragedy.

U.S. Trailer: Colman, Hardy In "London Road"

19 July 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Even though it's only a small role, one of the big draws of the upcoming British musical "London Road" is that we get to see Tom Hardy participate.

Based on the stage show with the entire original London cast landing roles in the movie, the true story tale ties into the real life murder of five sex workers in Ipswich in 2006. When a local resident was charged, and then convicted, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the heart of this tragedy.

The film uses the actual words of the residents of London Road, and sets it to an innovative musical score. "Broadchurch" alum Olivia Colman leads the cast while Rufus Norris helms the project which opens September 9th.

Tom Hardy is a Singing Cab Driver in U.S. Trailer For Musical Drama ‘London Road’

19 July 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a festival and international run last year, the U.S. trailer has landed for London Road a dark, yet “life affirming” musical about a small town who try to recover after a tragedy. Adapted from the acclaimed London’s National Theater production, director Rufus Norris has assembled the entire cast of the stage version and congealed them with the likes of Tom Hardy — yes, Tom Hardy is in a musical — and Olivia Colman to create something that seems rather unique. The trailer, featuring an assortment of festival banners and rave reviews, demonstrates the blend of dark grief, levity deriving from the simplicity of humanity, and life-affirming hope.

We said in our review, “Ideally, big-screen takes on massively successful musicals will do two things. First, and most obviously, is capturing the pleasures of an original work, making clear why people flocked towards this material in the first place. Second, and more complexly, »

Emmys Upstage Oscars In Diversity and Female-Led Programs In 2016

14 July 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After Oscars So White, when every single one of the 20 acting nominations were given to white thespians, Thursday’s Emmy nominations revealed far more diversity in the television industry. While the Motion Picture Academy responds well to certain high-end dramas such as Best Picture winner “12 Years a Slave,” those films just don’t come along that often. (So far Oscars 2017 look to tell a different story.)

Unlike the movie industry, in television more shows are aimed at more diverse audiences from the start, which gives 19,000 Emmy voters a wealth of options. The television industry casts a wide net, aiming shows at every audience segment, especially women, who are consistently underserved by the Hollywood studios, despite their strong box office stats.

Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

Emmy Nominations Recognize Present Excellence and Rectify Past Mistakes

14 July 2016 11:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A strange feeling overtook me as Emmy nominations were announced today: Pure, unadulterated joy. It’s not as if I’ve never experienced that emotion before, but only very rarely on Emmy day.

The Emmys not only recognized worthy work in the present — today’s nominations rectified some past mistakes.

Tracee Ellis Ross, Constance Zimmer, Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson and Sterling K. Brown are not newcomers to the industry, of course, but it’s very gratifying to see that they were recognized for their stellar work on “Black-ish,” “UnReal” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” “Game of Thrones” is a genuine phenomenon at this point, but it’s gratifying to see Kit Harington and especially the ferociously talented Maisie Williams join the show’s other nominees. And it’s never sad to see truly gifted performers on lower-profile shows do well, which was the case with Tatiana Maslany (who got another nod »

Tom Hiddleston Came Home from ‘Ghostbusters’ To ‘Night Manager’ Emmy Noms

14 July 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The acclaimed AMC miniseries “The Night Manager,” based on the novel by John LeCarre, was a big winner this morning, landing 12 Emmy nominations. That includes a first nod for star Tom Hiddleston, who is currently reprising the role of Loki in “Thor: Ragnarok,” filming in Australia. Variety spoke to Hiddleston this morning about the news and his very fun last 24 hours.

Congratulations on the Emmy nomination; how did you get the news?

It’s 3:30 a.m. in Australia. I was sort of dozing off; I’m here working on “Thor: Ragnarok,” which is enormous fun. Chris Hemsworth bought a round of tickets for “Ghostbusters” and a group of us went to see it. I’d just got home and my phone started exploding.

That sounds like pretty much the best day ever.

It’s been a great day: I got to play on set with Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth, went »

Emmy Nominations 2016: full nominee list

Chris Longo Jul 15, 2016

The Television Academy has spoken! Here are your 2016 Emmy Nominations...

The time to fill out your Emmy Madness Bracket is now. Wait, wrong event. But that would be fun, wouldn’t it? Kirsten Dunst slugging it out versus her network foe Sarah Paulson for Emmy gold. How about perennial favorite Game Of Thrones pitted against underdog newcomer Mr. Robot in the championship round? In the “peak TV” era, maybe a bracket formatted competition is the only true way to determine the best in the world of television.

Anyway, we’ll have to settle for fan polls and speculation as we countdown to the 68th Annual Emmy Award on Sunday, Sept. 18th on ABC. Until then, here is the list of nominees for the major categories. You can find the full list here.

Emmys 2016 Nominations: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Mr. Robot,’ ‘The Americans’ Get Major Nods

14 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The critics spoke, and TV Academy members listened.

Two TV critic faves, “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot,” managed to break through and land Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Drama category this year, while the comedy category was also dominated by well-reviewed series, such as newcomer “Master of None.”

The Television Academy’s attempts in recent years to broaden its membership, expand categories and open up its voting process continues to pay off, as new blood managed to sneak into many of the major categories. Not only did “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot” break through on the series side, but several of the shows’ leads landed their first-ever Emmy acting nomination.

But many favorites also returned with a splash as well, including last year’s Outstanding Drama Series winner, “Game of Thrones.” The HBO juggernaut landed 23 nominations, the most of any program this year – and down just a tick from last »

Crime Dramas to Watch if You Like ‘The Night Of’

13 July 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Night Of” is one of the most well-reviewed TV series of the year, and it’s not difficult to see why. I’ve seen seven of its eight parts, and I won’t spoil anything, but it continues to be a highly watchable murder mystery and a generally excellent vehicle for capable actors like Bill Camp, John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, among others.

The Night Of” joins a long list of recent crime dramas that have garnered a ton of critical acclaim and sometimes the avid interest of the public as well; a few recommendations for things to watch after (or between episodes of) the HBO drama follow. But first, it’s worth noting how crime, one of TV’s sturdiest genres, has adapted so capably to the storytelling possibilities of the Peak TV era.

It’s not as if the crime drama ever went away, of course. But what’s generally true of this new »

The Top 10 TV Shows of 2016, So Far

8 July 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

10. “The Night Manager

It took Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier to finally bring John Le Carre’s espionage thriller to life, and boy, did she ever. The miniseries was striking in every way, from the global locales and picturesque hotels to the way characters were displayed upon such backdrops. More than just eye candy, Tom Hiddleston as soldier-turned-spy Jonathan Pine was a man with a mission, quietly stoic in the face of his nemesis Richard Roper, played with dangerous glee by Hugh Laurie. Olivia Colman brought the heart, Elizabeth Debicki the heartache and Tom Hollander a sense of impotent rage. The storytelling was large in scale yet intimate in how it played out, and it’s no wonder that viewers are hoping for more, even though Le Carre never wrote a sequel.
