AMC has released its first trailer for six-part miniseries The Night Manager. Starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, the television adaptation of John le Carré’s novel premieres April 16.
Based on le Carré’s espionage drama, The Night Manager follows former British solider Jonathan Pine, played by Hiddleston, as he investigates a lethal arms dealer, Richard Onslow Roper. Roper is played by Laurie, who is known for his title role on House.
Speaking at the Television Critics winter press tour, Hiddleston, who plays Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, described his character as having a, “very calm exterior and a turbulent and chaotic interior.” Pine is someone, Hiddleston said, “who actually has a great amount of vulnerability and a huge amount of doubt.”
