Tom Hiddleston's TV Choice Award Acceptance Speech Gets Crashed By Idris Elba & Chris Hemsworth
After starring in Susanne Bier's The Night Manager, Tom Hiddleston has now won a coveted award for his work on the film. The British actor recently won a TV Choice Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Jonathan Pine. However, the actor was unable to attend the star-studded event as he's filming Thor: Ragnarok at the moment. As such, the actor filmed a video to give thanks for the award, giving two of Tom's co-stars the perfect opportunity to crash the speech.
Dressed in sharp navy jacket, Tom looks poised as ever accepting the award, but the video takes a turn once Chris Hemsworth wanders on screen. The Australian actor grabs the trophy from Tom, asking, "Oh, is that for us? It's for Home and Away, yeah?" Of course, the actor is referring to a television series that he worked on way back in 2004.
Then, without warning, Idris Elba comes into frame sporting a light-blue jean button up. The actor looks over the trophy before leaning into Tom's mic to ask, "How come Luther didn't get nominated?" Produced by BBC, Luther stands as one of the network's most popular crime dramas and features one of Idris's breakout roles as Inspector John Luther.
The trio continues to joke around as Chris notes the trophy has three stars for the friends to split amongst one another. However, Tom did bring the video back around when he says he loved working on The Night Manager before his co-stars slip out of the video.
The Night Manager was co-produced by AMC and BBC One, and it adapts a story by John le Carré of the same name. Starring Hugh Laurie (House, M.D.), the show focuses on a contemporary interpretation of the spy drama. The Night Manager follows a soldier named Jonathan Pine as he navigates his way through the shadowy intelligence communities of Whitehall and Washington. Asked to infiltrate the underbelly of these organizations, Pine must join the inner circle of Richard Onslow (Laurie) and become a criminal himself
When Tom joined the series, he released a statement which read, "I could not be more excited to join BBC One, The Ink Factory and AMC for The Night Manager...It's an honor and a privilege to work with such truly impeccable collaborators as Hugh Laurie and Susanne Bier in bringing this to the screen. David Farr's screenplay, adapted from le Carré's brilliant novel, is absolutely outstanding. I'm beyond thrilled and I can't wait."
But, for now, Tom must focus his attention elsewhere as he wraps shooting for Thor: Ragnarok. The film is currently in production in Australia, and several on-set videos have hit the Internet which feature Chris and Tom in their Asgardian costumes. Tom even chose to don Loki's green leather get-up in his first ever Instagram post earlier this summer to tease fans about the villain's highly anticipated return.
Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to hit theaters on November 3, 2017.
