Four more cast members have been announced for BBC One / AMC’s new adaptation of John le Carré’s The Night Manager.

Joining the previously announced cast, Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander and Elizabeth Debicki, will be David Harewood (Homeland), Neil Morrissey (Line Of Duty), Katherine Kelly (Mr Selfridge) and Tobias Menzies (The Honorable Woman).

Adapted by David Farr, The Night Manager follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Hiddleston) who is recruited by an intelligence operative to navigate the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington, where an unholy alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To infiltrate the inner circle of lethal arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (Laurie), Pine must himself become a criminal.

The Night Manager is currently filming and will air on BBC One and AMC in the US in 2016.
