Tom Hiddleston Ditched Best Friend's Wedding For Steven Spielberg, Talks 'The Night Manager'

Tom Hiddleston ditched his best friend's wedding for Steven Spielberg. The 35-year-old actor was waiting on a call to audition for Steven Spielberg's "War Horse," he told The Mirror, explaining, "It was one of those crazy things where I'd said I'd be there, even if Spielberg called. And Spielberg did call, and I wasn't there. We fell out really badly." "It's OK now," he added. "He read me the riot act and then we went out and got slammed." Hiddleston stars in the new BBC One series "The Night Manager," in which he plays "Jonathan Pine, a former British soldier with a service record in the Iraq War of 2003, who is discovered working as the night manager of a hotel in Zermatt, Switzerland, and is recruited by an intelligence operative named Angela Burr (Olivia Colman), working on the fringes of MI6," Hiddleston recently told Radio Times.


 He was drawn to the series, he said, because he's fascinated by the "opaque and mysterious" conversations that happen "behind closed doors in the corridors of power." "I don't doubt that the business of government and the intelligence and security services remains undisclosed in the interests of national security and international relations," Hiddleston told Radio Times, adding that "there is, behind the curtain, a complex network of interests and relationships, upon which depend our national security." For example, when "Prime Minister David Cameron called a vote in Parliament on whether Britain should participate in air strikes against Islamic State in Syria, in the wake of the attacks in Paris, notably at the Bataclan concert hall ... We were assured by our representatives on both sides of the House that air strikes would be reinforced on the ground by 70,000 moderate Sunni forces," Hiddleston said. "This intelligence, we were told, had come 'from the highest level,' and was presented as conclusive evidence of the legitimacy and validity of the Government's decision to send in British aircraft," he continued. "This intelligence may never be disclosed to the British public."
